Buying / Selling UM tickets thread with spreadsheet

Buying / Selling UM tickets thread with spreadsheet

[UPDATE 8/26/2014 from Seth:]

While the ticket spreadsheet was awesome for its time, we've known for some time that it's subject to abuse, and more likely to be damaged the more our community has grown. We've been on the lookout for some way to add a layer of security that's still free on both ends. Now we have that!

Go here: http://www.tiqiq.com/sellerdirect and sign in with your Facebook account. Then list your tickets, put MGoBlog somewhere in your description if you like, then copy the link to your tickets and paste on the spreadsheet.

Nobody's forced to use that system. This is just a protection for sellers so their price can't be changed, and for buyers so they know they're dealing with a real human with a name and pictures of their cat.

/UPDATE]

To go along with the 'more informative headlines' theme, this thread will hopefully get set as a sticky. I have made a spreadsheet listing all people selling and looking for tickets.. http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0Avnckx2kNv9GdGVPQXBQMDZQdFJ4RTJ… Basketball season is here.. I've started up a new sheet in the document for basketball. Ive made the permissions open to anyone to edit, so we'll try the trust method for a while until someone abuses. Feel free to post what you are looking for or selling. If it gets abused, I'll go back to the method of requiring someone to email me and then posting.

A non apparel related thread seems to be unwelcomed around these parts lately, but here goes. Im a newly minted season ticket holder and will only be able to make it to two or three games this fall. I've looked into selling the tickets to the remaining games on stubhub, craigslist, the mgoblog spreadsheet, and mgoblog/tiqIQ site. 

Which methods do you all have experience with and which are the best and worst? I like the idea of craigslist and the spreadsheet because theres no middle man. The seller makes a little bit more and the buyer save a little bit vs stubhub. On the otherhand you have very little protection with craigslist, not sure about the mgoblog spreadsheet. Stubhub also has a pretty cool feature that allows you to see what the tickets have sold for. 

One more question, can you trade tickets on the mgoblog ticket spreadsheet?

 

 

Questions for the Vets about season tickets

Questions for the Vets about season tickets

Submitted by MgoBlueprint on May 10th, 2015 at 2:24 PM

I know there was a thread the other day for the new season ticket holders, but I went back to it and there were some questions left unanswered. Hopefully there are some Big House vets that can answer some season ticket questions for some of us new season ticket holders.

I will get started with a few.

When do we get our seat assignments?

I know there are more than a few people that requested sections 21-25. What are the chances that those who made requests will get non endzone seats?

Do you get offered a few choices or do they just give you a seat or seats?

 

Also, I was looking at other schools season ticket sites, and I really like the virtual venue that other schools use. It seems like it makes the seat selection process easier.

I really like the virtual venue platform that other schools use. it seems like it makes the seat selection process alot easier. Do any of you think that michigan will use virtual venue or something similar in the near future?

As an FYI, in case you have missed all the emails and mailers from the Athletic Department, football season ticket renews start today and end at the end of the month.  They anticipate that you'll get your tickets sometime in mid July.

Im sure some other people must have also received this email a few minutes ago but it looks like they are send out options for season tickets next year if you bought a 2014 Go Blue or Family Pack of tickets.

You are guaranteed up to two (2) 2015 Michigan Football season tickets if you choose to purchase them.

In addition:
• Up to two (2) season tickets may be purchased
• Seats will be assigned in the end zone

In early September, we will follow up with you to see your interest in becoming a Season Ticket Holder.

Thanks again for your support of Michigan Football.

We look forward to seeing you this season, and hopefully next season too!

Its pretty tempting with the schedule next year but I live near Grand Rapids and think 7 trips to Ann Arbor is a little much. Also im a fan of sitting mid level in the corners or sidelines and not being stuck in row 70+ endzone.
 

Brandon not alone in his price gouging

It appears that ridiculous ticket price increases and seat licenses are NOT the brainchild of Dave Brandon (as much as we would like to believe).  There is a story on Eleven Warriors about the history and rise in ticket and PSD costs through the years.

While Ramzy gets some of his facts wrong on how PSDs and ticket prices are "subsidized" by the government, he does make a few good points.  It is interesting to note that the 2014 game between Michigan and Ohio will run $150 each. This is up from $70 two years ago.

Interesting read.  I didn't find a single bad word about Gene Smith.  He apparently can gouge the Buckeye fans at will while collecting his bonuses for National Championships from a wrestler has probably never met.

Football season ticket holder survey - 2012

Football season ticket holder survey - 2012

Submitted by BlueFish on November 30th, 2012 at 1:48 PM

Once again, I encourage all MGoBlog football season ticket holders to respond to the Athletic Department's season ticket holder survey, which should've hit your e-mail inbox this afternoon.  It's a lengthy survey (took me about 20 minutes to complete, since I once again provided lots of free-form comments), but it was a good opportunity to let the AD have it provide feedback on "stadium experience" issues that are frequently discussed on this blog (e.g., piped-in music/Special K, ticket prices, scheduling/competition, and...piped-in music).  If enough of us respond, we might just be heard.  But that's what I thought last year, too.

Oh, and somebody please tell them (on the last question) to include an "N/A" option on future surveys -- I forgot to do this (again) before submitting.  I can't really comment on the stadium experience for disabled persons or the helpfulness of the event staff (among other things), but the survey forces you to answer questions like that.

Go Blue!

P.S. For anyone interested, blog discussion on last year's survey: http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/football-season-ticket-holder-survey
