Yesterday the Sixers announced that they had sold 14,000 season tickets and lead the league in new season ticket sales. I figured I’d check to see what was left available for full season ticket packages. As you can see, NOT MUCH!
They are presumably holding some back for small packages. Reader (@ChrisOteri) points out that he was able to call his rep and get a partial plan yesterday. But it looks like the Sixers are now poised to take full advantage of their StubHub partnership. Since all of their single-game tickets are sold through the secondary market, it is impossible to tell which tickets on the site come from them and which come from regular fans and ticket holders. And we have no idea how many tickets the Sixers are holding back for those sales.
Regardless of the process, the end result is that the days of cheap StubHub tickets are likely over. With the team expecting a sellout every game and having sold 75% of the building just on season tickets alone, don’t expect too many bargains on the secondary market, including from season ticket holders looking to unload theirs (I suspect the Sixers have a pretty advanced system for weeding out scalpers from their customer base). In fact, I’d expect very, very expensive tickets on StubHub. That sound you here is Joshua Harris building another yacht, and then a moat in which to store the yacht, accessible by custom helipad, on Mars.
