FWIW: EMU Ticket Prices Bottomed Out

Submitted by Geaux_Blue on September 16th, 2011 at 8:22 PM

For those who were looking for a good excuse to go to the EMU game:

StubHub prices are now as low as $15 with sideline tickets as low as the $40s. I know it's a bodybag team and a lot of people are short on cash due to the ND game but I thought it worth bringing to light in case some weren't aware of how affordable this could be and have wanted to bring their kid, etc.

I'm surprised the seats ever get that low.  There are always the people who don't get to go to many games who would still like to see Michigan play EMU.  For that price you'd think more Eastern students would go.

I agree that this is the perfect game to take your 6 year old kid to.  Cheap tickets, he won't know the difference and he'll get to see a win.

Agreed.  That's how I got to go to games growing up--so I remember beating Wisconsin by a gazillion points (way back in the day, yeah), and watching cheerleaders do so many backflips off the wall they were getting dizzy, and hearing the roar of Go! Blue! and singing The Victors and cheering until I lost my voice.

I never recovered, hope I never do.

I invited my buddy, his fiancee, and his 7 year old son to the game since I had some extra tickets.  Apparently the kid is going nuts over the idea of seeing his first Michigan game.  I am glad to be able to bring him into the fold (my friend isn't a big Michigan fan but his fiancee is and I am trying to get the kid started off right).

Speaking of tix.  I have two endzone seats 42 rows up (section 13) that I'm not going to be able to use.  My mother is sick and had an episode tonight and it's going to keep me from going to the game. 

My mom lives out in the Swanton / Wauseon / Delta area about 30-40 mins west of Toledo.  I don't really mind what I get for them.  Face is $70 but damn, if you can get 'em for that low on StubHub... if you want 'em you can bring me a nice large cup of bean juice from McDonald's or something and we'll call it even. 

Holler if at all interested and you live out this way....

I just google mapped Morenci to Neapolis, OH.  It's gonna be 30-35 miles pending your Morenci location. 

I'd be happy to do that for you - nothing like a father-son day in the big house. 

I could drive a short way to meet you if it works out timing wise (mom needs someone here at all times, so I probably can't leave the house unless a nurse shows up, which they do here and there) - - otherwise, I can give you the address here.... let me know how you feel bout that drive and what time you'd be by to pick them up..

I've been fortunate and been to several games with my dad.  I look forward to the tailgate with him just as much as the game itself... so, glad I could help a brother out.  Every dude deserves the experience with his pops.

Thanks, too.  I've kind of learned it's just part of life.  We all go at some point and she's suffered waaaay too long.  Too many surgeries, chemo, surgeries, more chemo, etc.  Worst part is she's only 53 and my little bro is 15... so i feel bad for my bro.

But hey, enough on all that.  Appreciate all you great M fans.  Go Blue.

We lost my mother-in-law last year to ovarian cancer. You're absolutely right about the suffering. She's going to a better place. The positive thing that stuck with me was the numerous selfless acts you notice when going through that experience. Go Blue and God Bless.

There are a lot factors that are causing this. Having an 8 game home schedule is one of them. For a person like me, from Chicago, it's not plausible to make it to AA for 8 games especially since I plan on going to Illinois and northwestern. Unfortunately there are one or two that I can't go to because its starts to take a toll, physically, financially and socially.

buddy to go down for his bachelor party. He's taking a dozen tickets off me at face. I kinda feel bad. Especially since him doing this allowed me to buy a 4 pack to ND OSU and NEB.

But if any of the faithful want to sponsor me and my father to go this game I hope many blessings fall upon you, my dad has never been and he is a lifelong fan

Edit, never mind mgofootball is the man

I didn't get season tickets this year (I have a good hookup when I need one anyway) so playing the stubhub game has been by route. I had planned on getting tix and bringing Misopogal but then she got leveled with schoolwork and was maybe'ing me until tonight.

I'm getting up tomorrow and driving to Ann Arbor anyway and finding a ticket on campus.

Realistically you shouldnt have to pay more than $15-20 for a ticket.  The closer it gets to game time the lower the price.  When Delaware St came to town I scored 4 tickets for $10 total and have totten tickets for around $10/ea for numerous CMU/EMU games.  I was lucky enough to get my company to buy my tickets for tomorrow's game at face and give to a client.  If you are looking to sell tickets and get any offers over $30/each I would jump on it.  If you or someone you know have never been to the Big House, tomorrow would be a great opportunity to catch a game.

Notre Dame, Nebraska, and OSU should be $125 and Eastern and Western should be $25 and SDSU should $40. That way people with conflicts can more easily sell premium games to friends, co-workers.

My family didn't have season tickets while I was growing up, but would receive many free tickets to games such as today's. Those were the games that sparked my rabid fandom. Give your tickets away to people with kids, and it will create lifelong fans.
