Mayweather vs. Pacquiao Tickets On Sale, But Here's Why You Should Wait

Even though we are only 9 days into the event, tickets for the boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao finally go on sale today, Thursday, April 23 rd at 3 pm ET / 12 pm ET. The best fight we’ve seen in years takes place at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas with the unified welterweight championship, bragging rights, and the possibly greatest fighter of this generation at stake. Tickets, which will be sold through Ticketmaster, will not go on sale until the two fighters reach an agreement with MGM Grand Arena about the event.

However, don’t get too excited about the tickets. For starters, only 500 tickets are expected to go on sale even though the MGM Grand Arena has a capacity of 16,800. The remaining tickets are controlled by the MGM Grand and the two groups promoting the fight. The second problem in buying tickets will be the face price. The cheapest ticket available is $ 1,500 with the other prices being $ 2,500, $ 3,500, $ 5,000, $ 7,500, and $ 10,000. Unfortunately for high rollers, none of the $ 10,000 will be part of the 500 tickets going on sale, but you can probably make an arrangement for MGM Grand tickets in terms of staying there and spending on your property. high roller.

You may not be able to get tickets on the primary market through Ticketmaster when they go live due to the quantity available. The secondary market will be flooded with tickets once promotional groups and the MGM Grand begin distributing the tickets.

Prices will skyrocket at first, but it’s better to wait to buy tickets. As ESPN’s Dan Rafael points out on Twitter, it’s very difficult to move such an expensive ticket inventory. Don’t forget that event prices generally drop as the event approaches and sellers get desperate to get rid of their tickets. Waiting until just before the fight seems to be the correct answer. Rafael recalls a similar situation when Mike Tyson fought Lennox Lewis: “The brokers couldn’t move them at great prices.

I vividly remember on the morning of the fight seeing a boy I knew well in the hotel lobby. He was strong with the Lewis team. He had a duffel bag that he opened for me. It was filled with hundreds of Lewis-Tyson tix that I was trying to throw away. I was taking 50 cents for tickets just to move them.

We’re in an age where more secondary ticket transactions are taking place online, so it will be interesting to see how much inventory is being sold on the ground through antiquated methods. As for the internet, you have Stubhub, the well-known option for grabbing tickets, or a ticket aggregator (think kayak for tickets to sporting events) like SeatGeek and TiqIQ, both tickets from the aggregate broker. Stubhub won’t list the tickets for the event until they actually sell through MGM in case you’re wondering why they aren’t on the list yet.

Stubhub has a Last Minute Service Center located right next to the River to help drop off and drop off tickets.

If you are going to Las Vegas to enjoy the fight atmosphere, but don’t want to spend on tickets, you will have to buy tickets for the closed-circuit broadcasts that are presented at MGM properties, such as Aria, Bellagio, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay, Mirage, etc. Non-MGM properties will not be able to show the fight anywhere in their casino, so you will have to pay the $ 150 for a closed circuit ticket at one of those MGM properties. Tickets for the closed-circuit broadcasts will also be available on Ticketmaster.
