I am still looking for an OD ticket for the Olympics! I'm hoping a Canadian has a ticket, which make things so much easier :P

Ticketing for Olympics is such a mess--but scalpers seem to have few--if any--problems. I bought a pair of tickets for each of the men's SP and FS through a secondary source. They were category A for each set and were $582 each for SP and $896 each for FS. These were the least expensive of any I could find for Cat. A. My cousin had visited with her son in Vancouver recently and reported that there were scalpers on hand from Day 1 of ticket sales. It's quite obvious that tickets are abundantly available from all the googling I've done....but they are offered by brokers at double and triple the original prices. How do brokers get them in such abundance?

My other beef is seat location. For these prices one should know the exact spot where you will sit.

It's calleld lots of computers, lots of credit cards, and lots of phone lines. It's easy if you have that.

Because scalping is legal in BC it's often impossible to get good tickets for any events that are sold out. I really think it out to be illegal...

Scalpers get tickets like anybody else for most events. They have computer programs in some cases to try to get in faster( use networks that are really fast- I hear of people using the internet companies direct networks etc) & I beleive pay many people to buy tickets, wait in line or wait on the phone lines. This is a business so they find ways unfortunately. However you will notice for the Olympics most have the same lousy A tickets for figure skating as everyone else (unless some of them found ways to buy from Olympic family members which wouldn't surprise me) I personally was on the phone looping around the system for about 45 minutes before tickets went on sale in phase 2 , had several people try to get tickets for me in phase 1 ( no luck) & had 6 computers going. You have to be willing to invest many hours of your time to get tickets. It is not easy but can be done.I often spend days/weeks hours signing up for pre-sales, fan clubs etc to get concert tickets then people say wow yours so lucky to get great tickets. Not really lucky, you have to invest a lot of time & effort to get these tickets & most people don't realize when I buy tickets to a sold out event how much time, research & effort I had to put into it before being able to score tickets ( not to mention $$ on fanclub memberships for decent seats) :)

ITA. I have visited many reseller websites and they seem to have an unlimited supply of tickets to all events. Their prices for unknown seat locations are ridiculous. They add their service charges per ticket to the posted ticket price and it goes up $80 to $135 per ticket. The price you paid for Mens SP is not so much over the original Cat A price of $420 so you did pretty good if that included all the extra fees they charge.

I wonder what the people in charge of the Olympics think about this practice. If they only realized if they kept these tickets out of the hands of scalpers and charged just 10% more than their original ticket prices in the final weeks before the events, THEY would make the profit. Instead it becomes a big business to others. Such a shame.

Section 4 row 11 sounds like they must be Category C- not a bad deal at $150 Canadain given that other sections row 11 are Category B seats!

For those of you interested, one of my friends called Vancouver2010 today & bought practice tickets to all the practice sessions. All they have left are tickets with obstructed views (10-50% obstructed). Sounds better than nothing & since it is a practice chances are there will be empty seats & you may be able to move. Just getting into the building would be worth it. and the price is right.

It is not possible to keep tickets out of the hands of scalpers.

What VANOC did was make it possible to profit from scaplers (and many non-scalpers as well) by opening up the Fan-to-Fan Marketplace. Scalpers with legitimate tickets can sell more easily there than on Craig's List as VANOC guarantees legitimacy. So the site is very useful for them.

And VANOC isn't reimbursing sellers until April. So it gets to hang on to a lot of $$ and earn interest on it for up to three months.
