North Dakota vs. Minnesota in Las Vegas - October 2018

Recommended Posts

There was only 150 left for sale.  UND administration thought small and didn't get the NHL arena.  This will be the hardest ticket in UND history.  Could have easily sold 20,000 tickets.  15,000+ to UND and 5,000+ to MN.  Lost opportunity...shame on them for thinking small.  MN only has 200 seats for this game!

I know it's disappointing but just remember this thing is 18 months away. Alot of people bought as many as they could just because they could. Those tickets all don't have a home. Plus 18 months is a long time. Plans and schedules change,people die (JK). There will be tickets available.

What a scam. I bet a lot of the tickets will show up on the secondary market.

No tickets will be available on the secondary market as they all went in the presale to UND champions club members

The markup on the secondary market will be ridiculous I am sure

You can join the champions club for $135 a year. All of my friends at that level got them. None of them are rich.

I was able to get 4 in the presale. Best $135 I've spent all year.

I think it's worse.  My guess is there are 2,000 tickets on the Vegas scalper market

Not unless Champions Club members are the ones putting them there. That is who got most of the tickets

They did plenty of looking into the T-Mobile Arena. The risk tied with the cost/guarantee didn't make it feasible.

Yes, but at what cost? $99 + fees was already expensive for the average budget.

UND thinking small? Never.

Exactly. UND allocated the majority of the tickets to the people who directly support the athletic department. Would have been a pretty cheap investment this year when $135 would have gotten you an easy way to get 2 regional tickets and 4 Vegas tickets.

I looked into joining recently just for the purpose of buying the Las Vegas game tickets, but you had to have joined by a date that had already passed.  Didn't seem to make much sense to limit it like that.

For $135 a year you get priority ticket purchase, 15% discount at Sioux Shop, free volleyball and womens hockey admission,plus free food at tailgating,plus you're supporting UND athletics. Pretty good deal.

C'mon, think about it...7500 tickets sold vs 20,000 tickets sold at $80 each before fees...unless the costs were over $1,000,000 the numbers don't add up.  And that is just ticket revenue...doesn't include merchandising, concessions, beer, and parking revenue...UND administration blew it by being conservative.  They don't know there own market.  For those of you thinking of buying on the secondary market...you are right everyone has a price but with MN only getting 200 tickets, what do you think their big wigs will pay for a ticket?

Maybe this will be a Garth Brooks concert all over again, so much demand for tickets that they'll agree to play a second night? :cool:

Pretty sure the date was mid-December. The game was announced in July as was the statement that Champions Club members would get pre-sale opportunities. That was plenty of time.

The worse part is lot of people know lots of other people that wanted to go. I also know about six or seven groups of people who tried getting tickets at two pm. It was going to be a blast having such large groups of UND fans hanging out in Vegas together, unfortunately that will no longer happen and a couple of people will only be going from those 20 plus people.

That's awesome! Except for the people who can't go to the Sioux shop, volleyball, hockey, or tailgating whenever they want due to distance...
