Message | From the owners
Dear Red Sox Season Ticket Holders,
On behalf of the entire Red Sox organization, we want to thank you for your unconditional support, passion, and dedication. As a Season Ticket Holder, you are the heart and soul of Red Sox Nation, and we are grateful for your undying loyalty to the team.
As a gesture of our gratitude, we are excited to present you with a loyalty program offered exclusively to Season Ticket Holders: Red Sox Rewards. Through this Rewards program, you will have the opportunity to enjoy once-in-a-lifetime Red Sox experiences, such as throwing out the first pitch, watching a game from the Owners' Suite, spending an inning inside the Green Monster, or even going on a road trip with the team.
We encourage you to review all of the information on this website so that you can learn more about this exciting program. Thank you again for your continued support.
John Henry, Tom Werner, and Larry Lucchino
How It Works:
- As a Season Ticket Holder, you are automatically enrolled as a Red Sox Rewards Member.
- You will receive personalized membership card(s) that you can elect to use for digital ticketing or to pay for concessions to make future visits to Fenway more convenient. In addition, you can access your membership cards and tickets through the Ballpark App from your iOS or Android mobile device.
- Earn Red Sox Rewards Points simply for doing things you already do, such as attending games at Fenway, following games on TV or the radio, following the Red Sox on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, and a variety of other activities.
- Redeem your Points for incredible Rewards that are not available anywhere else. Want to throw out a first pitch, watch a game from inside the Monster, sit in the front row, or even take a road trip with the team? All of this and more is possible with your Red Sox Rewards Points.
THE REWARDS | MEMBERSHIP LEVELS
As you earn points throughout the season, you will qualify for different membership tiers and benefits at the Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Diamond Levels:
- Bronze: A coupon for $50 off your purchase of $150 or more at the Souvenir Store
- Silver: An invitation to Family Photo Day at Fenway Park after the season
- Gold: An invitation to a luncheon with a player (autographs, photos, Q&A session)
- Diamond: An All-Access Pass granting access to exclusive areas of Fenway Park
These are calculated via Average Points – your Total Points divided by the number of seats in your plan. That way, all members have an equal opportunity to attain each level regardless of their number of seats.

- Season Ticket Holder tenure

Learn More | Contact Us
We would love to hear from you! Email email@example.com or contact your Season Ticket Account Executive with any questions.
If you would like to learn more about the various aspects of this program please watch the brief tutorial videos below. Please check back as we will add additional videos from time to time.
The points you earn during the season for your activity – such as attending and watching games, using digital ticketing, and spending eCash – are deposited into your Total Points balance. Total Points accumulate based on your activity for each of the seats in your plan.
For example, if you scan two digital tickets through the turnstiles, you will earn 50 points per scan, for 100 Total Points. Similarly, if you have two seats in your account and you redeem a road game code (5 points per seat), you will receive 10 Total Points.
Total Points is your ‘currency’ for bidding on Rewards Auctions, redeeming for items in the Marketplace, or for entering Rewards Raffles.
Average Points represent your total points divided by the number of seats in your plan. Average Points are used to calculate membership tiers, as well as determine the standings in our Fan of the Month and Fan of the Year competitions. This was created to put everyone on a level playing field, regardless of how many seats are in your plan.
In other words, redeeming your Total Points balance on an Auction item will not affect your position in the Fan of the Month standings.
For tickets donated to the Red Sox Foundation (via your My Tickets account), you will receive an additional 5 points for each ticket that you donate, on top of the 10 points for each ticket scanned into the game. If the tickets are not used, no points will be awarded.
Average Points are reset to zero at the end of each season to ensure that every Red Sox Rewards member has an equal opportunity to reach the various tiers each season and enjoy the commensurate rewards.
- Early Entrance Bonus: Members who arrive to the game at least 45 minutes early will receive 5 points per seat.
- 'Complete Game' Code Word Bonus: Toward the end of home games (in the 8th inning), a code word will be displayed on the New Balance video board. You can enter this code word in the member portal to receive an additional 5 points per seat bonus.
- Ticket Donation Bonus: When you donate a ticket to the Red Sox Foundation (available in the My Tickets interface), you will automatically receive 5 points for each ticket donated. If the tickets are scanned in at the game, you will still receive 10 points per scan.
- In-game Points: When the Sox score, you score! Digital ticket users will receive in-game bonuses every time the Red Sox hit a home run, a grand slam, or record a walk-off win. You will also earn points if a Red Sox starting pitcher strikes out 10 or more batters, or throws a no-hitter! Paper ticket users can also earn this bonus by scanning their Rewards card at any of the five kiosks located inside the entry gates.
Additionally, your Average Point balance automatically qualifies you for certain membership tiers and benefits over the course of the season. You don’t need to redeem anything to receive those benefits!
