Ticket Lottery Information:
Ticket lotteries are usually arranged for public on sales at the Verizon Center box office. The ticket lottery allows all patrons purchasing tickets in person at the Verizon Center box office an equal opportunity in obtaining the best seats available during the actual public on sale. Patrons are asked to be in line one hour prior to the public on sale time where numbers will then be picked out of a hat to determine their order in line for purchasing tickets. Camping out to purchase tickets is not needed with a ticket lottery. A ticket lottery does not give patrons access to tickets prior to the public on sale time.
