It’s been 22 long years since the Atlanta Braves last had a World Series run, and fans could not be more hyped to watch the team beat the Houston Astros. But tickets for the home games at Truist Park are . . . pricey, to put it lightly. So if you’re looking for another spot to watch the games, which start October 26 in Houston, we’ve rounded up a list of places broadcasting the World Series and boasting various specials below.
2021 World Series schedule
Game 1: Tuesday, October 26 in Houston, 8:09 p.m.
Game 2: Wednesday, October 27 in Houston, 8:09 p.m.
Game 3: Friday, October 29 in Atlanta, 8:09 p.m.
Game 4: Saturday, October 30 in Atlanta, 8:09 p.m.
Game 5: Sunday, October 31 in Atlanta, 8:15 p.m.
Game 6: Tuesday, November 2 in Houston, 8:09 p.m.
Game 7: Wednesday, November 3 in Houston, 8:09 p.m.
A few things to keep in mind
- Game 5 is on Halloween, and Game 4 will likely coincide with a lot of Halloween parties and events, which means more folks will be out and about.
- Assuming there’s a Game 6, it’s on Election Day, so don’t forget to vote! Polls close at 8 p.m. in the City of Atlanta and 7 p.m. elsewhere, so you can vote before the game starts.
- Sadly, we are still in a pandemic, so be mindful of that as you celebrate. Follow local masking guidance and embrace the outdoors. Popular bars and venues will likely be very crowded during the World Series, so if you’re at high risk for Covid-19, you might want to watch the Braves at home.
What’s happening at the Battery Atlanta
The Battery Atlanta, home of Truist Park, will likely be the place to be during this World Series run, as we saw during the NLCS. For the uninitiated, the mixed-use complex is home to several restaurants, including Superica, Terrapin Taproom (which serves Fox Bros Bar-B-Q), H&F Burger, El Super Pan, Antico Pizza, and Ph’East, among others. It’s also home to plenty of sports bars, including Yard House, the mammoth Sports & Social bar, and entertainment bar Punch Bowl Social.
There is a ton of outdoor space at the Battery, and the Braves will host a watch party on the plaza lawn on October 26 and 27 with appearances from Blooper and tailgate games. The activities start 30 minutes before first pitch. On November 2, the Braves are hosting fans inside Truist Park to watch Game 6. Tickets are $10 for lower and terrace level, $20 for the Infiniti Club, and $75 for outfield seating. Advance parking passes will be available for 415.
The Battery’s Silverspot Cinema will also play the game on its 200-inch video wall and offer food and drink specials at its S Bar, including half-off bar bites and flatbreads, $8 cocktails, and $6 beers on Tuesday through Thursday; and half-off flatbreads on Friday through Sunday after 5 p.m.
If you’re heading to the Battery, make your parking plans in advance and expect to pay higher-than-normal prices. Rideshare prices are also expected to surge.
