I was not surprised at all. It always happens. The demand for tickets increases days before the event. Japsy’s brother from UST also informed us that there are no available tickets for us anymore. Too sad but it’s okay.
While I was checking my blog entry on 2008 UAAP Cheerdance tickets, the comments caught my attention:
Here they go again…people taking advantage of the others’ needs. They might be students or scalpers selling tickets twice or thrice the price. If you are that desperate, you would really grab their offer. It was 2007 when a scalper offered us some tickets for higher price but we didn’t buy it. Scalping is an illegal activity and we were able to witness that time when the police caught the scalpers in the vicinity of Araneta Coliseum.
If you are still looking for tickets, you’ll be lucky enough to find and buy some through website forums, meet students who are selling their extra tickets or negotiate with a scalper (this is not an advisable thing to do). There are also websites or blogs where bidding for tickets happens. Check out LJDiaz’s website:
I really enjoy watching the UAAP Cheerdance Competition inside the Araneta Coliseum because you will feel the excitement of the students cheering for their schools, and the eagerness of the teams to win. I don’t think I will be able to watch it this year because I still don’t have the tickets but I can watch the TV coverage in Studio 23.
Goodluck to all the schools!!!
