The Mets are hoping to make fans’ dreams come true— with a sleepover.

The team announced its first-ever “Citi Field Sleepover” will be on Saturday, August 10 at the ballpark. Tickets for the sleepover started to go on sale today at 10 a.m., and a presale was available yesterday for Mets season ticket holders.

Only 500 tickets will be available for purchase with 1-3 tickets for $200 or $175 for 4-6 tickets.

The Mets will be playing the Arizona Diamondbacks from 8:10 p.m. and fans can watch SNY’s live broadcast of the game on the big screen in center field. Fans attending the sleepover will receive a ticket to the Mets’ Saturday, September 28 game against the Milwaukee Brewers.

The 15- hour event will include a dinner buffet in FanFest without alcoholic beverages, late night snack in the Modell’s Clubhouse and breakfast.

The stadium will open at 5:00 p.m for the sleepover. Fans are responsible for bringing any sleeping material, such as sleeping bags, pillows, blankets and tents.

Only fans with sleeping bags can sleep on the grass and those with tents will be regulated to the warning track.

Mrs. Met returns to Citi Field

Behind every great Mr. Met there is a Mrs. Met and she’s back.

Gone for a few years, the better half of the iconic Mr. Met appeared at Citi Field recently, surprising fans, many of which may have never even known she existed.

Mrs. Met was apparently on sabbatical from the team, but will make regular appearances at the field, joining her husband to root the team on through a turbulent season.

“Mrs. Met has been busy taking care of her family at home in Flushing, Queens and working part-time as an event planner,” said team representatives.

Mrs. Met was first introduced in the 1970s and made a brief appearance in 2005. Old photos and even an ESPN commercial show the couple together with their three kids; two children and an infant.
