Avoiding Penn State Football Counterfeit TicketsOctober 11, 2018
As Penn State football is gearing up to take on Michigan state this Saturday Penn State Athletics is warning fans to be on the lookout for fake tickets.
A record number of about 300 fake tickets were sold for the Nittany Lions’ last game against Ohio State.
Officials say if you didn’t buy your tickets from Penn State or Ticketmaster there’s a chance they could be counterfeit.
“Some of the counterfeit tickets at the Ohio State [game] were very high quality, they look very similar to an official Penn State football ticket,” Jeff Nelson, Associate Athletic Director for Penn State Athletics said. “We can certainly how some fans may have thought that they were buying an official, legitimate ticket.”
Experts say there’s no visual way to tell fake tickets apart from real ones,the only difference is fake tickets won’t scan and their owners won’t be allowed inside.
The ticket office at the Bryce Jordan Center is open from 10 until 6 Monday through Friday. The Beaver Stadium ticket office at gate E opens four hours before kickoff.
