The NFL ticket exchange is touted as the place to buy NFL tickets on the internet. But a careful comparison of ticket prices will show that sports ticket brokers actually have cheaper prices for football tickets than the exchange which is run by Ticketmaster. And that’s because of where most of the tickets posted on the NFL Ticket Exchange come from.
For the most part the tickets listed on the NFL Ticket Exchange are from ticket brokers that upload their inventory and the NFL and Ticketmaster just add fees on top of the broker’s price. This can dramatically raise the price of NFL tickets on the Ticketmaster website over the price of what the sports ticket brokers are charging for the exact same seats.
You can’t miss the ticket exchange if you try to buy NFL tickets on Ticketmaster for a sold out game. But once you proceed to purchase the tickets you get hit with an extra fee. As an example, if you check on two tickets for the 49ers vs Eagles game on Sunday October 10th at Candlestick Park on the exchange you find seats in section LB 14 Row B showing at $261 per seat are actually $300.15 per seat with the extra fee’s.
The exact same seats for the 49ers Eagles game at Preferred Seating Tickets are showing at $274 per ticket, a savings of $104.60! By going through a sports ticket broker you are eliminating the middle men, the NFL and Ticketmaster, who are nothing less than ticket brokers themselves these days. They just charge more and they have the advertising budget to keep the general public from finding a cheaper alternative to Ticketmaster for NFL tickets.
If you want to save money on your next purchase of NFL tickets check with Preferred Seating Tickets and compare their prices with those at the NFL Ticket Exchange and you’ll find that the extra service fees from the NFL and Ticketmaster jack the price of that ticket well above those at Preferred Seating.
And you’ll also be supporting another small business rather than all the shareholders at Ticketmaster while you’re saving money at the same time.
