Tickets may not be resold for more than face value on the grounds of TD Ameritrade Park, or within a ½ mile radius of the stadium. The Omaha Police Department will be actively enforcing all scalping laws.
Tickets will be electronically scanned again this year.
Once scanned, the ticket is cancelled. The only way to ensure tickets are valid is to purchase them through the TD Ameritrade Park Omaha Box Office (once the College World Series begins), Flash Seats or Ticket Exchange. Click on http://ncaa.com/cwstickets for more details.
GENERAL ADMISSION TICKETS
Fans with general admission tickets will need to assemble at Gates 3 or 4 (northeast and southeast entrances). Lines will form outside the gates and will wrap around to the south along the 10th Street sidewalks.
RESERVED SEATING TICKET PURCHASES
There will be a limited number of reserved seating tickets available for each game being played that day. Those who wish to purchase tickets will need to assemble near Gate 2 (southwest corner) at the TD Ameritrade Park Omaha box office. Starting at 9 a.m., a random drawing will be held every day games are played to determine the order in which fans may line up to purchase reserved seat tickets.
The random drawing process is in place to provide the fairest ticket sales process possible to all fans. By removing the incentive to arrive early, the random drawing saves time for ticket purchasers and significantly decreases the chance for scalpers to be the first in line. Scalpers have historically paid people to arrive hours before a sale in order to ensure a space at the front of the line.
Thirty minutes before tickets go on sale, each person 16 years of age or older will be assigned a number. That number will also be put into a box. A box office member will then randomly draw a number from the box.
The person holding that number becomes the first person in line. The remaining guests will fall in line behind according to their number. For example, if No. 5 is drawn, the person assigned No. 5 becomes the first in line, followed by the persons assigned 6, 7, 8 and so forth.
This continues until the highest number originally handed out is reached. After that, the person assigned No. 1 will join the line, followed by the remaining people in the order of the numbers they are holding with the person having No. 4 becoming the last in line.
Anyone who arrives after the numbers are handed out would join the line behind the last person holding a number.
