City Ordinance Sends Ticket Scalpers to Internet

By  | 

Over 23,000 Big Blue fans are expected at Rupp Friday night, but if you plan to sell your tickets, even if not for profit, you could end up in jail instead of Rupp Arena.

A city ordinance prohibits the selling of tickets within a two block area of the Lexington Center, even if it is not for profit.

The hype over Big Blue Madness is making some very greedy. A free first look at the 2006 version of the cats has turned into a field day on E-bay.Dozens of tickets given out have gone up on the bidding site, some as high as 225 dollars.

"People are making a lot of profit off something free," said on UK fan.

It's also illegal, but harder to catch than if standing out in front of Rupp.
