Football season is quickly approaching. If you, like so many others, are anxious to get to a Chiefs game but don’t want to pay the high price, there are plenty of ways to score great deals to watch your favorite team play. All it takes is a little bit of flexibility and patience.
Start at the source. Go to the Kansas City Chiefs website to decide which game you want to see. You will also learn more about the cost of tickets and be able to view the seating chart. Some games may not have tickets for sale through the Kansas City Chiefs website, but you can still get a great idea about how much you should expect to spend by starting here.
Chances are, if you are looking for ways to get cheap tickets to a Chiefs game, you are not a season ticket holder. However, that does not mean that you can’t benefit from those season ticket holders who can’t get to every game. Visit StubHub.com to buy tickets safely and securely from those who wish to unload the seats they cannot use. The NFL recommends that you use Ticket Exchange by Ticketmaster to purchase seats from other fans. The prices at Ticket Exchange are generally competitive with those at StubHub. If you are planning on taking the entire family, remember that children ages three and up do need tickets to enter Arrowhead Stadium.
A third option is to use free circulars and online classifieds to purchase tickets from ticket holders. This option is a good one because you can often get the best deals this way. However, when you decide to go this route, you are taking a chance. Dishonest sales have been known to take place. You could end up with tickets that are different than those advertised or nothing at all. You should never attempt to use a debit or credit card when purchasing tickets through a classified. Instead, use cash and hope for the best.
Your last resort might be to head to Arrowhead Stadium on game day with no tickets in hand, hoping to purchase from someone looking to unload an extra seat. While ticket scalpers might be able to give you a great last minute deal, you are far more likely to benefit from buying a single ticket from someone who had originally planned on going to the game himself. This is tricky because you could easily end up empty handed. You will have to take solace in the fact that many sports bars will let you watch the game for free.
