I regularly am checking the prices of off-market tickets for Redskins, Caps, and Nats (not so much Wizards since people seriously give those tickets away to me). Haggling with scalpers is something I thoroughly enjoy doing, so I was curious to see what effect the removal of approximately 8,000 seats at Fedex Field does. I need to buy 4 tickets for friends by Sunday. So....
Our own TiqIQ ticket site shows tickets are available for sale ranging on the cheap side for $54 (upper deck and club-level party deck) to $80 (lower bowl) for end zone views. Not too shabby of a value there. As I saw first hand last year, there are fake tickets out there from scalpers, so beware. Last year they were always in the form of club-level game day tickets, which had no built in security. The lower and upper bowl tickets were always the larger tickets with a player on the front. Craigslist has literally hundreds of tickets for sale, which tells me people will have a very hard time getting rid of them. In other words, I'm going to revisit the ticket pages early Sunday morning.
Oh yea, it's also the last chance to win $200 worth of tickets to a game of your choice in the TiqIQ NFL Kickoff contest. Simply "Like" our Tickets Facebook page and then predict the following for the week 1 game versus the NY Giants on the FB page:
- Give the Final score of the 1st game, and winner
- Who will score the 1st TD in the game
- Yards for the 1st TD
