    SuperBowl tickets

    Hi, is anyone aware of a ticket agency that specializes in those needing handicapped seating for sporting events? I'm looking (hoping) to buy wc accessible tickets to the SuperBowl, but haven't had any success so far. I'm afraid to buy regular seats, and hope they can switch them when I'm at the stadium.

    Have you tried contacting the venue to see if they can be switched out? I know even when the bears games are sold out, they still have w/c seats available. They WILL NOT sell you a w/c seat but will gladly exchange them for a ticket previously aquired. Good luck to you and the Eagles

    Good luck getting tickets. I contacted various ticketing agencies for the 2009 Final Four in Detroit. I contacted the NCAA and Ford Field. The ncaa told me to pretty much plan on watching it on television. The venue told me they would call me back in 2 weeks to let me know if I got tickets. That was 2 months ago, needless to say they never called. The agencies told me they don't sell accessible seating and if they did it would be super expensive. So basically theres no way to get tickets cause Im in a wheelchair. Hope you have better luck and if you do let me know how you got the tickets. I find it unfair an illegal that because I am in a wheelchair I can't get tickets when if I was ab I could buy a package right now...

    Well as mentioned above, they will try to accommodate you when you get to the stadium, I'm just nervous to spend that much, and not have a guarantee where my seats will be.

    Oh yea they accommodated me at the common concert I went to in berkeley a few months back. I ordered accessible seats and upon arrival I found out my seats were "regular" seats and I would not be able to sit there. So they accommodated me right behind the sound programmers. It was the only place in the arena that a wheelchair would fit. It was on a slope so I pretty much had to hold myself in place the whole time as my brakes don't really work that well... So like I said good luck. I didn't see a god damn thing I was looking at the back of this dudes head the whole time an the computer monitors for the concert...

    don't take "no" for an answer. call the venue b/c they''re the only ones who will be able to sell you accessible seating.

    i got wheelchair seats to a SB a few years ago but i had sent a request in the summer before. but call the venue and don't give up until you talk to someone who can give you a YES.

    never been to a Superbowl game, but for regular NFL games, i directly contact ticketmaster, and they send me an email right away for accessible tickets.
