Steelers Warn Fans to Watch for Counterfeit Tickets from Scalpers

PITTSBURGH —The Steelers and Heinz Field management are warning fans to watch out for counterfeit tickets when attempting to make a purchase from scalpers for Sunday's game against the New York Giants. Kickoff is at 4:15 p.m.

The Steelers are recommending that fans only purchase tickets from authorized agents.

"We have received information that indicates we can expect some scalpers to be selling counterfeit tickets to Sunday's game," said Steelers spokesperson Dave Lockett. "It is hard to tell the difference between some counterfeit tickets and the real thing, so the only way to be sure is to only buy tickets from authorized agents."

The only authorized sellers of Steelers tickets are the Steelers ticket office, Ticketmaster and the team's online TicketExchange service. Fans may access the TicketExchange service by logging on to or by visiting

"Our goal is to protect our fans and inform them so they are not taken advantage of by counterfeiters," Lockett said.
