Happy 15 years to our ecommerce site!

We’re really excited to announce that today is the 15 year anniversary of our eCommerce site! Launched on August 8th, 1998, the site catapulted TicketCity into the world of online ticket sales.

To celebrate, we’re doing $10 off all orders $50+ through midnight- use code “FIFTEEN” at checkout.

We’ve created a little video to show you guys just how our online presence changed throughout the years. We’ve been laughing at the terrible 90s web design all morning!

Here’s to another 15 years!

The Tadros are June Clients of the Month!

June Clients of the Month Robert and Jenni Tadros remind us that baseball is an international pastime, not just an American one. As residents of Australia, the Tadros look forward to their annual vacation in the US – an opportunity for the family to experience the excitement of MLB games in person.

Robert and Jenni count visiting every stadium on their list of life long goals. And their three children have vowed to help complete the series.

So far, the Tadros have explored six different stadiums including Dodgers Stadium, Nationals Park, and Yankee Stadium.  On their visit this year, they’ll be visiting the stadiums of the Tampa Bay Rays and the Marlins, while also attending the All Stars Game at Citi Field.

The die-hard baseball family is counting down the days to buy tickets to the Diamondbacks and Dodgers game that will be played in Australia next year. One of their sons saves up his money to buy jerseys and miniature bats from every stadium to hang in his room. Talk about dedication!

Their most memorable sporting event was celebrating their son Shane’s 16th birthday at the Dodgers Stadium. The Tadros greatly enjoyed their tour of the stadium that day and seeing a “Happy 16th Birthday” banner on the big screen for Shane!

Each member of the family has a different favorite team, ranging from the Giants to the Dodgers to the Yankees. And while they live and breathe baseball, the Tadros hope to one day attend a basketball game or the Superbowl!

We’re very excited and proud to have the Tadros as Clients of the Month.
