Not limiting tickets appears to have been a mistake as tickets are popping up everywhere on the Michigan sideline for 400+ dollars.
Lots of Stubhub tickets appearing from Michigan allotment
This may be a stupid question and off topic, but when do tickets for the MSU and UM game go on sale?
Not till later in the summer.
Which sideline is the Michigan sideline?
Would have been to limited ticket sales and to not sell our allotment. Selling out looks great for the University. The market will now set the price. My guess is that the price will creep back to face value a couple weeks before the game.
Why would it go down? It's the opening game for both teams, so the hype for the game will only increase as it gets closer.
Though every once in a while, the market will see an increase, and you'll get those people that see a spike when their tickets sell and then they renege on their sale. Happened to me with 2010 season tickets: I bought 2nd row student section seats for $750, seller told me he 'couldn't find them', then saw him re-list for $1000 or so.
You're assuming that the current ticket price matches "the hype" that exists now. If no one buys tickets for $400, the ticket prices will come down, even as people get more excited.
It's not a bowl game. There is no chance of Michigan not selling out their allotment to the season opener.
