Philadelphia Eagles fans are not happy with TicketMaster. Tickets for the upcoming NFC Championship games went on sale this week, and many reported issues with the purchasing process.
Those problems included long wait times and insane resale prices, leading many to post their reactions online.
This ticket is a hot commodity. In fact, it’s been reported that the Eagles-49ers matchup will be the most expensive conference title game in NFL history.
The demand for the game is sky-high, so when Philadelphia released their allotment of tickets, there was a long line of customers. Many claimed wait times of at least two hours only to see high-priced resale options available upon leaving the queue.
Now, the cheapest seats you’ll find fall in the $500-$600 range. Eagles fans were quick to comment on the TicketMaster purchasing process after the fact.
One Philly fan wrote, “After 40 minutes of waiting, I got in and it was entirely sold out with only resale tickets available. Standing room only was $600+.”
Another supporter had a similar experience, posting, “It took 1 hour and 15 minutes to get through the Eagles Ticketmaster queue to find out there are only resale tickets available at absurd prices, unreal.”
This Eagles fan isn’t sure there were even face value tickets released, saying, “TicketMaster is a joke. Let’s be real were there any face value tickets for sale at 10am…”
It’s not the first time we’ve seen this with major events on the TicketMaster site, but that doesn’t make it any less frustrating for buyers.
Those that are able to find tickets will get to see two of the NFL’s top teams face off on Sunday. As it stands, the Eagles are listed as a slight favorite over the Niners, who’ve won 12 straight games.
The winner of that matchup will head to the Super Bowl, where you can expect ticket prices to be even higher.
