Looking to buy tickets for 1 game


Recommended Posts

So I live about a nine hour drive from the stadium here in Canada, but I would like to start coming down to one game a year if I could.  What would be the best way to find tickets at face value or close to it?  Do any of you sell a ticket on a yearly basis?

Just trying to get an idea of how much it would cost to come to a game on a yearly basis.

Stubhub or NFL ticket exchange are your best bets.  I also think the site has a partnership with a reputable ticket agency, but I will let @Maxman speak to that. 

Pricing depends on where you would like to sit. Tickets for approximately $50, (but can go as high as approximately $100 for face value) are pretty much always available in the Upper Deck.  In the mezzanine and lower level you are looking at ticket prices starting at $130 (which is face value). 

You can always find tickets under face value in the lower levels though, you just have to look for them.

How many of there are you?  Frankly, if it's just 2 of you, I would just drive to the stadium and pick up tickets in the parking lot from fans who have extras. If you're not afraid of that, or whatever, you can get a tremendous deal on great seats. Much better than wasting money on stubhub.

I wouldn't recommend that personally. Everything is electronic these days. There are a lot less tickets floating around the parking lot these days. No way would I risk that especially when you are coming from Canada.

I have a few extra lower level seats (should have 3) for the Jets \ Seahawks game. Not sure when you are coming in.

It's not a risk if you have a shred of discretion or common sense.  Tickets at a Jets game are so incredibly incredibly easy to come by in the parking lot, for dirt cheap. If I didn't go to games with a group of 6, I would absolutely not have season tickets and get tickets this way every single week.

Can you please elaborate? I am not a STH but I go to 3-4 games every year with friends. We buy our tickets thru stubhub. When we go, we are at the lot at 8:30 AM and we tailgate until around 12:30 PM every time. We tailgate at D8, D10, D12 etc all the time. For the past 2 years, I don't remember anybody offering dirt cheap tickets at the lot. If this is so easy to do, please tell us the secret so we don't end up paying close to face or face.

That is great. I have gone to every game for the past 100 years and I am telling you that:

1) Driving from another country without tickets involves some element of risk

2) Not everyone is worried about saving $20, having tickets in your pocket when driving to the U.S. is important to some people

I have common sense. Sometimes there are popular games, it happens. Thanks.

Step One: Apparently you need common sense? Do you have that? Just checking lol. :)

Lol if you've gone to every game for 100 years, I've gone for 99, and I'm telling you that:

Scoring tickets in the parking lot at MetLife Stadium is a better bet than a Jets pre-season division title. I asked OP whether he's looking for 1 or 2 or for multiple, because if he's only looking for 1 or 2--as long as it's not the Patriots game-- there is virtually no risk.  And you forgot a "0" on the amount of money that could be saved, easily.

Sure. How many guys do you go with? 

The first step is to eliminate the word "scalper" from your lexicon (not sure who if this is who you're asking about, anyway). Everytime I pick up tickets in the parking lot, whether it's at a Jets game, Devils, Yankees, etc., I don't even talk to scalpers. Regular folks with extra tickets, only.

Getting there early and tailgating as you do gives you a nice advantage... all you need to do really is walk around the lot and mingle with other tailgaters, and ask who has extra tickets. And, despite the fact that it's more stressful, the closer you get to gametime, the cheaper the tickets are, of course.

That is great. Not everyone is that concerned about saving a few dollars on a once a year event. And there is risk because you don't control where you sit. And that is also important to some people. But what do I know I am not even sure if I have common sense.

Hopefully you bought a parking pass online before getting to the bolded part.

Since you need to be a parking pass online I am with the 99.99% of the rest of the world that says ah, let me buy the tickets while I am here. So I don't have to deal with it on game day.

But again I have had season tickets forever so if I had to walk around the parking lot talking to people I would probably be escorted out by security.

Never said you didn't have common sense. Was saying (pretty clearly actually) that common sense makes scoring tickets in the parking lot very easy. What I'll also say now, is that you get defensive really, really easily.

OP asked for opinions on tickets, and I gave mine. Sorry if it conflicts with yours.  No need to be a baby.

I'm sure you have common sense, but you're pretty bad at reading posts in context apparently.

I have run a message board that is one of the largest in the NFL for over 10 years, you don't last that long by being a baby.

Also, I know you are but what am I?

And since we are sharing, you are pretty bad at reading ball busting.

Damn. Wish I'd seen this before I bought mine. Ah well, I'm used to the highest row in the place anyways. :lol:

You going to the the Hawks game?  I need to get to a game this year and would love this one.  Need a couple of tickets, tho.  But it seems like yesterday we were both at one! haha

I would not recommend nfl ticket exchange they kill you with fees. Score big is a nice new site with no fees
