SEIU Saints Game _Rain-Out Ticket Exchange

Below is information for those who had tickets to the SEIU Saints Game but were rained out and want to exchange your tickets for another game:

Thank you for taking part in CHS Field history last night! Unfortunately, the historic moment was the Saints first postponed game at CHS Field. Even though the picnics still went on before the game with the rain the Saints were not able to play due to the weather.

Below is the process going forward in making sure everyone is still able to check out CHS Field.

Your tickets from last night may be exchanged for a Saints 2016 Regular Season home game for tickets of equal or lesser value (subject to availability).

If this occurs, we recommend exchanging tickets in advance of the game you wish to attend. Tickets must be exchanged at the Saints Box Office located at CHS Field.

To check on availability ahead of time please go to:

We look forward to having you out to the ballpark!
