As you may have noticed, there is a new tab along the top navigation bar called "Tickets." By clicking on that tab, you'll be taken to the BC Interruption ticket center where you'll be able to find tickets for every Boston College game, both road and away. Pretty cool huh?
What TiqIQ essentially does is serve as an aggregator for other ticket retailers such as StubHub and eBay, showing you a range of ticket location and prices. There's even a color-coded system that tells you if a ticket is a good or bad deal. I would suggest playing around with a little, but you'll find that on the first screen you'll see a chart that shows you the historic prices of tickets for that game and whether they've been going up or down, as well as show you what TiqIQ thinks are the best deals. To dig a little deeper, just click on the game and you'll see a complete seating chart that displays are the available tickets, how many are available and how much they cost.
TiqIQ can also provide you a longer-term picture of how much tickets are going for. Tickets are available for all of BC's upcoming games.
As part of this partnership, you'll probably also see occasional tweets on BC Interruption Twitter account alerting you to particularly good deals. Hopefully, you won't find this too obtrusive and we would definitely like your feedback.
Our hope is that this partnership will be seen as adding value to the site, as working with a smart ticket company like this seems to be a natural direction for us. While we don't endorse ticket scalping, this at least provides you a realistic picture of what you can expect to pay for a given game and should provide you the ability to find the best priced tickets. SB Nation first began working with TiqIQ back in November 2010 and so far it has been well received.
Disclaimer: BC Interruption will be getting a relatively small percentage of every ticket that gets sold through our site. It's not necessarily a lot of money, but we are just poor bloggers and definitely appreciate the support. So please, check out the tickets, we'd all love you if you did.
Further down the line, TiqIQ may also be able to help us do stuff like having a BC Interruption day at Conte Forum or Alumni Stadium by getting us a special deal on a large chunk of tickets. We'll obviously get you more information as that becomes available.
By all means, if you have any questions let us know and we'll do our best to get you answers.
