Tickets for Floyd Mayweather’s Las Vegas super fight with Conor McGregor have been sold only a few minutes after they go on sale, with now shifting hands on third-party websites ranging from £ 1871 to £ 76,000.
Tickets for the bout, to be held at the T-Mobile Arena on August 26, went on sale Monday night.
Only those who had signed for the ticketmaster scheme ‘verified’ fans could buy tickets on sale, and only two tickets could be purchased at a time. Before the sale, the codes for the right to access ticket sales are being sold on eBay for up to $ 200 (£ 153).
Prices started at £ 385 for the cheapest ticket, arriving at an eye-watering £ 7706 for a premium front row seat. But those prices do not include the cost of the ticketmaster service fee 8.5%, that is, the most expensive set ticket fans of 8,361.01 pounds.
But – predictably – prices are much more expensive on second-hand sites such as Stubhub and Viagogo.
On StubHub, the cheapest ticket currently available is £ 1,970 (£ 1,514), with the most expensive being sold for $ 19,930 (£ 15,318). While on our website, ticket prices range from £ 2,080 to £ 13,615.
The bout will take place at 20,000 T-Mobile Arena’s Las Vegas capacity, although if early in Floyd Mayweather bout against Manny Pacquiao is anything to go by, most of the seats will be taken by celebrities and members of the two Reps instead of boxing fans.
