Why are there so many Natty Tix for sale?


Posted: Jan 1, 2019 6:30 PM
 

Did people honestly think they could sell these tickets for a profit?


Everybody remembers Tampa

so the answer is yes, they thought it and many will be right

Tickets in the same section as my IPTAY seats are selling for about 1/2 what I’ll be paying. I’m nauseous.

In our case, we had 4 family members back out. I’m sure there are a lot of people like us - people tell them “h3ll yea I’ll go!” and then we win and it’s like “oh wait, you’re serious? California?!”

So yea, that sucks.


Learned My lesson a few years ago - I get the money up front

before I send in request -- then refund if we don't go -- otherwise they can order their own

Not trying to make any money off of the tickets when I ordered. Just thought my crew would all go.

Learned my lesson. I will pay market value for tickets outside of IPTAY from now on.

Wonder if IPTAY will give those of us who paid full ticket prices will get more points as a reward? Probably not - just wishful thinking. lol

GO TIGERS!

Yeah Tampa was just the perfect storm to sell tickets high cause it was such an easy drive for everyone to get to and the stadium only held like 70k this game will be like arizona you can get in for 50.00

Let me see. Two teams from the southeast playing in Northern California. Airfare expensive. Hotels expensive. The two school fan bases have played in a combined 13 playoff games in the last 4 years, in addition to 7 conference championship games. People are tapped out - both Bama and Clemson. Do I need to go on?

Re-sell. Tampa is on their mind.


Re: opportunist?


Posted: Jan 1, 2019 9:00 PM
 

What else would you call buying something you don’t need in hopes of selling it for a quick profit? Seems like the very definition of opportunistic.

Everyone knew where the game was gonna be played.


Posted: Jan 1, 2019 7:11 PM
 

Tickets are selling for 1/3 face value in some places.

I just don't get why so many fans purchased knowing the game was in Cali if they knew they couldn't go

eating $500-$700 tickets doesn't digest easily.

There's some folks gonna learn a hard lesson here.

I love people being greedy and losing their a s s. I’ve had to put up with visiting fans all around me for 3 straight playoff games and I’m sick of it.

I decided to buy a car recently, so I'm trying to be responsible and not shell out even more money on transportation, lol. Though I do think this game is about to be EPIC.

Really poor research by people. Schools alot much more tix

for Natty than Bowl games due to the corporate stuff with bowls.

And, prices for phx were well below face value and that was our first Natty in 30 years.

Why would anyone think they could turn a profit for Cali? Just really surprised seeing so many for sell.

I assumed nobody would really purchase and would just wait on market prices for this one.

Some people don’t understand supply and demand well.

2019 white level memberbadge-donor-10yr.jpg

several reasons

[4]
Posted: Jan 1, 2019 7:50 PM
 

1.After the last two years, the market started much too high. So, very few buyers the last 12 months compared to most years.

2. California - Northern CA on a Monday night at 5 PM. Worst location and time possible. Christmas in Hawaii might be better.

3. Only chance to be face was ND, WA, USC.

4. Worst team for ticket sales. Bama is done. You can't only take so many trips of a lifetime. They still have about 8000 tickets to sell and will try to sell on Stubhub. This market is going a lot lower than it is now.

5. After Tampa, the playoff committee cut a deal to sell 12,000 or so tickets to a broker in FL. The broker knows nothing about college football but got lucky with the matchup. This year, that broker should have been selling thousands at face or a little over but they didn't. They have at least 10,000 left to sell.

Going to the game for free will be very easy. Any Tiger fan who can should get to California. I plan to sit on the 50 in Club seats for free along with friends.


Those reasons are why I'm surprised Clemson people are selling.***

Just looked at Stubhub and tix currently available as low as $212. I looked at tix back in August and the prices weren't even that low, then they tripled by November. A lot of people going to lose money on this one. If it wasn't a week trip to drive, I would show up game day and get great tickets for less $100.

People going to lose serious money on these unfortunately. Maybe it will cause some to go when they realize their $600-$700 tickets aren’t going to sell for more than $100-$200. I didn’t buy through iptay this time bc I remember Phoenix was cheap and that was our first time.

Yeah, just shocked so many iptay Tix were sold and so many extras

are available in the iptay sections from fans who purchased thru iptay.

I would've thought people would have known better than to pay $600 for this ticket.

I've been looking for club seats and it looks like Clemson only got end zone seats from the tickets listed in Tigernet. I've already booked my flight so I'm going. Now just waiting for rock bottom on the tickets. I think there's still a way to go as more tickets get listed.

It's 3,000 miles away in CA. Might as well be in Alaska or Australia.

Most people can't afford to drop $2-3 grand per person on the trip.

Ticketmaster, StubHub & the other monopolies controlling entertainment worldwide are the essence of greed & corruption.

This is THE rainy season in San Fran area - January. Darn good chance you're sitting in the rain. Great job picking THIS outdoor venue! Dumbells did this - or got paid off - one or the other.

Too many stinking bowls. 40?? About 36 of them were so poorly attended it was embarrassing. Even the Gator was maybe 20-25% full. Aside from the bank-busting cost, there's nothing special about 80 teams going to bowls (unless it's the playoffs) - but the cost has GOT to be reduced or it's about over.

Have you been there lately? I was there in the late summer. Horrible place. Darn if I’m exposing my family to the nastiness I experienced there.

And yes, we went to Phoenix and Tampa.
