    Is it even possible to get two tix to our first home playoff game? I mean without buying season tix? if i can get my hands on two, my bro-inlaw will pay for flights. i have many friends in the sd area so sleeping accomodations will be easy.

    The Chargers will have a very limited amount of tickets for sale to the general public. Consider we have 56,000 season ticket holders and the Murph holds around 68,000 dickheads. Many brokers will be all over the rest.

    I would go the Stubhub.com route by clicking on the link on this site at the right hand margin.

    Just as a heads up, the links on the right help support this site.

    Get your best price but consider the links on the right to help support this non profit site.

    You cant sell a ticket for something you dont own, they have not even made the playoffs yet.

    Season Ticket holders have all ready sent in their $$$$$,but nothing as of yet to the public!

    If we get the AFC Championship here, tickets will be going for thousands. I bet I could sell mine for $1,500.00 maybe $2,000.00 a pop on the 50 yard line easily.

    I'd be fine paying something like that, if anyone can get thier hands on two extras and needs to get rid of them look no further.

    Me neither since the merger.

    The only way I could get rid of my tickets for the AFC Championship would be to finance a trip to the Super Bowl and even at that, I do not think I could do it.

    I am debating about a trip to Miami and thinking about staying home. :icon_eek:

    Super Bowls are for "High Society", its not for us, the fans.

    Now if I could get Tickets for face value through the Chargers, bam, I am there, but there is no way in hell I am going to pay that kind of $$$$$$ for a ticket at scalper rates.

    Yeah no way am I paying scalper rates for the Super Bowl again. I did it in 1995 and did not even have a seat but I got in ($500.00). Screw that noise.

    Hey you get in the SB lottery as well by becoming a season ticket holder again !!!

    But did you know that you have to submit your name every year when they are not in it or hosting it?

    Every team gets "X" amount, and some are sent to Season Ticket holders that have expressed an interest.

    Why dont you ask them, I was told, and had to do it every year. Things might have changed in the last couple of years. And I am talking about the years in which the Chargers are NOT playing and or Hosting it.

    This is how it works,

    http://www.teamonetickets.com/tickets-101/super-bowl-tickets-lottery.html


    So if the Chargers make it they will get approximately 17% of the SB tickets (about 12,000 tickets). The big question is how will the Chargers distribute those tickets? :icon_shrug:

    Tickets will be offered to season ticket holders first, general public (brokers) second.

    I called yesterday to find out when/if I could buy extra playoff tickets and was told that the Chargers may not have any extra tickets to sell to season ticket holders, even club season ticket holders are probably SOL. But, if tickets are available they will contact season ticket holders by mail.

    !~BOLT~!, your best bet for getting playoff tickets at a reasonable price is to wait until 30 minutes before kick-off and hit the scalper firesale or get very creative in your message board groveling.

    fuq creativity i already failed that route. i just want some damn tickets, theres no way in hell im having airline tix ordered before i know ive got game tix in hand. this is why i hate frontrunners, and a free market as well.

    no grovelling here, if you got tix you wanna sell ill buy em, other than that fuqit.

    Should we get there, I won't be going to Miami. Too much scratch.

    I'll wait til the game is in AZ (driving distance) next time around and we are going for the repeat. :yes:

    I thought about going to Miami if we went to the SB, but, not being able to afford game tickets--it might be better to be in SD and celebrate with the rest of the fans.

    SD will be wild, if we go to the SB.. I'm sure the Q would televise the game... etc. etc. etc.

    I'll never forget 1/26/86 when Da Bears won their championship... You guys will finally get to live that moment... :yes:
