Tigers surpass all-time attendance record07/19/2007 5:11 PM ET
DETROIT -- Through the close of business on Wednesday, sales of Tigers tickets for the 2007 season surpassed the previous club record total, which was set in the 1984 World Championship season at Tiger Stadium.
Tickets sold for the entire season at the close of business Wednesday stood at 2,712,393. The previous record, set in 1984, was 2,704,794. Detroit has sold out 21 of its 44 home dates at Comerica Park and will open the Kansas City series on Friday night with a string of nine consecutive sellouts. The Tigers had a total of 26 sellouts on their way to the American League Championship in 2006.
"The support of Tigers fans has been tremendous and we look forward to an exciting race over the final months of the season," said Tigers President, Chief Executive Officer and General Manager David Dombrowski. "I certainly hope fans will begin making their plans now to be at the ballpark and keep the energy level as high as it has been all year."
Tickets for all three games of the Royals' series and all remaining Tigers home games are available at the Comerica Park Box Office, online at www.tigers.com, over the phone by calling (866) 66-TIGER (84437), or at Detroit-area Meijer stores.
