A&M Students Selling Sports Passes to Profit from Football Games


COLLEGE STATION In a matter of weeks, the stands of Kyle field will be swaying with Aggies, but tickets to see the Aggies play are getting harder to come by.

"I know, especially for the Alabama game, people are selling them for around $600," said Texas A&M student Sean D'Souza. The senior is thinking about selling his student sports pass if he can't make it to a game.

"The Alabama game is going to be one of the prime games, not only of A&M, but of all of college Football. If it comes down to that, I would sell mine for a higher price."

Britta Vorhies has already sold her pass for the Auburn game for the low price of $100. One online site is asking twice as much.

"You need to sell it for a good price because that's what it's worth," Vorhies said.

She said this is a steal compared to the Alabama game, where some asking prices are $5,000.

Old Ags who've been going to the games for decades might be surprised to find out that students sell their sports passes as a way to make a quick buck.

"It's just not the typical aggie family to sell your sports pass, but just hand it to someone as a gift," Vorhies said.

The senior said times have changed. She said it's hard to sell her sports pass after going to almost all of the home games, but the extra cash will help pay for school.

"With these economic times, I think that for certain games it is necessary," Vorhies said. "For other games like Rice, not so much."

Vorhies said it's worth selling her sports pass to give someone else the chance to be a part of the best student section in college football.
