Colts put “limited number” of preseason tickets on sale

Nothing creates demand like a trumped-up scarcity of supply.

And so at a time when the Colts have seen their season-ticket waiting list completely disappear, leaving the team hustling to exhaust the available crop of full-season seats, the Colts have announced that a “limited number” of single-game preseason tickets will be sold, starting today and tomorrow.

Remaining season-ticket holders get dibs on Monday at 10:00 a.m. local time.  The general public gets a crack at any remaining preseason single-game tickets at 10:00 a.m. local time on Tuesday.

The Colts haven’t disclosed the specific amount of the “limited number” of tickets.  And while the ploy may help move a few more seats to meaningless games, it’s hard to imagine anyone feeling sufficiently motivated to pay regular-season prices to watch a rebuilding team that refuses to acknowledge that it’s rebuilding, and that ran out of town an all-time great quarterback who seems to be inching closer and closer to reclaiming his all-time greatness.

But maybe they’re indeed “close” to selling the tickets.  Just like they’re “close” to signing Andrew Luck.

    nothing like paying full price to see practices

    they’re quick to double the face value of playoff games though

    it makes no sense, just open up the doors to preseason games as first-come, first-serve

    Give the pre-season game tickets away for free along with a complimentary 18 ounce beer.

    Most pre-season games are so bad the owners should be paying us to suffer through them.

    Never talk smack to Mike Florio or you will feel his vengeance on PFT Monday thru Sunday.

    It’s going to be ugly in Indy for a while…Sorry. You won’t be much better than last year. With any Luck..lol..Indy will win 5 games.

    the colts did not run anybody out of town. he chose not to rework his deal so that it was affordable for the colts to keep him. then left for more money with the broncos. just another case of it not being about the money being all about the money.

    Maybe that’s what’s in his “secret message” contest give aways. I would rather eat a box of bath salts than pay money to watch any team play in the pre season! I have people offering me free pre-season tickets every year, and every year I kindly say no thanks. It’s not even worth the price of parking to watch a pre season game. Hopefully someday the NFL will listen, and take those stupid games out of the season ticket package.. It’s ridiculous, and they worry about the fans staying at home… Like I said, if you pay 120 a seat, times 2 seats, that’s 480 dollars a year you pay for absolutely nothing. Wake the F up NFL, this WILL sell more season tickets!!!

    Or, he wanted to play on a team that wasn’t rebuilding.

    It’s sad to see Indy fans jump off the bandwagon as soon as Peyton leaves. Luck is going to be an absolute stud and I believe they are immediately the 2nd best team in that division because of him. Look forward to an 8-8 year this year and a division title next year. I’m sure the “fans” will come out of hibernation sometime around 2014.
