The Kennel Club: Tickets To See Top-Ranked Gonzaga Hard To Come By As Season Ends

Published

Tickets to Gonzaga's last home games were either sold out or substantially marked up
With Gonzaga atop the college basketball rankings for three straight weeks, all tickets for remaining home games are already accounted for, but fans are "still determined" to find a way into the final three home matchups, according to Whitney Ogden of the Spokane SPOKESMAN-REVIEW. Several fans have "turned to scalpers on Craigslist to find tickets" at the 6,000-seat McCarthey Athletic Center. Tickets to Gonzaga’s last home games were "either sold out or substantially marked up in value on several secondary markets." No tickets were "left to purchase on TickPick and a handful were available on StubHub for as much as $500 apiece" to this Saturday's game against Pacific. Some scalpers on Craigslist were selling tickets to this week’s matchups against the Univ. of S.F. and Pacific for "about $100 apiece." Reselling tickets in secondary markets for a "higher price than the face value -- which never exceeds $40 per ticket, regardless of the Zags’ opponent or the date of the game -- is against Gonzaga’s policy." Most of the seats inside the arena are "already reserved for specific groups of people, such as season-ticket holders and students." Gonzaga Deputy AD & COO Chris Standiford said that the school has "created a system in which fans can still find ways to get inside." Any extra tickets that are not "purchased by students, faculty members or the visiting team at the beginning of each week are sold" to Bulldog Club members for up to $40 on a "first-come, first-serve basis." Gonzaga Associate AD/External Operations Chris Johnson said that every Bulldog Club member has the "opportunity to attend at least one game a year, especially during winter break when 1,200 of the students’ seats are vacant" (Spokane SPOKESMAN-REVIEW, 2/15).
