Ticketmaster Encourages College Football Fans To Purchase Guaranteed Authentic 2012/2013 Bowl Game Tickets From The Official Ticket Exchanges





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 Education Holiday Bowl.

Fans can buy and sell tickets for these college bowl games at www.ticketmaster.com/ticketexchange or by calling 1.800.842.7112.
