    Buying a large quantity of football tickets

    Quick question for those of you more experienced than I. I've only bought student tickets at ISU. I have a group of 14-20 people who will be coming for the Texas Tech game, and we want to sit together.

    Regular tickets go on sale Sept 5. If you've ordered before, I want to know how difficult this is to undertake. Is there a limit of how many tickets you can buy? Is it impossible to find a cluster of 20 online? Should I call? Are they flooded with requests the second tickets go on sale? (and what time is that? 8am?).

    Just wanting to know what to expect from the craziness a month from now. Thanks everyone :)

    Call the ticket office. They will try to put you together, may not be the best seats. Orders of 100 or more get a price break I believe.

    They need to drop that down to around 20 like every other place in the world. Hell most places start discounting at 10. If you need to buy 38-99 tickets to a game, it would be cheaper to buy 100 (Tulsa and WIU). It starts at 39 for the conference games.

    I'm actually kinda flabbergasted that they would think that 100+ deserves a discount but not 20+? How many groups are actually that large to have 100+?


    My teams: (as of 6/15/14)
    Cleveland Browns: 4-12 - .250
    Cleveland Indians: 34-35 - .493
    Cleveland Cavs: 33-49 - .402
    Iowa State Cyclones (FB): 3-9 - .250
    Iowa State Cyclones (BB): 28-8 - .778

    Something I find helpful to do when I have a question about Cyclones Tickets is to go to Cyclones.com and click on Tickets.

    Well at least it took 3 responses before the snark.

    I did go there. Checking back, the only thing I missed was that the ticket office was open at 8.

    What it didn't tell you was if there was a limit on how many tickets one person could purchase, and what the experience is like ordering online vs on the phone. I thought it'd be nice to hear if the website has a history of crashing at 8am on the day they go on sale, if the phone lines are so busy you can't get through for hours, etc. I have ~20 people counting on me and people on this board have experienced everything.

    Adding you to my ignore list for being a jerk.

    I haven't done this, but I'd be curious to hear how your experience goes after you hear from the ticket office.

    Well the Snark experience was a little off since it didn't include a Meme about aliens, dead horses or who your base belong to (it's Us by the way). Good luck on the tickets.

    I would assume scalpers have a lot to do with that. 20 would be right in their range for most games. Requiring 100 is more likely to be a group or organization that you would typically want to give a discount to.
