Tickets sold out at Aloha Stadium for Rams, Cowboys NFL preseason game
The L.A. Rams are slated to play the Dallas Cowboys on August 17th at 4 p.m.
HONOLULU - A disappointing day for some football fans. Tickets to the Rams versus Cowboys game at Aloha Stadium are now officially sold out.
The announcement comes less than a day after tickets went on sale.
Seats that start at $30 each, have already soared up into the thousands. Aloha Stadium announced a sell out before opening the box office Friday morning, leaving many who showed up to purchase tickets frustrated and confused.
“Who takes all the tickets? Can some of us locals get some tickets or something? How can they be taken up so fast?” Questioned Laie resident, Sai Uluave.
Now, the only option left is to buy your ticket on the resale market. Ticketmaster posted prices Friday afternoon, with the lowest prices just under $150.
Senator Rosalyn Baker says, the frustrating phenomenon of soaring online ticket sales before locals can get their hands on them isn’t just unique to Hawaii.
She says since the "bots", or robot version of scalpers are technology based, there unfortunately isn’t a simple solution.
“We're working with DCCA trying to see if we can put anything in statute that would be enforceable,” explained Senator Baker.
Senator Baker says she suspects the closer it gets to game time, resale prices might come down significantly.
