    2024 NFL Games UK Fans Ticket Exchange on Facebook seems reliable. They only sell at face value (plus paypal fees at about 3%).
    Could be worth checking out.

    Thanks! I will get a ticket somehow, I don’t mind paying a bit over the odds.

    Approx what? $230 US dollars? I don’t think you got hosed at all especially for a once a year event in the UK. It’s a bit high but nothing outrageous.

    Nope, that's a fair price. I'll wave at you from 109!

    Loads of Jets fans in 109 and 110, btw. It'll be our little green corner.

    Just got another promo from "On Location" touting packages.

    Note that most packages include "All Inclusive Pregame Hospitality No 8 Pub".

    Trip Advisor reviews on this Pub are terrible. 8 Quid for a pint? Bad Beer, etc.

    There'll be loads going on, mate. And I can sort you good pubs (although the packages say pre-game hospitality, I can't do that, you can buy your own beer!).

    Gang Green UK aim to have a tailgate on Sunday morning, as well as other events on the Friday and the Saturday - so loads to do (in addition to the official Jets stuff).

    If it were me (and I had my match tickets), I'd book my own flights and hotel. You can use your debit card on the tube, so don't even need an oyster card (same price), although you may want to check a US debit card will work (can't see why not).

    Save the money and let me and Gang Green UK sort you out!

    OK. I have failed to get tickets through the official channel. I am seeing some on the secondary market at 4-fold the face value, and I am not going to buy from that. Firstly, I am not sure if I trust them, especially if not receiving a physical ticket plus I do not want to support a system which allows touts (scalpers) who have no intention of attending, to buy tickets for resale and get away with it. The sellers are even identified as traders. The NFL know this is happening, of course, but do nothing to stop it. Shame on them.

    So if anyone on here has, or hears of, a reliable source for four tickets in a row I would be interested. Otherwise we will not be going, which is a shame since we have flown from London to New York for games and can't get into a stadium 40 miles from my house :mad:

    I admire your stance, but I’m afraid I will probably cave and gets a ticket from one of these scalpers… but it is so galling to have waited hours to get to the front of the queue and then find that all tickets have gone, only to appear on stubhub minutes later at vastly increased rates.

    I've got tickets the day before on Stubhub, dirt cheap... but obviously it's a risk... and four in a row, a bigger risk.

    Are you on the Tickets Facebook group? I've never used them, but people I have and have never had any problems.

    Heard tonight that Tottingham Hotspur beer glasses are fitted to a machine that fills the beer through a valve on the bottom of the glass?

    Can’t wait to see that 2 or 3 or 4 times…

    Yep. It fills up much quicker, and you still get a head on the beer. Clever stuff, tbf.

    What is the official channel, btw, just curious. The NFL is pushing London games and does nothing for the hosting country to help fans get honest tickets at reasonable prices? I mean, you have to pay a fee, sure; but four times face in a most likely not great section??? No way. That's absurd.

    And, Ticketmaster, who should be banished from the planet for all the crap they've pulled over the years by kiting prices, exorbitant fees, somehow legal extortion. etc. just had a huge data breach. o_O
