Why Use A Ticket Broker?

Legal, licensed ticket brokers provide a safe, secure way to buy tickets at market value. It's much safer to buy tickets from a licensed broker than to buy tickets on the street or through an internet auction or classified ad website. Tickets available through such websites are sometimes counterfeit, stolen, or being sold illegally. Ticket Brokers, on the other hand, are licensed, legal, and most conform to the NATB Code of Ethics.

Understanding the Ticket Market

The good seats are usually gone before the public sale begins. Fan club and presale events, radio station giveaways, tickets for sponsors, and tickets belonging to season ticket holders account for a sizable portion of the most desirable tickets at many sports, theatre, and music events. Some tickets are never available in a general public sale, and can only be purchased through a lottery. For example, Super Bowl tickets are not sold by ticket agents, and can only be obtained through a random drawing. Ticket brokers buy tickets from individuals, then sell them on the secondary market. For less popular events, ticket brokers often take a loss on tickets they're unable to re-sell above face value. It's possible to purchase tickets from a broker for less than face value!
