Real Madrid/AC Milan Ticket Clusterf**k Update

1 Jun

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!

    I would be in for 2 tickets! I would go up to $125 each.

      Awesome! We’re up to 5 now!

        I may need 4 tickets, but I just need to double check with couple of people to see if they can still make it. So for now, you could put me down for 2 tickets and I’ll let you know the other two as soon as I find out. 100$ would be ideal.

    I would go for 2 as well. Let’s say around $150 each.

      I sent you an e-mail, but I’m in for $150. I’m willing to do more as well if it means being closer to the players.

    And BTW, thanks for doing all the phone wrangling on this! I really appreciate it!

    Cool! We’ve got our first 10 and possible 12. We’re all down with the $100 ish range so far.

  5. manie June 1, 2012 at 12:52 pm #

    I would definitely be in with that price range for 2 tickets also!

  6. headbandsandheartbreak June 1, 2012 at 12:57 pm #

    Woot! So we’re up to 14 (possibly 16) now. I think we should make our initial goal of 20 no problem. HB & HB Party!

  8. black widow June 1, 2012 at 1:13 pm #

    i’m definitely in for one ticket, but i want the top dollar range, so i don’t think that’ll work with your plans. 😦

    • headbandsandheartbreak June 1, 2012 at 1:17 pm #

      Well at this point, I think this may be a majority rules situation and right now, that’s in the $100 – $150 range so let me know by Sunday if you’re in with the group or just going to go it on your own.

      • Mandi June 1, 2012 at 1:43 pm #

        Put me down for one ticket. $100ish is my price range. (great idea btw)

        • headbandsandheartbreak June 1, 2012 at 1:56 pm #

          Cool. We’re getting there, people! Just need a few more. 🙂

          • Tasha June 1, 2012 at 5:10 pm #

            You guys are amazing! Anyway, I’m considering getting two tickets but not 100% yet but if it all works out i’d want the tickets to be priced $100-150.
            I should know by the end of next week.

    Hi, never posted on here before, but I love this site and would love to go and sit with y’all! 🙂 Put me down for 3 seats, but it may be more…I have to ask a few more people who may be interested.

    I know this is late but I would definitely add at least 2 tickets. Hope this works out! 150-200 is good. Its worth it to see the boys upclose!!

      Hi Alice –

      It’s not too late at all. I just needed to know if we could get 20 people so that we could get the group rate. We have over that now, so feel free to let me know how many you need. Ticket prices and on sale date for the match hasn’t been determined yet. Our sales rep will be calling me as soon as they make a decision. I’m going to put a big post up about this today so please keep your eyes peeled as there will be important information. Once we have the date, I’m going to have to act immediately, so I need to set up a distribution list so we can be ready to go a moment’s notice.
