Pirates to cover all ticket service fees August 1-3

The Pittsburgh Pirates announced today, in partnership with MLB.com, they will pay all service fees charged to fans for tickets purchased both over the phone and online at pirates.com during Wednesday, August 1, through Friday, August 3. Fans will be able to purchase tickets to any of the remaining Pirates home games in 2012 during this three-day offer, and the Pirates will cover the associated ticketing fees including all “print at home” and “mobile ticketing” orders.

The covered fees will apply to any ticket purchased during this three-day period, regardless of the date of the game of the purchased ticket. For example, a fan purchasing two tickets online or over the phone on Friday, August 3 for the Saturday, September 8 game against the Chicago Cubs will not be charged any service fees for placing that order.
