You know, we weren’t planning on posting this article for another week or so. But it turns out if you wait much longer, it might already be too late.
Two weeks from now is the blockbuster match of the 2018 MLS season. At high noon Saturday March 31st at the StubHub Center, the Galaxy and LAFC will engage in the first of many duels. (Pew pew pew)
It’s a hot ticket. Single-game tickets are sold out, with just 23 luxury field seats at a cool $300 a pop left. (Edit: 19 left) Third-party sellers aren’t much better, with prices starting at $100 on StubHub and a similar story at VividSeats.
We spoke with an industry expert on the matter. As she pointed out its not an exact science, but with several hundred tickets available on multiple re-seller websites, the odds are good you can wait out the scalpers and hold back on buying tickets until the last minute when the prices drop. However, if you want peace of mind now and would like to avoid the risk of paying more down the road, buy your tickets before the hype train arrives.
