Some people think this is the A&M game

Posted: Sep 18, 2019 10:10 AM

Due to my schedule, it is not possible for me to attend all the games, so I no longer buy season tickets. I go to about 4 home and 2 away games each year. I usually either go online or buy them at the game.

I wasn't planning on going on Saturday, but my two teenagers want to go and each take a friend. I said fine, as it is not a big game and there will be plenty of tickets outside to buy. The game isn't a sellout, and you can buy uppers for $40 directly from Clemson.

I thought that I would look on Tigernet and see about finding some lower level tickets, and I don't mind paying face value or a little over for lowers. I immediately got a laugh when I saw what people are asking for tickets! Obviously some people think just because they sold their tickets for significantly over value for A&M that they can get the same for this game. Many of the ads are asking for $100-$150 a ticket! One guy had 5 tickets for $700. I contacted him about paying less, and he stated that if he didn't get $700 that he would rather eat them!

Tickets to events are one of the best indicators of free market enterprise in business. Based upon the game, the market will dictate what the value is. In 2016, I went to FSU and paid $125 a ticket. I went to the game last year and people were giving away tickets. I paid $600 for 3 lowers for A&M-this is what the market dictated. The schools are coming very close to pricing itself out of what people will pay. With all of us having 65 inch TVs, many people are chosing not to go to the games. As big as the Alabama game was last week for SC, it was not a sellout at game time.

If you would rather eat your tickets instead of selling them at a reasonable price, that is your choice. But that leaves empty seats in the stands and takes away from the atmosphere at the game. Clemson wants as many people there, as each person is going to spend money on food/souvenirs, etc. Therefore, I hope people will be more reasonable with their tickets that they don't want to use so that more people can attend the game.

I don't think anyone is confusing Texas A&M with

UNCC. They are two different schools and two very different football programs. HTH.

So I understand the attempt to recoup as much as possible. It isn't realistic in the market as you stated though.

on tigernet sometimes. Used to be a good resource but now its just a resources for spending 40% more for tickets. Stubhub is good for face value tickets except you gotta pay the fees. Only buy there if you find a good seat. Otherwise just go the stadium an hour before kickoff and i'm sure you'll find more than your fair share of tickets available. I bet you can get 4 for $100. Most people don't want to wait around and sell tickets when there are 50 other sellers out there. And have fun with it. Most folks are level headed and understand 25 bucks is better than 0.
