The Super Bowl XLIV World Champion New Orleans Saints have issued an advisory to patrons seeking to attend New Orleans Saints home games this season to be aware about the existence of counterfeit tickets on the secondary ticket market. The announcement was made by Saints' Vice President of Ticket & Suite Sales Michael Stanfield.
"It has once again come to the attention of the Saints that, unfortunately, there are counterfeit tickets in the secondary market," Stanfield said. "These tickets will not be accepted at our games and those fans that purchase the counterfeit tickets will sadly be unable to gain admittance to the games. Each ticket possesses a special bar-coded imprint that cannot be replicated, and each season we see examples of people that purchase counterfeit tickets. The only Saints and NFL officially licensed secondary market that we can recommend is the TicketMaster Ticket Exchange program that can be found on NewOrleansSaints.com and offers our season ticket holders an opportunity to place their unusable tickets for resale. This highly successful program allows fans seeking admittance to the Superdome a safe and reliable source for tickets."
With the 2010 NFL season opening up on Thursday night, September 9, at the Superdome in a rematch of last year's NFC Championship Game, the Saints would like to remind their fans to be wary about purchasing tickets to the sold-out event through any secondary market channels other that Ticket Exchange. As is the case with any marquee-sporting event, counterfeit tickets are always a risk to unsuspecting customers looking for a way into the big game. NFL Ticket Exchange by Ticketmaster, which is the official Ticket Exchange of the NFL, is the only safe way to ensure that any tickets being purchased are, in fact, a legitimate ticket. This website is for current Saints season ticket holders that are trying to sell their tickets to any games they might not be able to attend. To purchase seats to this game, or any other sold out Saints home game, through Ticket Exchange, simply log on to NewOrleansSaints.com, and click on the 'NFL Ticket Exchange' option under the Hot Topics menu.
