    Week 1 - Pitt - Tickets?



    Myself, Irishraven and another friend are making the trip over form Ireland for the season opener. It will be my much anticipated first game at M&T!

    Wondering where would be best to pick up three tickets? Online or through a season ticket holder?

    Any help is much appreciated!

    you can find them online but they are marked up considerably. My seats are 60 face and they are up for 200 for seats in my section on the ticket exchange. Hopefully someone here can help you out.

    Very doubtful that you'd find any tickets close to face value tix for the Steelers game, James. While it's one of the best games to attend, it's also the one in the highest demand -- if the stadium held 100,000, it would fill up for this game. Some people use this game to finance a large portion of their season ticket costs by scalping the tickets at very high prices.

    It's a very longshot, but I may have three available on Sept 11th; if so, you can have them at cost (about $80 IIRC). My son gets married Sept 10th evening and it's possible that, of my long list of relatives and friends who have asked for Steelers game tix before, perhaps no one wants them due to the late hour of the reception. My waiting list of friends and relatives (over a decade old) would get first dibs, but, since you are being accompanied by my Irish friend who entertained us so well at Dublin's Temple Bar a few years ago, I'll check out what is the demand over the next few weeks -- however, if you see tickets for 150% of face value, pounce on them.

    It will take a few weeks before I'll be able to give you an answer. We normally don't get into which family member or friends gets our original upper deck seats until the week or two prior to each game. Pull the trigger if you see reasonably (over) priced tix elsewhere because I may not be able to deliver -- remember, I don't ordinarily sell my Ravens tix, but would make an exception for Irish friends.

    The price is the ticket price to me: $75 to $80 range, IIRC.

    I was there that night in Temple Bar too

    Thanks for the advice and the ticket offer. We're looking at getting somewhere around the 200/100's near the endzone corner. Tickets for section 119 are listed at around $300. We might just jump on some now to ensure we get decent seats.

    Is it worth hanging on to try get single game tickets from ticketmaster when the go on sale next week?

    To save hundreds of dollars: absolutely. Even though your chances are <1%. Be prepared to break your group up. I'll put in for extras for you when the PSL owners get 1st crack at singles later this week. Still <1%.

    Suggestion: aim high, at least upper or lower sidelines, even club seats. You may find less competition than ohers going for cheaper seats. I believe that, for most games, one can buy scalped club seats for only a few bucks more than lower deck seats. There's a huge difference in what you get for your money in the club section.

    the only differance I see is you pay 2-3 times as much for club seats and all you get is the option to go into the AC/Heat if you need it, an escalater, and snobby fans that look at you weird if you stand up and cheer the entire game.

    Thanks Mista T, I'll do that so. So what area would be worth trying first to maximize our chances of grabbing 3 Round the 100's or 200's?. We're still willing to pay up to 300 dollars per seat.

    My dad and I have our two season tix in section 125, front 20 rows, and I wouldn't sell them for less than $600 if I were selling them. Which I'm not.

    Sorry dude, I think you're gonna pay a ton for these seats. After a quick look around, I can't see anything cheaper than $125 per seat, and those are the upper end zone.

    Tickets for the Steelers game are always at a premium. This year the Steelers game is on OPENING DAY. Talk about a double whammy..

    The Jets game tickets are going to tough to find as well, especially if we both get off to 2-1 or 3-0 starts...

    I'm planning on looking on ticketmaster a few days before the game.. Usually a few tickets open up.
