New England Patriots tickets for sale: Better think twice

The New England Patriots plan a crack-down on tickets reselling, starting with StubHub.

New England Patriots tickets for sale: Better think twice The New England Patriots have won the court case to get the name of every person who ever both or sold Pats tickets (or attempted any of the two) through the popular website StubHub. So far the New England Patriots have refused to reveal specifics of what they will do with the nearly 13,000 names, which the eBay-owned StubHub has been ordered to give up to the Pats. An attorney for the Patriots claim that they will use the information to crack down on illegal ticket reselling - according to the team's policy, people are not allowed to resell the tickets for profit. According to the attorney, the list of names was given to the New England Patriots last week.

 According to the latest ruling on the case, the Patriots are allowed to use the information to cancel tickets of violators or reporting violators to authorities for breaking anti-scalping laws, which mandate that the ticket could be sold with maximum markup of $2 plus service fees. So if you have bought an overpriced New England Patriots ticket soon it may turn out that you have wasted your money on nothing. For now the only safe alternative to re-sell or purchase Patriots tickets is on the team's own website, which limits the price to the face value of the ticket.
