Demand For Inaugural Big Ten Title Game Tickets "Soft" On Secondary Markets
Published December 1, 2011
SEAT FILLERS WANTED? In Milwaukee, Don Walker noted the Big Ten was “forced to send a Tweet out saying it is NOT paying fans to fill Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis for the Big Ten Championship Game.” The conference tweeted, "Fans, please be aware, regarding the Big Ten Football Championship Game, the Big Ten is NOT paying fans to attend. #B1GFCG." Walked noted that StubHub had tickets listed “for as little as $9” (JSONLINE.com, 11/30). An ad posted on Craigslist read, "Saturday night event in downtown Indianapolis needs seat-fillers. Total number of seat-fillers needed will vary based on crowd. Must tolerate loud noise and crowds. Must have red or dark green casual clothing to wear.” The Big Ten said, “We are not involved in that. You’ll have to ask Craig’s List” (OUTKICKTHECOVERAGE.com, 11/30).
