The Marquette University Golden Eagles has expanded its ticketing agreement with Ticketmaster to enable fans to purchase and resell event tickets through TicketExchange, the new University-authorized online resale service. The service is available to Golden Eagles mens basketball season ticket holders, five-game plan holders, as well as single game ticket holders that purchase through Ticketmaster. Fans finding that they are unable to use their tickets may post their tickets online via TicketExchange for sale to other fans.
Heres how it works: Season ticket holders and five-game plan holders may post their tickets to TicketExchange through their online My Marquette account, and single game ticket holders may post their tickets through the TicketExchange section within Ticketmaster.com.
Golden Eagles fans may visit TicketExchange to search and purchase tickets offered by season, five-game and single game ticket holders for Golden Eagles games that might be sold out, to obtain what they may deem to be a more favorable seat location, or to obtain a ticket located in a specific seating section that might not otherwise be available.

Fans who purchase tickets through TicketExchange receive a brand new ticket with a new unique barcode identifying the buyer as the owner of that ticket. Fans who purchase tickets through Ticketmaster by phone or online or through TicketExchange may select to have their tickets delivered electronically via TicketFast®, Ticketmasters online ticket delivery service.
