The Phillies may have returned to earth after their scorching-hot start, but there are still plenty of reasons to attend an upcoming game at Citizens Bank Park this summer. Young stars like Vince Velasquez, Maikel Franco, Aaron Nola and Odubel Herrera highlight a roster that is poised to be a threat in the NL East in the coming years.
On top of a bevy of promising talent, the Phillies will also be giving away several notable promotional items over the next three months. It comes as no surprise, then, that five of these items and events serve as the team’s most expensive games of the summer. Check them out below, with ticket data provided by online aggregator TiqIQ:
7/17 vs Mets (Beach Towel Giveaway) | Avg. Price: $153.16 | Get-in: $10
The divisional rival New York Mets will make their second stop of the season in Philadelphia in mid-July, and a Sunday matinee game on July 17 will be the Phillies’ top-priced game of the summer. Tickets currently average over $150, though the cheapest is listed from $10. All children 14 and under will receive a Galapagos Gang Beach Towel featuring the Phanatic surfing with his fellow Phillies crew.
7/2 vs Royals (Fireworks Night) | Avg. Price: $118.90 | Get-in: $25
The defending World champion Kansas City Royals head to the City of Brotherly Love for a three-game weekend series between July 1 and 3.

Tickets for the game now own a secondary market average of $118.90 and the get-in price is $25.
