Wednesday’s match-up between 8th ranked UNC and 7th ranked Louisville is the hottest ticket in college hoops this week and with this type of hype, scammers are inevitable. The university issued an official warning for fans to beware of purchasing counterfeit tickets for tomorrow’s game and their March 4th rematch against Duke
Fans looking to buy tickets to the University of North Carolina’s remaining men’s basketball home games this season at the Dean E. Smith Center against Louisville (Feb. 22) and Duke (March 4) are advised to be on the lookout for counterfeit tickets.
There have been several recent reports of the sale of counterfeit tickets which appear to be authentic. Fans are encouraged to use caution when purchasing tickets from a third party and only purchase tickets from a trusted source.
Fans will not be admitted to the Smith Center with counterfeit tickets. Anyone seeing suspicious activity on campus, including the sale of questionable tickets for athletic events, should contact UNC Police.
The university advises that official tickets can be purchased at the school’s ticket office or via StubHub.
