Now that the college bowl teams have been announced fans that are looking to travel to the games to support their teams need to be very careful where they buy their 2011 college bowl tickets. Of course the first and safest place to buy bowl tickets will be through the team school. The next best source for guaranteed college bowl tickets is from the ticket service PreferrredSeat.com.
The team schools will have a limited number of tickets for the bowl games and for games such as the 2011 BCS National Championship Game and Rose Bowl games to name a few, it can be extremely hard just to get a ticket. When the Rose Bowl tickets went on sale today from Ticketmaster for the Wisconsin vs. TCU game, fans were lucky to even get a single ticket since it appeared they were sold out right at 10:00.
College football fans that want to avoid the Wisonsin Rose Bowl ticket problems would be smart to check out the company they are buying 2011 bowl game tickets from. Thousands of Wisconsin fans were stuck at the gate with bad Rose Bowl tickets and went back to Wisconsin fuming in 1994.
The best choice is to try a reputable ticket company that has been in business for years if to avoid ruining your travel plans buying bad college bowl tickets. Also check with the Better Business Bureau, but don’t just check the rating, check the complaints as well because the ratings don’t always tell the complete story.
And check the college bowl game ticket prices carefully. Most ticket brokers selling college bowl tickets are adding a service fee to the order, only after you choose the shipping method. They do this to confuse the buyer into thinking their ticket prices are cheaper. But with the added fees you will find you are paying much more than PreferredSeat.com, where they don’t add any hidden fees to their college bowl game tickets.
The most expensive college bowl games are the 2011 BCS National Championship Game and the 2011 Rose Bowl game. The rest of the BCS games including the Cotton Bowl, Sugar Bowl, Orange Bowl and Fiesta Bowl are still pretty expensive, but affordable.
This isn’t the local football game for any of the fans attending these college bowl games so it’s even more important to be safe and choose a reliable ticket service so you don’t get denied entry at the door after a long trip, and a great deal of expense. And most ticket sellers won’t tell you but there are laws in several states regulating the sale of tickets to events such as Rose Bowl tickets.
In California if a ticket buyer gets denied entry at the door because of a problem with the ticket, the seller may be liable for up to two times the cost of the ticket. Good to know, but bad to experience. This law was a direct result of the Wisconsin Rose Bowl ticket fiasco.
