Banner Day - Saturday, May 11

Come out to Citi Field for Banner Day on Saturday, May 11 and participate in a Mets tradition. Fans of all ages will be invited to parade around the field with homemade banners that profess their love for the team.

Banner Day was a Mets tradition from 1963 to 1996 with fans of all ages parading on the field showing their homemade banners made from bed sheets that professed their love for the team. Banner Day returned last year as part of the Mets' 50th Anniversary season.

Fans planning on participating in the pre-game, on-field parade on May 11, should follow these guidelines:

  • Banner Day participants must have tickets to the game
  • Participants must check in at the Bullpen Plaza on 126th Street at 37th Avenue
  • Registration begins at 10:00 a.m. Space is limited.
  • Banners must be at least 22" by 28" in size
  • Banners may not contain vulgar or abusive language
  • Banners can be commercially produced, but can't have commercial messages (Web sites or Twitter handles are not allowed)
  • There is a maximum of four people per banner
  • The Mets reserve the right to deny access to the field to any banner or person that is deemed inappropriate

Mets Ambassador Edgardo Alfonzo, SNY Field Reporter Kevin Burkhardt and 92.3 NOW's Ty Bentli will serve as judges. Fans who created the winning banner will receive four VIP tickets, the opportunity to watch batting practice from the field, Mets autographed merchandise and in-game recognition at a mutually agreeable game.
