want to take the kids to hoops game tonight...would it be easy to get 4 tickets to lower bowl (blue) from a scalper? i've always had tix before game, but since it's last minute gotta go via scalpers...and i can't see worth a shit from golds...thanks guys in advance
um/wisky hoops ticket question
So far. Many folks looking to move their ledger towards the black will make good on a game like tonight. Scalpers will definitely follow suit...and then some.
Should be relatively easy, depending on how much you're willing to spend, of course. I live right across from the stadium on hoover, and I see plenty of scalpers trying to sale tickets as I walk through the parking lot.
On a somewhat related note, there are still some tickets available for tonight in the Golds. I went to the ticket office during lunch to pick mine up and I asked the guy if we're sold out yet, and he said pretty close but pairs in gold still available.
I did a quick search for some tickets for myself and, compared to any other game this season, the wisco tickets seem to be in very high demand. There are more people wanting than offering.
This being said, there is no doubt you will be able to scalp some tickets but they will be pretty over priced.
Best way to get tickets before a game is to scour craigslist and facebook for students trying to sell their tickets.
If you aren't set on getting blue tickets, I would suggest getting $5 gold tickets. Go to mgoblue.com/tickets and click on Promotions on the left side. When prompted for a code, type in FACULTY, and you should be able to get $5 tickets together. I don't believe you have to be faculty or staff to use this code, but am not 100% sure. No convenience charge at all, and can print your tickets from home.
I live in Korea so the plane ticket would sort of bump up the overall cost, but if I still lived in AA I'd be doing this every game. Has anyone done this recent.ly?
I decided to go to the game a few days ago and was able to get one ticket in the blue seats on MgoBlue.com. It was probably because I just needed one. A bit of a surprise still. But getting 4 seats together in the blue might be challenging. 2 pair would be easier I'd think.
and i can't see worth a shit from golds
Oh come on. The gold seats aren't that bad.
