LOS ANGELES, Dec. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Ticketmaster, a Live Nation
Entertainment company, strongly encourages fans to purchase tickets to this
season's sold-out college bowl games directly from the official Ticket
Exchanges to ensure they are getting guaranteed authentic tickets. Due to
exceptionally high demand for tickets to this season's college bowl games,
fans are cautioned against purchasing potentially counterfeit tickets from
unsecured websites, scalpers, and other unscrupulous resellers.
Utilizing Ticketmaster's barcode transfer technology, all tickets listed for
sale on the official bowl game Ticket Exchanges are validated and then
reissued in the purchaser's name, providing a guarantee of authenticity that
no other resale marketplace can offer. Fans purchasing from the Official
Ticket Exchange by Ticketmaster enjoy the added convenience of downloading and
printing their tickets at home.
"This season's bowl game matchups are among the best in years and that
increases fan interest in, and demand for, bowl game tickets," said Julia
Vander Ploeg, General Manager of Ticketmaster Resale. "Unfortunately, with
rising ticket demand comes the potential for fans to unwittingly purchase
counterfeit tickets. To help college football fans avoid purchasing fake
tickets, we are encouraging consumers to only purchase their bowl game tickets
from the Official Ticket Exchange by Ticketmaster. Thanks to Ticketmaster's
validation technology, fans have complete peace of mind knowing that every
ticket barcode is authenticated before it's reissued and delivered to the new
buyer–ensuring that nothing gets in the way of a great game day experience."
Ticketmaster powers official Ticket Exchanges for the Allstate Sugar Bowl,
Chick-fil-A Bowl, Valero Alamo Bowl, San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia
Bowl, Hyundai Sun Bowl, Taxslayer.com Gator Bowl, Franklin American Mortgage
Music City Bowl, Russell Athletic Bowl, Capital One Bowl, and Bridgepoint
