DENVER – Coors Field is ready for the Rockies home opener Friday afternoon as they host the Los Angeles Dodgers all weekend long.

If you don’t have tickets yet, well, you’re probably out of luck. Tickets are sold out on the Rockies website, but there are still some available on the secondary market. The cheapest seat right now is $99. A sellout crowd is expected for all three games of the homestand.

If you can’t make it to Denver, the game will be televised on AT&T Sports Net and of course, Sports Directo Grant Meech will be there and will have highlights for you on News 5 at 6 p.m.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Fans are strongly encouraged to arrive early
  • Have your digital tickets loaded on your mobile device prior to arrival at the gates
  • Plan to be seated by 1:15 pm to enjoy the pre-game show

Don’t try to bring these prohibited items to Coors Field:

  • pocket knives
  • multi-tools
  • hard-sided coolers and thermoses
  • insulated cups over 22 ounces
  • alcoholic beverages
  • glass bottles
  • aluminum cans
  • aerosol cans (including sunscreen)
  • weapons
  • drones
  • marijuana

All guests are subject to metal detection security screening, walkthrough or wanding. You can only bring one bag per person and it must be 16″x16″x8″ or smaller.

Parking lots at Coors Field open at 9 a.m. Opening Day Fest begins at 11 a.m. Don’t bother trying to tailgate before the game, that activity is prohibited on Coors Field grounds, including all parking lots.

All gates open at 12 p.m. If you aren’t carrying anything inside, use the Express Lanes at Gates B, C and D. If you are a season ticket holder go to the Express Lanes at Gates A, C and E. Gate C on Blake St. is often the best option for short lines and wait time.
