    Default Are season tickets a good investment?

    I'm considering splitting season tickets with a group of people. Hoping to get 2 or 4 seats for every game for about $100 ticket. I figure we can hopefully sell off enough games at a premium and playoff tickets to at least break even and get to enjoy a lot of games for free.

    Anyone done this? Thoughts?

    This is my six season with season tickets. This is the first year that im about to break even while enjoying free games. It took some time but my dedication is paying off now. With that said it is worth it especially with perks like playoff rights and Knick events.

    Is 75 dollars a seat enough to get decent tickets that have good resale value?

    Any sort of other fees you have to pay - like seat license, etc? Do you get a discount from buying in bulk?

    Well, the 400 seat section are now $150. per.
    Thanks to Melo.
    That's a big raise from being $6. dollar seats when I was in H.S. in the mid 1970's. For those who could afford season tickets this season got a great deal in a short term stock investment.
    sell one games ticket and the next game is FREE.

    Yea I just sold a bunch of tix in the 133 area: Cavs twice, Nets, and Bucks (in march...I'll be there tonight) all went for $95+. And I saw seats in my section going for $400 for the Lakers game.

    And those seats were $87 per (two seats) in the package. Came out to a little over 7 grand, and i think the box office price is $120 so there is a definite discount when you buy in bulk (season tix obviously) so you might be alright at $75 per (if that's the price in the season tix package.)

    I haven't been selling my tix this season tho, I only missed 2 game so far. Next year I might try to make a little $. But if you sell your tix thru Ticket Exchange, they can automatically apply whatever amount you made to your balance, or I guess to your package next season if you renew.

    nice section, what row? what's the face on those?

    It's going to be really hard to get full seasons because the Knicks can literally get 3 times the price by selling many of these games individually with dynamic prices. So they don't want to release any more for full season and the people that have them now aren't giving them up and actually trying to max out because they are swimming in cash

    Yeah there were a bunch of seats closer on the corners but I like to be in the center sections. Face value is $90 a ticket and we had a choice of the last row (24) or the barstools right behind it. We picked the barstools (thought it might be nicer to have a table to chill on and a little more arm and leg room). They had a few half seasons available also, but only in the lower corner sections like 221 and 208, but since they were the lower section they were $108 a game.

    Hopefully next year I can upgrade to at least half-season in the center section. If anybody ever needs tickets to any of the games in mini-plan A feel free to message me because I doubt I will be able to make all of them.

    I invested in a 10 game plan on the Chase Bridges section 313 which is dead center mid court. $150 per ticket x 2 - bar stools row 3. I checked SH before I bought and it looks like they will pay off. The view from the bridges are being hyped as the only of it's type in sports. I have ST in 226 that I half flip and half use. These (313) I am strictly flipping for profit as I personally won't spend $150 on a ticket. We'll see what happens... Definitely a roll of the dice.
