Boise State Apologizes For Student Ticket Mess
Some Boise State students hopped on social media this week to complain about the new online ticketing system through Ticketmaster, and the school heard them loud and clear. What happened?
It's a big game this Friday, Sept. 4th. It's the opening game of the season, the home opener, and the Broncos take on former BSU coach Chris Petersen and his University of Washington Huskies. Students want to be there!
There's a new online ticketing system that had students getting into a virtual line, but some students felt like it left them out in the cold. The system crashed for some. The tickets that students were able to get online will be honored, but the school said it will also start passing out student tickets in person at 6am Wednesday. Each full-time student gets one free ticket to the game, and part-time students can buy one for $45.
Boise Weekly says they'll hand out tickets to students (with proper identification), in person at the Athletic Ticket Office on the west side of Albertson Stadium, beginning at 6 a.m. on Wednesday. No overnight camping, but students can start lining up at midnight tonight. Standing, and no sleeping it seems.
Once the ticket mess gets sorted out, the Broncos will be wearing those super sassy all-blue uniforms to take on Washington. And as KTVB points out, since 2000, the Broncos are an NCAA-best 92-4 at home. Ready for the game? YES!! Something tells us the student section will be extra fired up for this one too.
