DAVENPORT, Iowa (December 17, 2014) – The Quad Cities River Bandits announced on Wednesday their 70 home game times for the 2015 Midwest League season, as well as new ticket plans now available for purchase. The River Bandits will kick off the season Saturday, April 11, at 9:00 a.m. with the third annual Bandits Race to Home 5K and Kids Fun Run presented by Palmer Chiropractic Clinics to benefit the Bandit Scholars Program, and the team's first home game will be at 1:15 p.m. Sunday, April 12, at Modern Woodmen Park.
The quickest, most affordable and flexible way to get River Bandits tickets for the 2015 season is with a ticket plan. After hosting a stadium-record average of 3,885 fans per game and winning the award for the nation's Best Ballpark Improvement from Ballpark Digest for the fourth time in seven seasons, the River Bandits are offering a new set of ticket plans – ranging from 12-game mini-packs to 70-game, full-season plans – that all come with unbeatable savings on tickets, free parking, merchandise discounts, guaranteed giveaway items and more.

“Our new ticket plans are just the beginning of the rewards for people across the region who gave their record-setting support to the River Bandits last season,” said River Bandits owner Dave Heller. “With the improvements and promotions we are planning for 2015, our fans will enjoy even more value with the same affordable prices that make the game day experience at Modern Woodmen Park so memorable – along with the most liberal ticket exchange policy around!”
Individual tickets are scheduled to go on sale during spring training and will again range from $6 to $14 on game day, with the option to save $1 per ticket by purchasing online or in advance of the day of the game. For ticket plan holders, the more you buy the more you save. The savings begin at 15 percent off the gate price with a 12-game mini-plan. They save 20 percent with an 18-game, quarter-season plan, 25 percent with a 35-game, half-season plan, and 30 percent with a 70-game, full-season plan.
