SIngle game tickets go on sale tomorrow for those that made a donation. The e-mail from the athletic dept said that the dynamic pricing notice would go out tonight with starting points for the single games. Anyone want to venture what ND or OSU tickets might start at?
Dynamic Pricing Starts Tmrw
They will start at 195 and 175.
Dynamic Price (Endzone)*
Market Price (Endzone)**
D'oh. Missed that. Thanks!
Lol. It's ok.
Interesting note: Stubhub prices seem to be coming down (i.e. tickets for ND starting at 300) so I feel like they won't have so much room to move up w/ respect to dynamic pricing.
Will be gone. The donors get first crack at them tomorrow and I doubt there will be any left for the rest of us. ND is just to in demand. Expecting the same of the Ohio game. They sold out of those tickets during the Multi-pack sale.
Stub hub or bust.
You missed the footnotes, these dynamic prices are at least a month old (I saw the same prices at the beginning of the month) and will be updated tonight.
* Expected Initial Dynamic Price subject to change as the on-sale date nears based on market factors listed in the FAQ above. This listed price was determined through quantitative and qualitative findings within Michigan Athletics and QCue.
** Average Secondary Market Ticket Price based off an aggregate number of secondary market ticketing sites. Current averages as of June 26, 2013.
So how does this work now for people looking to buy single tickets? Can we just buy them via stubhub? Is there a better way to get them (scalpers)? I am looking to go back for a game this year for the first time since I graduated.
Really stretching the truth with the CMU/Akron/Minnesota/IU average secondary market price. I doubt they include scalpers, but those tickets can be had for under $50 EASILY in about 20 minutes on State St. You could probably get student tickets for under $20.
is always season ticket pricing ($65/each this year). This is done to encourage people to get season tickets and if the dynamic pricing went below that dollar amount then there would be a revolt.
What are those averages based on? A quick search on StubHub reveals they are all way, way off. I guarantee no one pays $130 for a ticket to the Indiana game. You could get free tickets to Akron on game day.
Also tickets to Akron are like 35 bucks on Stubhub right now.
Dynamic pricing on vowels must've already started, eh, OP?
expect more demand for ND than OSU
I think it's because OSU is on Thanksgiving weekend. Also, ND is the last one at Michigan Stadium for the foreseeable future.
...and I just bought tickets to the BTCG. The way I see it, there is a 96.1% chance that either us or OSU will be in the game (or both). So I'll either go, or I will profit - being as I live in Columbus. I got section 640. I prefer upper deck 50 yard line over the only better tickets available - 200 deck in a corner. Get me there, Hoke...
DYNAMIC isn't really the first thing that pops into my mind.
What is the total cost for a pair of season tickets? Between the interest list, the PSDs and ticket costs, I am very confused.
How much must one donate to be eligible to buy season tickets? What are the annual PSDs per seat, and then what are the costs for the package of tickets per seat? To be easy, lets pretend we are talking about the worst seat in the house. How much would I have to spend for two tickets?
I'm sure this is on the mgoblue.com site somewhere, but just to give you a quick answer, the season ticket price is 445 per seat. I think endzone psd is 75 per seat. So you can add that together and multiply by 2 for a pair.
You also need to donate some amount in order to be "offered the opportunity" to purchase tickets. On this board, the consensus seems to be that is about (at least) another 500 bucks of donations.
All correct, although I believe the psd is only for renewals, not new season ticket holders (I wasn't charged psd, but had to cough up $500 for the opportunity to buy tickets.
It is about $1,500 then for a pair of tickets. That's less than I thought it would be, but still a lot of money. I've also read the $500 donation is tax-deductable; but how much of that is actually deductable? I already go long form and I know how much I get back on $500 worth of business expenses (not a lot).
Not sure what you're talking about re: long form. But the way that the tax deduction works is the same way that it would work if you were donating money to your church or other charitable foundation, etc. The only difference is that PSD's are 80% deductible (whereas regular-way donations are 100% deductible).
I'm sure you already know this, but I might as well say that the deductions only matters if you're itemizing your taxes. If you take the standard deduction, then this won't benefit you.
How the heck is the "secondary market price" for Indiana more than Nebraska?
Or more than face value for that matter??
How this dynamic ticketing works. So can someone help me figure out (roughly) how much it might cost to get notre dame seats at the 30 yard line?
I too want to know this, as my friends and I are aiming to make a road trip from Madison for the game that weekend. Also, there are 6 of us, but only 4 tickets can be bought at once ... how would a group of 6 go about getting seats next to each other?
Sideline tix are going to be in short supply via Dynamic Pricing. As context, this dynamic pricing is geared towards unloading the leftover endzone tix. In other words, they have only fleshed out the pricing for the endzone tix so far... therefore, sideline tix (if any) will be "X" amount above the endzone tix.
This makes sense from UofM's perspective since they would rather sell season tix for as much of the stadium as possible since that gets them hefty PSD's plus they have the confidence knowing that season tix holders will keep their season tix (for the most part) even through weak home schedules (i.e., football 2014) and losing years (i.e., RR years).
I'm a student looking to go to the Penn State game this year. What is the best method for buying tickets? I'd like to sit in the "away student section" if possible, but will take anywhere in the stadium.
as a season ticket holder I really benefit from the dynamic pricing. just the nd and ohio games alone make getting the season tickets worth it, since buying the individual dynamic tickets alone equal my psd.
yea, but as previously mentioned on this board... this changes based on the home schedule, strength of opponents, success of team, etc.
for example, the 2014 home schedule doesn't have marquee games, etc. therefore, you might come out ahead in 2013, but behind in 2014.
I'm a season ticket holder too. I'm paying the same as I ever did. You must mean that it makes season tickets look like a better deal than they did before, and I guess that's kind of true. But I wouldn't call it a benefit. Just other people having to pay more.
Basically Michigan is trying to cut into the profit margin that people have been making on the secondary market. Not a bad idea because it creates more revenue for the school. Terrible idea for the fans because now guys like me are going to have to shell out more clams to see big games.
That's if it works. I'm betting there aren't as many people out there willing to shell out $195 minimum per ticket with no real way of recouping any $$$ on the purchase price on secondary market, meaning that say someone who would buy 4 tickets at face value and sell 2 at a profit, would get their tickets cheaper is now a thing of the past.
Also, I hate posting via iPhone. Thanks
I am taking my daughter to her first game this year. I was looking at some options and I have a quick question for you guys.... Are the corner seats ok? I was looking at section 6 to be specific. We are driving up from North Carolina and want her to enjoy it all and be able to see.
All the seats are pretty good views. But no section is going to be a good view if the people around her are standing and she's short. Plus, if she's really young, you probably don't want to she'll out a lot for seats and then have her ready to leave by the 3rd quarter.
Sideline tickets (85-90 rows up) are priced at $425 per.
