Nothing wrong with giving game tickets away to young men or women that other wise wouldn't get a chance to go to a game.

Looking at ticketmaster, Quite a few tickets were sold today, however there are still tones available. Maybe 20 000 still available.

Maybe 10,000 have sold and almost all of those in the 3 cheapest sections in the upper deck.  Not surprisingly, the $330 - $380 tickets from the 10 yard lines to the back corner of the endzone in the 4 corners have barely been touched.  Expect them to remain largely unsold unless the promoter comes to his senses and reduces them by at least a hundred.

Heavily hyped events usual rely on the majority of their tickets being sold in the first few days or pre-sale and sale to the general public.  Given they have only sold 10,000 or a small percentage of the most expensive tickets actually spoken for, the promoter and Wade are probably a little worried at this point.

When looking at how many tickets have sold, remember that the pinacle club seats never became available on Ticket Master. So it isn't as if the average person bout those (which account for many of the tickets "sold"

I purchased tickets the moment they went on sale. Every section was available.

It's hard to know how many tickets are actually sold as the NFL, the two teams and sponsors also have reserved ticket areas that make not sell.

That is good.  More exposure for Canada and CFL  via the NFL

Looks like ticket sales are well below expectation.

Head over to Ticket Master and see all the seats still available: https://www1.ticketmaster.ca/event/110056BCE5604DAF

$330 for my favorite IGF seats -- 200-level midfield nosebleeds -- is waaaay too much.  They've only sold a few dozen of those.

However, they are doing really well selling the top-price 100-level midfield, and the cheap corners.  When I first hit the site it popped up saying prices may change at any time, meaning they may be hedging their bets and dropping the price as the game gets closer.  The $192 seats seem to be the best deal in terms of view vs price; that's what I got.

If I wasn't going with my dad & friends (i.e. need to preplan), I'd wait until gameday, 2 hours before, and snap up a stubhub deal which will probably end up being 1/4 the face value.  Better yet, watch the prices, as long as tickets are left, get to IGF, and buy the most discounted ticket when I'm standing at the gate.  People get desperate in the last hour.  Only works when there are lots of tickets listed though.

I have notice that to become more standard with Ticket Master, so it isn't event specific.

Looks like this event is going to need a lot of give-away tickets to get people in the stands.

Prices are crazy...just absolutely crazy.  I was originally so pissed that the Riders screwed up the chance for the game to be in Regina.  Been a lifetime Raiders fan...and Green Bay is my 2nd favorite team.  I've never seen Green Bay play ion person but I have gone to numerous Raider games. 

But with that...I would not buy tickets at that price...not for an exhibition game.  I may have tried for the cheap seats...

If you couldn't get me paying for prime seats...or close to prime seats....not sure how they expect other people to.
