University Of Arkansas Launches Razorback Ticket Exchange To Sell Unused Season Tickets
FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) — Season ticket holders for University of Arkansas football games will have the chance to sell back tickets to individual home SEC games, the university announced on Tuesday (Sept. 6).
The Razorback Ticket Exchange will let season ticket holders receive cash back, up to the face value price of the tickets, if they are unable to attend the games, according to an Arkansas Razorback press release. The ticket exchange will be powered through Lyte, an online ticket exchange platform.
Those tickets will then be sold to the general public at prices determined by real time market data. The release states that these resold season tickets will be available for lower prices than through other unsanctioned resale websites.
The exchange tickets will be available for the Oct. 8 game against Alabama, Oct. 15 game against Ole Miss, Nov. 5 game against Florida and the Nov. 12 game against LSU.
This program is designed to help our loyal season ticket holders by providing them an easy and secure way to get a return on their investment when they are not able to use their tickets,” said Jeff Long, vice chancellor and athletics director. “By working through the Razorback Ticket Exchange, tickets that may have gone unused previously, will get into the hands of other fans who want to attend our games at prices more affordable than the traditional secondary markets. It is an added benefit for all of our fans and will help us in our efforts to provide a full stadium on game day.”
People looking to purchase tickets can make reservations starting Tuesday, when the system was activated, and their requests will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Season ticket holders can begin returning their unused tickets starting Sept. 22.
All tickets are backed 100 percent by the University of Arkansas, so there is no risk of fraud for Razorback fans.
