Finding Sports Tickets
There's just something much more exciting about hearing the crack of a baseball against a bat in person instead of watching it on TV, or hearing the crowd come to its feet after a touchdown at a major league football game. Though sports tickets aren't always affordable, you can find them on eBay for special prices and treat yourself, family, and friends to an event they'll never forget while supporting your favorite teams.
What Are Some Venues to Visit?
Though you are able to find sports tickets for every venue across the country, there are some that stand out that you may want to visit. Here are some well-known sports venues you could go to and see a memorable game.
- Dodger Stadium, home of the Los Angeles Dodgers, is a beloved baseball venue that has been visited by millions of Dodgers fans since its creation in 1962. It houses over 50,000 fans at a time, and you can take a tour of this famous stadium when you visit.
- When you're a New York Yankees fan, Yankee Stadium is the only place to be. Located in the Bronx area of New York, this iconic stadium opened in 1923 but was then renovated and reopened in 2009.
- For football fans, the mecca for Dallas Cowboys fans is Cowboys Stadium, a giant sports complex located in Arlington, Texas. Renamed AT&T Stadium, the complex can fit 80,000 people, making it one of the largest in the country.
How Do You Buy Sports Tickets?
So you're ready to go cheer on your favorite team, but looking at tickets can be slightly confusing. How do you go about purchasing the tickets you want? Here are a few ways you can get the tickets you're seeking.
- Purchase a package deal. This means that for a lower price, you can buy a four-pack, six-pack, or even eight-pack of tickets that may be cheaper than buying single seats or even two seats. If you're planning to bring a group of people, purchasing more tickets could result in deeper discounts.
- Buy season passes when you know you don't want to miss a single game this season. Purchasing season tickets means you typically get the same seats for each game, and this can mean you get a much lower discount than picking and choosing games to go to.
- You may get either hard tickets, which are printed tickets mailed to you, or e-tickets, which you can show at the stadium and can be scanned electronically, as they're delivered to your email.
What Extras Could You Get With Tickets?
So you are excited about seeing your favorite team play, but what else can you get for your money? Here are some things you could look for when buying tickets that could make the cost of your seats just a little more appealing, and may make your dollar go a bit further.
- Parking is always something nobody wants to deal with at any event. It's typically expensive and crowded when you get to events, so you could search for tickets that include prepaid parking, upgraded parking, VIP parking, or the ability to park before other fans do.
- Watch your favorite team prepare for the upcoming season by scoring training tickets. Separate from actual game tickets, training tickets are a way to watch your team get into fighting shape for the season. It's a fun way for diehard fans to connect with their favorite teams.
- Nab tickets that come with an extra VIP pass to get you behind the scenes to meet players, onto the green to shake your favorite golfer's hand, or as close to the field as possible, or allow you to get to the event early to watch players warm up before the game and maybe even grab an autograph if you're lucky.
