Tickets for the highly anticipated boxing match between former five-division world title holder Floyd Mayweather (49-0 boxing) and current UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC) go on sale Monday, and you can get in the door for a mere $500.
Face value of tickets will scale up to $10,000 for the Aug. 26 pay-per-view event at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Mayweather Promotions officials recently announced that tickets will go on sale Monday, July 24 at 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT at Ticketmaster.com. Fans are invited to pre-register via the Ticketmaster Verified Fan program to “ensure that tickets go to the fight fans who demanded this matchup and knockout any bots or scalpers attempting to buy tickets.”
Registration ends today at 10 p.m. PT.
“It is vital that we provide our fans with a fair opportunity to purchase tickets to this unprecedented event taking place on Aug. 26 between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor,” Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe stated. “This is a fight derived from the fans and should be available to be enjoyed by fans. It was necessary for us to partner with Ticketmaster Verified Fan for an event at this magnitude to provide everyone with a safe, worry-free method to purchase tickets.”
Fans will be limited to two tickets per transaction, and there is a touch of fine print.
The program gives fans the opportunity to receive a unique offer code and link to use when purchasing tickets for the historic event. To receive a code, fans must first be verified through the registration process. Registering does not guarantee you will receive a code, nor have the ability to purchase tickets. Only fans who receive a unique code will have the chance to purchase tickets on a first-come, first-served basis.
