The SB Nation network struck up a deal with the ticket website TiqIQ at the end of last season to provide users with easy access to sports ticketing at our team-centered blogs. Unfortunately the season ended before we could hype up this pretty awesome tool to purchasing tickets. And now that new CEO Adam Aron has cut ticket prices like he's The Hound, it makes this partnership even AWESOMER.
Here's a quick rundown of the button you can find on the tabs near the top-right of your page.
Aggregated Listings: They combine listings from sites like StubHub, eBay, Ticketsnow and TicketNetwork so it's all in one place and you find the best price.
TiqZone Categorization: They break each venue up into TiqZones, which are groupings of sections that we’ve determined are similar in value. If you're reading this site, you're probably not sitting courtside. No offense.
TiqIQ Statistics: They provide ticket-level buying intelligence through their IQ rating and TiqIQ Statistics. Hence "IQ" in the name.
- Jrue Holiday: Imagine how good he looks in person!
And with the tickets right here on Liberty Ballers, it'll be even easier to arrange a Liberty Ballers Night Out, which will not actually be sponsored by Marc Zumoff and potentially never happen in this reality. Definitely give it a look, poke around and see what you can find. We'll alert you to any deals we hear about over the course of the season.
On a somewhat related note, where does live basketball stack up against baseball, football, and hockey as a spectacle? How about NBA vs. NCAA in person? It's always been a money and distance issue for me not going to enough games but with the lower prices, it's hard to make that a reason now. You can go to the Sixers game by yourself for as much money as you could go to the movies with a date. Since we're all unlovable hermits here, I think you should go to the Sixers game solo. Meet you there!
