The Mets Are in the Playoffs — but Good Luck Getting Tickets

The New York Mets clinched a spot in the National League Wild Card game this weekend — but good luck getting tickets to the one-game playoff.

The team celebrated clinching both a Wild Card berth and home-field advantage Saturday with a champagne bath.

The Mets will take on the San Francisco Giants in the do-or-die NL Wild Card Game at Citi Field on Wednesday at 8 p.m.

For fans who haven't already secured their tickets, they're going to have to fork over some serious cash — if they can even get their hands on them. The team's official ticket site reads "this game appears to be sold out or has limited availability," and asks fans to contact customer service.

Fans might have better luck with third-party ticket resale sites. As of 10:30 a.m. Monday, StubHub had more than 4,000 tickets available, with the cheapest starting at $125 for standing room and the most expensive going for $3,000 a ticket to sit in the second row just to the right of home plate.

For those who do get tickets to the game Wednesday, they'll get to watch the Mets' 24-year-old ace Noah Syndergaard take the mound against Madison Bumgarner, who will pitch for the Giants.

The playoff spot comes after a rocky season for the Mets following their loss last year to the Kansas City Royals in the World Series.

The winner of the NL Wild Card Game will go on to face the Chicago Cubs in the National League Division Series.

Last year, the Mets swept the Cubs 4-0 one round later in the National League Championship Series to make it to the World Series
