Chick-fil-A Bowl issues ticket warning

The Chick-fil-A Bowl on Monday issued a warning to fans about fraudulent tickets for Thursday's meeting between Virginia Tech and Tennessee in Atlanta's Georgia Dome.

While the release did not specify any counterfeit ticket schemes, it cautioned that tickets to the game are sold out and that tickets purchased on the secondary market might not be legitimate, like with other major sporting events.

Although the meeting between the Hokies (9-3) and Volunteers (7-5) has been one of the most sought matchups among fans of both teams, there does not appear to be a bustling market for re-selling tickets. On, an online marketplace for buyers and sellers of tickets, seats in the upper levels of the Georgia Dome could be had for $33 each on Monday afternoon. Seats in the lower levels along the sideline went for $200 to as much as $399.

The Chick-fil-A Bowl will be offering a "Ticket Validation Window" at the main box office, located between Gate A and Gate D of the Georgia Dome and beginning at 2 p.m. on Thursday. The box office representatives will be able to verify the authenticity of any ticket.
