    Were you guys able to get tickets already because you’re a group? It seems like single-game tickets aren’t on sale yet for the Nats…

    Yes, I guess so.

    how long does it take to get to DC from philly? I’m from outside of Harrisburg and it takes me about hour and a half drive get to philly, it takes about 2 and a half to get to DC. any thoughts???

    Logistically you’d be better off driving there because It’s like an extra hour or so of a drive from Philly as compared to HBurg. But, if you want the full Phillies experience you could do the bus. But, we are leaving at 7AM exactly so you’d have to leave at like 4am to make it on time.

    Does anybody know when single game tickets go on sale for the Nats? Not that I should really be worried, because last year’s Nats home opener I got great seats by just going to on the morning of the game. They can’t give those things away, apparently.

    I tried to contact you guys through the website, but there’s no form to fill out. Interested in the bus trip, but would like to know more details about the tailgate party (if any food/beverages are included). Also, how many more seats you guys have available, I have a decent size group of people interested.

    I was wondering if you would be adding another bus for the trip? I bought tix to the game and tailgate but would love to take a bus instead of driving there. Thanks.

  13. Brian Michael

    January 25, 2010 at 2:54 pm

    3rd and 4th buses added. Maybe a fifth. Tickets available here:

    Hey guys, I live in DC and I am going to get tix through you guys. How do I actually get the tickets from you once I order them? Will you mail them to me? or am I just going to have to get them from you in the parking lot once you guys get to DC?

  15. Kurt

    January 26, 2010 at 9:43 am

    Never mind, all you guys had left was 5 tix so I just bought 14 tix on StubHub in section 107. See you guys in the lot and in the stadium. GO PHILS!!

    Will we be able to leave our cars parked in the lot at CBP?

    I tried emailing with some questions before signing up for this trip…I just want to be sure what is covered for the $82?? All food? All drinks and beer? Plus the tickets and bus ride? Seems like an incredible price for all of that so wanted to check in. Can someone email me with more information at


  18. Ray

    January 27, 2010 at 7:15 pm

    Any word on where we are to park for the bus trip? Is all beer and food included on trip or should we bring some beverages with us

  19. Stephen

    January 27, 2010 at 11:49 pm

    If these guys are sold out or if you’re looking for a larger group of tickets, I would check out They have sold out 6 full buses already and say they have a ton more tickets. There package is $99 and includes bus, ticket, tailgate. Beer and snacks on the bus. A fully catered all you can eat and all you can drink tailgate party with live entertainment or a dj or both, i don’t remember off hand. I even think the Mummers are going to be there to lead a parade to the stadium pregame. they have lower level tickets together. I’ve travelled with them before too and the tailgate is incredible.

    Is there any chance of another bus being added by PhilliesNation? I am considering going, and will buy a ticket from, but they are $20 more. So I just want to see if there is a chance of getting a ticket from here before buying a ticket from them.

  25. Jessica

    February 4, 2010 at 11:38 pm

    Phillies Nation has not disclosed whether another bus will be added.

    Price includes ticket, roundtrip bus ride, some beer for the bus, hot dogs, hamburgers, and beer (lots!) for tailgaiting, and giveaways.

    You can park in the P lot at Citizen’s Bank Park.

    Phillies Nation will email you to see whether you’d like the tickets mailed to you or if you want to get them at the buses.

    Will there be any handicapped seats available? If so I will take 2 tics.

  27. Gina

  28. Meg

    February 19, 2010 at 12:32 pm

    Are there any tickets available without the bus? I have three people who want to come but live in the DC area that want just tickets and tailgating. Is this possible?

  29. Joshua

    February 22, 2010 at 4:54 pm

    I am seeing some disgruntled people on your facebook page. They got their tickets and were not in section 107 as promised. Are we sitting in section 107 or did we get moved to another section

  39. John

    March 28, 2010 at 1:08 pm

    I got my tickets and they are in section 420 row N. That is far different than section 107 which was shown when purchasing. I am not very happy about it especially when the price shown on the tickets is $13. I sent some e-mails and am waiting for a response.

  40. Dave

    March 28, 2010 at 1:27 pm

    I too have just received my tickets, 4 seats in Section 227 with a face value of $25.00. Yet the invoice that was enclosed is for $152.00. Needless to say, I’m not thrilled about this. I could’ve gotten better tickets on StubHub had I known this was going to happen.

  41. paul

    March 28, 2010 at 4:42 pm

    Like john I also ordered tix for the lower section only to receive sec 420. 32 bucks for 13 dollar seats. not to mention false advertising. Wtf! Last time I ever come to this site. I want a refund

  42. Bill V

    March 29, 2010 at 5:44 pm

    I am not in section 107 either. Are we sitting alone? The whole idea was to be with Phillies fans together. Also, I paid for the tailgate and cannot find where this will be in DC?

  43. Matt N

    March 30, 2010 at 8:32 am

    Dave, Paul, John, Ray or Bill V,

    Do you have an e-mail address? I recieved my tickets and they are in the 400 level as well. I too sent an e-mail and have recieved no response about this issue. I feel a little miffed. But I do feel Brian can make this right. So let’s hope we hear from him soon.

    Hey, very nice website. I actually came across this on Ask Jeeves, and I am stoked I did. I will definately be returning here more often. Wish I could add to the post and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment.

    Thank You
