So, people, I may have found a way around this bundled ticket shite. I spoke to the Yankees group ticketing office this morning. Read on, it’s complicated.
Group tickets are not on sale yet, but they anticipate that happening in a couple of weeks and will call me when they have the date. Here’s the important thing: Group tickets are exempt from the bundle. They haven’t set the prices, but anticipate that they will be similar to the Chelsea/PSG prices. Normally, you need to have 10 people to get group tickets, but they might up it to 20 for this match. They aren’t sure. So a lot is still up in the air right now. The lady I spoke to was awesome (an Arsenal/Barca fan) so she understood our anguish. We exchanged information and will talk again when they have a better idea of what is happening. I asked if individual match (non-group) tickets and was told “eventually” – not exactly uplifting, is it?
So, here’s the question: Is anyone interested in joining HB & HB to get group tickets to the match? In addition to getting out of the bundle and also getting tickets earlier, we could all sit together. I already have 3 people in my group and I know quite a few of you are looking for tickets. I would need to know the following: how many in your group and how much are you willing to pay? Have a look at the Chelsea/PSG prices and the seating chart and let me know. Please get back to me no later than Sunday so that we can see if this will be a go or not. If we can’t get 20 folks, we may just have to take our chances on our own. Oh man, I feel like I’m on Lost now: “Live together. Die alone.” Let’s leverage the power of the collective, y’all. WATISH!
