Capitals Fans Plea To Sell Tickets To Other Capitals Fans

New, 3 comments

As any frustrated Redskins fan can tell you, the secondary ticket market is a tricky animal. When you sell your tickets on a ticket site like Stubhub or any other one, you run the risk of selling your ticket to a fan of the opposing team. When you sell your ticket to a fan of the opposing team, you're just getting one step closer to the Pittsburgh Steeler invasion from 2009 or the Phillies invasion of Nationals Park on opening day last April.

The Capitals experienced a little bit of that in Sunday's win over the Flyers. There were a few Flyers fans in the arena, and that bothered some Caps fans. What can Caps fans do about that, though? Mike Holden had some ideas on his blog today, and they mostly involve not actually using the online ticket broker web sites.

↵↵The only near surefire way to put your seats in the hands of a Caps fans is to sell directly to friends and contacts who you know are Caps fans. This doesn't guarantee the tickets will be used by a Caps fan, but it beats putting them out there on very public sites for anyone in the world to purchase.

Holden suggests using person-to-person interaction, message boards and even Twitter, using the #Caps hashtag. It's a great breakdown that's endorsed by the head honcho himself, Ted Leonsis. Holden's article was tailored to Caps fans, but it could just as easily apply to any team in town. Especially the Redskins.
