The Nationals yesterday announced prices for single-game tickets, with prices ranging from as little as $5 for some upper deck seats to as much as $335 for seats behind home plate.

Tickets go on sale March 4 to all games, including the March 30 opener against the Atlanta Braves.

The team also announced 15 premium games, including all Saturday games and the April 25-27 series against the Chicago Cubs. For those 15 dates, tickets will cost an additional $2 to $10 more a ticket depending on the location.

For nonpremium games, the ballpark’s Presidential Seats, located directly behind home plate, cost $325 a ticket, and the PNC Diamond Seats cost $170 a ticket. Both Presidential and Diamond Seats include parking and free food.

Tickets in the lower bowl of the stadium range from $35 to sit near the right-field or left-field bullpens to $75 to sit in the section behind either dugout. Club level tickets cost either $55 or $65, while seats on the mezzanine level are priced between $27 and $33.

Tickets in the center-field lounge, located in front of the restaurant beyond center field, will cost $67 and include a $20 food and beverage credit.

Seats in the upper deck range from $5 to $24. The $5 seats, located in the upper deck near the left-field foul pole, will be sold only on game days at the stadium box office.

With the exception of $5 and $10 seats, single-game tickets are priced between $4 and $25 more a ticket than if purchased as part of a season plan.

On average, tickets are about 20 percent more expensive than at RFK Stadium.

The Nationals said they will offer a $3 discount for most Monday through Thursday games to all senior citizens, government employees, active members of the military and college students.

Fans can receive discounts for most Tuesday games through Harris Teeter supermarkets and on Wednesday nights through discounts available through The Washington Post. The team also will offer “Family Fun Packs” on Sundays, featuring tickets, hot dogs, chips and a drink at a discounted price.

The box office at the Nationals’ new ballpark will not open until March 30.

The Nationals also yesterday released their promotional schedule, which includes 24 giveaways or other special events, more than twice as many as last season.

The team will give out free T-shirts to the first 10,000 fans at all Tuesday games and will give out 15,000 Ryan Zimmerman bobbleheads June 5 and 15,000 Dmitri Young bobbleheads May 1.

Other promotions include a free car flag April 12, Negro League salute May 3 and free green Nationals caps on Sept. 17 to celebrate “Half Way to St. Patty’s Day.” All fans who attend the game on Opening Night will receive a free Curly W lanyard.
