Wizards tickets now starting at $1.75

WASHINGTON – The Wizards are off to their worst start ever, but there is a bright side for fans who want to see them in action.

Tickets to some upcoming games are selling on StubHub for as little as a dollar and change.

Ticket prices on Tuesday for the Nov. 28 game against the Portland Trailblazers start at just $1.75, and tickets for the Dec. 18 game against the Atlanta Hawks start at $2.

Outside the Verizon Center, several fans were surprised by the low prices.

“That’s really, really super cheap,” says Holly Shick.

With tickets at those rates, even non-believers say they would be tempted to catch a game.

“Sure, why not. It’s a bus ride- $1.60 is a bus ride nowadays,” says Kila Taylor, who describes herself as a die-hard Redskins fan.

But not everyone is convinced.

“I would go if my team was in town, but otherwise (I’m) probably not that interested,” says Kim Nielsen, a Chicago Bulls fan.

Colin Spodek says he isn’t likely to check out a game either.

“Not unless they were playing a quality opponent,” he says.
