View Full Version : Looking to purchase 4 tickets for Dec 3 game vs scubs (bucs)

I live in the Tampa area and since I've been unable to get tickets to the season opener, I'm hoping someone would be willing to sale me 4 tickets to the Dec 3 game vs the scubs. I know I could purchase them online but I'm really not interested in paying those high prices!!!!
It would be great to get back to Da 'Burgh for a game this year and then return here to all the scubs fans wearing the Black and Gold!!!
I know a guy who has 2 in Section 520 Row B (those are great seats) he wants 150 apiece.

Thanks, I think I've found my tickets (for a bit cheaper)
If you look around you can get them cheaper!~ I just know of this guy who has 2 for sale for whatever price he said and wanted to let you know!~ have a ball at the game!~

Thanks, I appreciate you looking out for me. I've been looking for awhile and since people want outrageous prices for the opener, I took the next best thing I could get....go to Da' Burgh and watch the caddie hit a Steel Curtain!!
Then come back to Tampa, sporting either my Roethlisberger, Troy, or Hines jersey!
Ticket prices are out of sight for all the games. Kinda sad when you think about it because Steeler fans are gouging other Steeler fans and that is what it comes down to. You can blame brokers but........where did they get their tickets? From Steeler fans that is where.

I got them from a Steelers fan for $100 a pop. It's the best I could do and since I couldn't get tickets to the Monday nighter in Jax, I had to take what I could get before I missed my weekend trip.
I've vowed that once I come off the waiting list, I'm going to sell my tickets at face value (only to Steelers fans).
I am with you!~ A Steeler fan sold me a parking pass for 80 bucks in Gold Lot 1and that is cheap but I know it cost him a whole lot less. I bought it off a website and I know he had to pay them but still, he made money. I guess that is what America is all about, right...........:bouncy:

That's what America is about but it's not what the foundation of this country was built on. It's a shame that people think they have to charge and arm and a leg for a ticket and then request some other body part for the parking pass. I'm hoping I can convince someone to sell me a parking pass for the bucs game but at face value.
What website did you get your parking pass?

I think the best strategy for getting tickets at a reasonable price is to show up at the stadium on gameday with some cash and "work the room." At Heinz Field, I've generally found the game day market to be much more buyer friendly than the advance market.
Think about this, there's only about 7 teams that aren't (or don't claim to be) sold out for the season. That's not a lot of face value seats out there to be had at the box office. Some of its speculative (like buying a condo in vegas).
The bargain game this season is going to be at Oakland where tickets can be had for about $60 and up. You can consistently get in the gate at Jacksonville for about $100 per. At Heinz Field just about every game is consistently selling for more than $150. You're softest games are going to be New Orleans and Tampa Bay.
The prices are outrageous -- but the upside is it's actually much easier to find tickets in advance if you want them. I'm a huge fan, I don't have tickets, but I'd be tempted to sell 'em to every game this season since their getting 3x. I could get the flat screen and the HD service.
