(Dyersville, IA)-- Much anticipation and mystery surrounds MLB's first game in the state of Iowa. After getting canceled due to the pandemic in 2020, the Field Of Dreams game is set to be played on August 12th, 2021. But no one knows if they'll be attending yet!
In this article, we've outlined three ways you can still get tickets to the MLB Field Of Dreams game.
With less than a month before game time, Major League Baseball hasn't officially allocated any tickets to the game yet. This move may be an attempt to slow what will certainly become a hot secondary resale market. But on the other hand, we all want to know how to get tickets in the first place!
How Do I Get Tickets To the Field Of Dreams MLB Game?
Registration for the ticket lottery exclusively for Iowa residents has already closed. This means, there are already winners out there, they just haven't been announced yet. Some lucky residents will earn the right to purchase two game tickets.
In case you aren't an Iowa resident or missed the lottery, allow me to ease your pain! Because below I've compiled the ways you can still win tickets to the Field Of Dreams game.
The first-ever MLB at Field Of Dreams presented by GEICO certainly has a once-in-a-lifetime appeal. It's a hard ticket to get your hands on. Only 8,000 fans will be able to attend the game live.

That said, there's still other ways to experience the Field of Dreams, just not on gameday.
Rent the House at Field Of Dreams... and Get There by Riverboat?
If you can't make it to the game, visiting the Field of Dreams is still worthwhile. Somewhat surpisingly, you can actually rent the Field Of Dreams for a night! You can book the house, and the field. Talk about a nice AirBNB!
You can book the house, and get VIP access the field. I wrote about the night my family stayed at the house-- it was surreal and unforgettable.
Beyond The Game
There's a rotating series of events happening at the field. Beyond The Game is festival surrounding the Field of Dreams game. It will be ongoing in Dyersville 8/11-8/14.
And finally, you can even incorporate a visit to the Field of Dreams as part of a River Boat Cruise. The Riverboat Twilight travels the Upper Mississippi between Dubuque, IA and Le Claire, IA (also home of American Pickers).
Of course, you can always simply drive to the field and visit for the day. Don't forget your mitt, because you'll want to have a catch.
