NFL Announces 1,000 Super Bowl Tickets are Nontransferable

The Star-Ledger reports 1,000 Super Bowl XLVIII lottery tickets will be restricted to purchasers and nontransferable.

However, a bill pending in the New Jersey Legislature would outlaw such restricted tickets.

“If you win the lottery, you should have the right to do with it what you want,” the bill’s sponsor, Sen. Raymond Lesniak said. “If the winners want to sell their tickets, God bless them. I don’t have a problem with that.”

Ticketing Service Fees may be Unavoidable

The Star-Ledger reports a New Jersey fan seeking tickets to a show at Wellmont Theater in Montclair could not reach anyone at the venue’s box office. The disgruntled fan had little choice but to buy tickets through Ticketmaster and hand over the associated service fees.

“It’s a monopoly,” he said. “They used to say it’s not a monopoly because you can go to the box office. But now it’s the only way to go.”
