Kentucky ticket prices — thoughts?
« on: February 09, 2018, 02:07:45 pm »

I’m looking for three together on the sideline in the lower level as close to the court as possible.

All I can find on stub hub is Section 117 row 3. Note that row 3 is not 3 rows from the court, it’s the second level in the lower bowl — probably 25 rows back or so.

$340/apiece. Do y’all think that sounds about as good as it would get for similar type tickets?

I guess you can expect a little inflation due to the UK name and rivalry factor, but the entertainment value of a game between 2 middle-of-the-pack SEC teams is not worth $340/ea. IMO. I think that's outrageous.

I'm interested in any opinions as well.  I have one lower level ticket to sale and don't know what is a reasonable expectation for the going rate.

I just refused two tickets for free. Still frustrated. I'm guessing you will find some cheaper seats by game time.

Go up to the stadium 1.5 hours before tip and buy some from a scalper. I bet you can find some very similar to the 3rd row ones for about $50-$60 each.

And also, being 10 rows farther back and even closer to the corner isn’t much difference in there. Def not worth a difference of $300

That’s where I’m looking and I don’t see anything at all other than the ones I referenced in the OP.

These are part of a give away for a corporate event so they need to be sideline and near the court.

My question isn’t so much “would you pay this amount” as it is “do you think I can do any better?”

It’s always hard to sell one. You typically have to drop the price significantly just due to the fact that very few people are gonna be lookin my for just one.

If it's a corporate event, just get the tickets and write it off. What you were gonna do anyways probably lol.

Yeah they are actually a donation to a non profit, technically. But I still want to get the best price that I can.

If it is important to get this done and be out ahead of it, you might better secure them. There is very little inventory of premium seats where 3 are available. Lower corners are in the $225-$250. If the intent is high quality seats this might be it. Will something open up closer to game time, sure. But can you wait?

1000 bucks for basketball tickets?  And neither team is ranked in the top 15?  No.  Not doing that.

Someone offer you tickets for free. Tickets valued at a few hundred dollars if you took them and sold them. Yeah that dumb

That's not even considering it was to watch your favorite team play the biggest name on their schedule (not the best team that was the Vols) at home to a packed Bud Walton.

Yeah even if we lose that's dumb

Judging by the # of tickets on stub hub it isnt going to be packed.

As for value, they are only worth what someone is willing to pay.

If you think the UK game won’t be packed at time off you are mistaken

There are way fewer available on stubhub than normal.

Those prices will significantly drop but most of them will be re-sold.

Somebody already paid for those tickets and will want to re-coup what they can.
