SCALPERS are taking advantage of the great demands for tickets for Game Three between University of Santo Tomas and Ateneo in the UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball finals on Saturday at the MOA Arena.
On the eve of the much-awaited showdown, ticket prices have sky rocketed to as much as P20,000 each for a patron section tickets that sell for only P300 in official ticket outlets.
Twitter user @UAAPTicketsG3 tweeted that there are five available patron tickets from the UST side that are reserved, while six patron tickets from Ateneo side are still available. He started the bidding at P15,000 each.
After more than a hour, the online scalper said the tickets were already sold.
Other online sellers also posted that they have available tickets, only pricier.
Game One of the best-of-three finals series drew 17, 682 spectators, while Game Two had a gate attendance of 19,762. Game Three is expected to shatter both of those turnouts.
UST drew first blood via a straight-set victory a week ago before Ateneo evened the series with a four-set win on Wednesday.
There are some sellers who claim to have available tickets, but the prices were not mentioned.
Instead, they ask interested buyers to message them directly for the prices.
While others are taking advantage of the demand, other fans are willing to trade their tickets.
