In the past, all spectator seating has been open seating, so you had to get there right when the gates opened to get a premier seat. Now you have the opportunity for an additional $15 to purchase reserved seats in the center section for spectators. There will still be open seating for spectators, but we are offering a new option to buy reserved seats.
First ones to purchase, get the best seats. Last year we sold out of Premium seats - so get your tickets early!
