Anyone else have some issues with buying Grey Cup tickets today? I'm gonna vent a bit ..... :x
The $15 ticketmaster surcharge on each ticket is astronomical. I bought a couple of extra youth $10 tickets for the first game at Ivor Wynne this year. The Grey Cup surcharge and taxes alone totalled $68.12 on my $399 "double blue" tickets! Multiply that by 3 and I could have bought a couple more season tickets in the end zone.
I also went in first thing at 12:00 noon, and with some super high speed internet and a ticketmaster account all set up in advance, I was in a great position for some great seats. I needed 3. The problem was the ticketmaster system gave me 3 individual seats in different rows in one section, on my first login attempt. By the time I backed out to refresh and try and get 3 together, I was on the other side of the stadium in the next level. Not good for spending more than $1,400!!!
There had to be a better way ...
I'm hoping and trusting that the festival tickets will have a better system.
Anyways, I'm looking forward to the Ti-Cats hosting as the Eastern champions this year. I'll see you in Rogers Centre, section 237, at the Cup! Got 10 rooms booked at the Hilton for a big group coming from London this year!
