TicketCity Bowl 2012: Tickets Available Below Face Value Through Sponsors Website

The 2012 TicketCity Bowl is obviously sponsored by the ticket brokering site TicketCity. Over at the official bowl website tickets are priced at $25, $50, $75 or $125, however Sports Illustrated's Stewart Mandel points out that those same tickets can be bought well below face value at the TicketCity website

How cheap?

Well, those premium $75 seats can be had for as low as $24 and currently there are 24 of those available at that price. In fact all but  61 tickets in the premium section are less than the $75 asking price. Even the coveted seats that are described as having a chair back can be found for as low as $93 compared to the asking price of $125.

TicketCity is in a peculiar situation in that they are part of the secondary ticket market yet they are sponsoring a bowl game where they are trying to sell tickets at face value through the bowl itself. There is nothing wrong with this, but it is worth a chuckle to see this happening.
