Denver Broncos warn fans of counterfeit tickets


With the AFC Championship Game between the Denver Broncos and the New England Patriots approaching on Sunday, the Broncos are urging fans to be wary of counterfeit tickets that can make their way through secondary markets. The team is asking fans to take appropriate measures to ensure the authenticity of their purchases.

Only tickets acquired from team-associated outlets, including the Sports Authority Field at Mile High ticket office and Ticketmaster/Ticket Exchange, can be fully validated by the club and the NFL.

“We want fans to be fully aware of the risks involved with buying tickets in the secondary market while remaining assured that tickets purchased through the ticket office, Ticketmaster or NFL Ticket Exchange are 100 percent authentic,” said Mac Freeman Broncos Senior Vice President of Business Development.

The Broncos announced earlier this week that tickets will be available only to fans with a valid billing address in the Rocky Mountain region, including Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming, Nebraska, Montana, South Dakota and Western Kansas.

Sunday’s AFC Championship Game kicks off at 1 p.m. at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
