Camp tix now available to STH


Recommended Posts

I wonder if they will go back to holding training camp at the stadium given the much greater demand for training camp tickets. I’ve been going for the better part of the last 16 years and never had problems getting tickets despite living in another state.

This whole thing is so frustrating. They made it appear that it would be handled through the app. Instead, they went through Ticketmaster that has more scalper bots on it than humans 24/7. They should have released some tickets one day and others at a later date so people knew what they were up against. Guarantee you there were bots that had the Ticketmaster URL and were sitting on the page in queue hours before we got through on the app.

I’m normally fine with people making money, but it’s going to be severely disappointing to see people make money off of this-they are literally going to make money for doing absolutely nothing

Well that was an awful user esperience to get tickets. Used to get them all the time pre covid. I'm traveling back to Rochester for 2 weeks during training camp and wanted to get to camp but waited in the line and it ended up selling out.

 

If any one has a couple spares, would like to take my daughter, PM me please.

Our price for success on the field :)

Guarantee that many people who requested tix, did so thinking they may go, and will end up not going(it’s too hot, too cold, might rain, far to drive, going to be crowded, etc…).   
 

Bills staffer who came up with this plan should be fired.  Sometimes just can’t get out of their own way.  😞

Got in queue at 2:00 yesterday with 8500 in front of me. I kept it open and carried it around in my pocket. About 90 minutes later it was 6790. By 6:00 it was under 2000. Around 6:30, it started dropping faster and faster until I was in! It took me to the site and then kicked me off. I really did not expect to get tickets, I was just wondering how long it would take to sh*t the bed. I was out doing things while the doomsday clock was ticking in my pocket. I was really hoping to take my grandson to camp. Oh well.

Im just going to show up and see if someone has extra ticket at the gate. If not ill hang out on campus and get some lunch later. lol

You might have a better chance for an extra ticket at one of the bus lots. They may give you a hard time on campus with no ticket, I cannot really speak to that though. Good luck!

Yes.

 

Sad.

 

I remember visiting camp during lunch in the mid 2000’s on a whim. No we need tickets.

Or you could always "breakdown" on the 490 with a pair of binoculars.  😆

I remember waiting in line for an hour at a store to have them run out before I got mine.

You had to check where the tickets were every day because it went from groceries to drug stores to quick marts during the week.

I went to a 7/11 at the time they were supposed to be available, only to be told they never got any tickets. 

 

This is just as bad but at least you can get disgusted and still have no tickets without driving around town. I remember it being the most efficient when Wegmans sponsored camp, but that was 20 years ago. 

 

Might as well move camp BACK to Orchard Park. This fiasco is not "expanding the fan base".

 

 

 

I snagged some from Tops one year, SafeLite another year, and I think a Monroe Muffler or some other auto shop. Never had any trouble with any of those. Yeah, you did need to know where to go and when, but it wasn't like waiting for 12,000 people ahead of you, only to have the app crash, and you end up getting nothing. I guess I figure if I go somewhere and I'm late, that's on me for being late; if an app tells you you can get your ticket, then proceeds to barf all over itself and deny you a ticket... that pisses me right off.

How does someone give you an extra ticket easily if it's digital and stored on the phone? It may be easy, I simply don't know.
