CLEVELAND -- In an effort to give more fans access to potential postseason games at Progressive Field, the Cleveland Indians are hosting a ticket lottery.

Here’s how it works…

Fans can complete the lottery registration form at Indians.com/postseason and submit a refundable $50 deposit for a chance to purchase postseason tickets.

Online registration is open now until noon Monday, Oct. 15.

Each potential postseason series will have a registration cut-off date:

- Wild Card Game: Sept. 19 at 4:59 p.m.

- Division Series: Sept. 19 at 4:59 p.m.

- Championship Series: Oct. 4 at 4:59 p.m.

- World Series: Oct. 15 at 4:59 p.m.

Only one entry/deposit will be allowed per credit card, email and/or household.

Fans selected will be notified by e-mail of the opportunity to purchase up to a maximum of two tickets per offer.

The best way to guarantee access to 2018 postseason games is to place a deposit for 2019 season tickets. Fans who place a deposit for a full, half or quarter season plan by Sunday, Sept. 9 will receive advanced access to purchase tickets to all postseason games.
