5 Ways To Buy Sporting Event Tickets

Aug 17, 2007
Everyone knows it just is not quite the same to watch a game from home as opposed to having sports tickets. There is nothing more exciting than being in an excited atmosphere with the crowd roaring watching the best athletes in the world perform to their fullest. Having sports tickets allows you to get the full experience while watching the game first hand. Here are 5 ways you can go about getting sporting event tickets.

1. Online
There are hundreds of websites that sell sporting event tickets of all kinds. Many times if you go to the website of the team you want to see, there is a link on their website to purchase tickets for the game you want to see. This way you can view their entire schedule and select the games that you want to purchase tickets for.

2. Grocery stores or ticket stores
Many grocery stores sell sports tickets to the home town teams for the major sports. You can usually find tickets to football, basketball, baseball and sometimes hockey or soccer tickets at grocery stores. They also have a layout of the stadium or arena to allow you to choose the seats you want. Then there is also the obvious choice of going to a ticket store such as Ticketmaster to purchase your tickets.

3. Go to the stadium
Going to the stadium to purchase your sporting event tickets depends on the situation and the team you are seeing. If it is an anticipated match between two teams, odds are the tickets will already be sold out the day of the game. If the team you want to see is one of the best in its sport, sometimes their games are sold out far in advance. This makes it somewhat risky to purchase sports tickets at the stadium, but it is certainly another option.

4. Scalpers
This is by far the most risky way to purchase sporting event tickets, but at times can be the easiest and cheapest way to get them. If you wait until the day of the game to buy the tickets from scalpers, sometimes you will be able to get them cheaper than face value because of the scalpers need to get rid of them. However, if the game is a much anticipated one the tickets probably will be raised above face value. It is also becoming more common to find counterfeit tickets from scalpers, which leaves you with less money in the pocket and no tickets to get into the game.

5. Friends and Family
The last way you may want to consider to get sports tickets is through family, friends, or co-workers. Ask around and you may find a friend that has season tickets that is willing to give them up for a game.

Being at the ballpark or the stadium is an experience everyone should encounter at some point in their life. Purchasing sports tickets vary in price depending on the game and who is playing, but it is worth the price. There are thousands of places to find sporting event tickets and with a little effort you should have no problem finding the seats that you want.
