ROSE BOWL TICKET SNAFU: FEDS FIGHTS FOR FANS RIGHTS
Published September 27, 1994
In response to last year's Rose Bowl ticket controversy, the U.S. Dept. of Transportation plans to regulate certain special- event tours in connection to bowl games this season. Last January, almost 800 University of Wisconsin fans were left without tickets after paying tour agents for a Rose Bowl package. The expanded protection of Super Bowl tour rules would now include bowl games and the NCAA Final Four, and are "expected to be codified after public hearings are concluded this fall." It would require air tour agents to have tickets in hand or a written contract for seats before they can advertise a package as including tickets (Elliott Almond, L.A. TIMES, 9/21).
