Tips for buying Super Bowl Tickets for the February 6, 2011 Game in Arlington, Texas.
The Super Bowl is the largest single day sporting event in the United States. If you're an NFL Football fan, come to think of it, even you're not, this is one game you must attend at least once in your lifetime. If planning to attend an upcoming Super Bowl game, take these tips into consideration and you'll have an incredible time.
There are many different ways to find Super Bowl tickets, online sources, NFL Lottery, classified sites etc. The online sources are made up primarily of exchanges and databases shared by ticket brokers, season ticket holders and other ticket sources. The same tickets may show up on may different sites that are selling Superbowl Tickets, the difference will be the additional fees associated with the transaction. You can expect to pay between ,750 and ,000 per ticket depending on how good you prefer your seats.
We recommend finding a real Sports Ticket Broker that has been in business for many years and that you can call on the phone to discuss your purchase. Ticket brokers gain access to their Super Bowl tickets in many ways but primarily from corporate sponsors, season ticket holders etc. They will be able to find you the best seats in your price range and collect payment using a credit card or PayPal, then send the tickets quickly using Federal Express shipping. Be sure to speak to your broker on the phone, ask them how long they have been in business. Pay by credit card and request your tickets to be sent via Fed Ex.
If you happen to find good seats at a decent price on EBAY, be careful, only buy from sellers who are Power Sellers or have plenty of good feedback. Ebay has been known for a decent amount of fraud around Super Bowl Ticket buying season.
We do not recommend paying cash for tickets, NFL Fans who pay cash for their tickets have no way of tracking their money. If you pay by cash for tickets that later turn out to be counterfeit or stolen, there is no way to track down the scam artist.
We do not recommend buying Superbowl tickets on Craigslist or any classified website. These sites have an extremely high fraud rate for Super Bowl. Most of the fraud listings require buyers to wire transfer funds which is one thing you do not want to do because there is no protection if the sale goes bad. Stay away from these types of listings as these transactions are not protected.
We do recommend verifying tickets always. Super Bowl tickets contain anti-counterfeit features, including thermographic ink which causes certain areas of the ticket to disappear in response to body heat created by human touch, all tickets also contain a hologram. Look for these features when you receive your tickets.
