Because of the heightened demand for tickets to Atlanta Falcons home games at the Georgia Dome, the club has advised the following suggested guidelines to avoid purchasing counterfeit tickets:
Fans may choose to purchase tickets at www.nfl.com/ticketexchange. The NFL Ticket Exchange is the only resale marketplace endorsed by the NFL, providing fans with the opportunity to purchase seats listed by Falcons season ticket holders or other fans. *
When buying from an individual or through other online exchanges, do not be lured away from the website by the seller. *
Fans choosing to buy tickets through an online auction are advised to choose a seller with a long and continuous history of satisfied customers. *
Fans should never pay with a cashier's check or wire money to the seller, as there may be no way to get money back if the tickets are not received. Fans are advised to pay with a credit card or through PayPal, which offer some amount of protection and potential reimbursement. *
Many sellers will include pictures of the tickets with their posts on auction sites or message boards. Fans should scrutinize these tickets closely for any inaccuracies or alterations, and cross-check the seat assignment with our interactive map.
