    Hawk Fan Freakout On Ticket Prices

    Story I thought worth sharing. Had 2 hillsides for sale on a diff website. Was asking $90 per ticket 180 for both. Had a guy email me offering $25.00 50 for both. I said sorry I cant accept that to which he replied good luck getting that much for them *******. I looked his name up on fb and sure enough he was a hawk fan so I wouldnt have sold them anyway. Isnt that about the going rate for tickets to the ISU IA game or am I way outa line?

    Re: Hawk Fan Freakout On Ticket Prices

    That should be the going rate right now. I wouldn't sell them for under 80, that's for sure.

    Take it easy on him though. It can't be easy trying to get tickets to the game on a burger flipping wage.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Re: Hawk Fan Freakout On Ticket Prices

    I would say $90 is mid-high on the spectrum. Ended up selling mine for cheaper just because I wanted to get rid of them and sell them to a Cyclone fan. But $25 is just a plain lowball, weren't they face value like $50 or something from the athletic department? Good luck getting them half the price of face value AFTER they're sold out.

    Oh yeah, Cool story bro.

    Re: Hawk Fan Freakout On Ticket Prices

    90 is completely in line, though if i had em and was looking to sell i might go $75-80 for a cyclone fan. Cheapest on stubhub is going for over 100, plus i believe you have to add shipping. And there are only a couple available on there. Go past those and your prices quickly go up.

    $25 doesnt even deserve a response.

    I fully anticipate hillside tix on gameday to be going for around $125 and stadium seats no less than $150.

    The tickets are worth what you can get for them. Sounds like hawk fan doesn't want them that bad (which makes sense cause you know, they don't care about ISU).

    And, as always, Drool Story Co.

    What is the going rate at other stadiums around the country that have grass hills for seating?

    Who ******* cares? Hillside tickets for this game are listed at $60, and they are sold out. That means they are adequately priced at $60. Supply and demand (which can be taught in high school) will say that when supply is low, demand increases, as does price.
