Post by watchersince68 »

So if all is correct and SJB put the tickets on gofan and they sold out at 9:02 this morning
and now they are being scalped, this does nor bode well.

Maximum of four tickets for a long line of fans waiting to buy tickets at Bosco.

I was the second person in the door with the plan to get four reserved seats. They had a total of seven reserved seats with none of the seats next to each other. So I had only one option to get general seating.

The game is on TV.

I would have rathered paid the school $25.00 or $50.00 a seat then have scalpers make a dime.............

This ticket selling system has to be looked at.................and changed.

Way too many future games this year to already have a broken system.

The Ebay site is more than likely a scam. The seller is "brokenpromises" with 1 sell and a refund.

The problem is not the online system of buying tickets, it works. The problem is a school insisting the biggest game of the year in the entire nation be played at a 5,000 to 6,000-seat stadium.

The other option is to do what MD and Servite did which was play the game at neutral site Anaheim stadium every year. Personally I don’t like Anaheim stadium for football in general and I’d prefer it to be played at a football-specific stadium.

If the game were moved to Saturday night, I imagine there are many larger venues that could be used.

  • School builds new football stadium
  • School wants to actually play football games at said stadium

The problem is the same as it's always been in Southern California... there aren't enough quality venues to play a big game in.

I think it should be played at Bosco rather than a cold college stadium

There's something to playing in a small. The environment in a small intimate stadium is a great experience.

What was cold about Cerritos college, holds 16k I think and even Calif thought it was a perfect venue for state playoff game.

The choice SJB is making if their intent to keep the game at Bosco is beyond gamesmanship. It is classless to deny 10,000 additional fans the experience of attending the game in person. This may be the biggest game in a decade and the idea it will give your team an advantage is petty. Shame on the entire school. I don't think the MD fans even had a realistic chance to purchase a ticket.

The visitor stands at Bosco seat roughly 2,000. Those tickets were made available online only to Mater Dei parents at 9 AM Saturday morning, and they were gone within 24 hours.

Bosco makes a killing on this game: all the ticket sales at $10 each, plus $10 per car for parking, and no stadium rental fee. This game alone will pay for one out-of-state travel game next year.

What does a Cerritos college type of venue charge with all the frills security etc and in which venue is there a potential to make more money?
