The 10,000 Milwaukee Brewers tickets Christian Yelich purchased for fans as a 'thank you' are 'all gone'
As a "thank you" to fans, Christian Yelich purchased 10,000 tickets for the Milwaukee Brewers upcoming series against the St. Louis Cardinals to give away to fans — who eagerly took him up on the offer.
Yelich's tickets were released at 10 a.m. and were available to the public on a first-come, first-served basis, the Brewers website said. Shortly after noon, the Brewers tweeted that the tickets were "all gone."
People could redeem up to four free tickets per game for Sept. 20, 21, 22 and 23.
The offer was only available online and per-ticket fees applied, the website said.
People who scored tickets will get them, digitally, by Friday.
Around 10:30 a.m., the Brewers tweeted that they were "experiencing some technical issues" on their ticketing platform.
"We are eager to get these tickets into your hands, and we are working to resolve the issue," the tweet said. "Please check back for updates."
Around 10:50 a.m., the Brewers tweeted that the site was "back up" and that people who "experienced an issue" ordering tickets this morning should try again.
"The tickets are all gone!" the Brewers tweeted shortly after noon. "Thanks again to @ChristianYelich for helping get the Crew out to the ballpark."
