Sporting K.C.'s Exclusive MLS Cup Ticket Presale Compromised By Real Salt Lake Fans
MLS Sporting K.C.'s exclusive MLS Cup presale for season-ticket holders "was compromised" on Tuesday when Real Salt Lake fans "acquired the online code and began snapping up tickets" for the Dec. 7 game at Sporting Park, according to Tod Palmer of the K.C. STAR. It is "unclear how Real Salt Lake fans discovered the presale code, but it quickly spread through the fan base on social media and droves of their supporters took to Ticketmaster." Those purchases now "will be invalidated." But for Sporting K.C. season-ticket holders, that also "means their purchases using the corrupted code will be invalidated." MLS policy states that visiting teams are "allotted 1,000 tickets" for MLS Cup games (K.C. STAR, 11/27).
