Mayweather vs. Pacquiao is one of the most anticipated fights on the planet. We are only Nine days away from the match, but tickets haven’t gone on sale yet. That all changes Thursday afternoon.
Wednesday, the deal was finally signed between promoters Top Rank, Mayweather Promotions and the MGM for the site contract.
Tickets for the MGM Grand Garden Arena are priced at $7,500, $5,000, $3,500, $2,500 and $1,500, not including applicable service charges, and will go on sale at 3 p.m. ET Thursday via Ticketmaster. They are limited to four per household. There are $10,000 tickets, but they are not among the roughly 500 tickets being made available to the public out of the roughly 16,000 tickets.
The rest of the tickets are controlled by Mayweather Promotions, Top Rank and the MGM Grand, which will distribute the tickets — which everyone has to pay for — to their customers, the fighter camps, the fight sponsors, HBO and Showtime (who are putting on the joint pay-per-view), and the brokers with which they do business. A flood of tickets can be expected on the secondary market later Thursday.
