UAAP will be having its Cheerdance Competition on September 13, 2009, Sunday, at Araneta Coliseum. I was able to watch it last year by meeting a student from FEU and buying 5 General Admission tickets from him twice the price. Of course, I would love to watch the event this year. Japsy and I went to Ticketnet to check if there are still available tickets but they were already SOLDOUT!!!
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!!!
I went to Araneta Coliseum yesterday for the following reasons:
– to buy tickets for 2008 UAAP Cheerdance Competition this Sunday, September 7
– to claim my (2) free tickets of Al Jarreu and George Benson concert this Monday, September 8, after being chosen as Ticketnet registrant of the month.
Unfortunately, tickets for this year’s UAAP Cheerdance is SOLDOUT!!!
Supposedly, I will buy 3 upper box tickets for me, Kat and Rio. There were many students who were also asking about the tickets but gets dissapointed like us when they knew that there were no more available tickets for sale. Tickets selling started last Monday, September 1. Scalpers are everywhere selling the tickets thrice the price!!! If you are desperate enough to watch, scalpers is one of your last option. Ticketnet will be selling tickets on Sunday before the event. Many students will go to Araneta for sure to wait for these standing tickets in Upper Box A & B. I’m still not losing hope, still looking for tickets to buy through friends. I still want to watch the Cheerdance Competition even though it may mean ending up in General Admission seats.
On the other hand, I was able to claim the prize from Ticketnet: (2) free lowerbox tickets in the Al Jarreu and George Benson concert. I couldn’t believe that they cost P4,725 each!
