Ticket prices to see Messi at Copa America soar after selling out

Tickets for all Argentina games are sold out as ticket prices soar to see Lionel Messi at Copa America. After going on sale earlier this afternoon, tickets for Argentina’s three Group Stage games sold out within one hour. As a result, tickets are now only available through the secondary market. So, if you want to see Lionel Messi play at Copa America, prepare to pay more.

With the Copa America scheduled to start in less than four months, CONMEBOL decided to price Argentina tickets for more money than the other nations, including the games involving the host country, the United States.

For instance, the cheapest ticket to see Argentina’s opening game of the tournament started at $215 but quickly jumped to $230 and then $280 before all of the tickets sold out within one hour. Tickets were then placed on general sale to the public. CONMEBOL’s partner, Ticketmaster, has resale tickets available. As of press time, the lowest price for those through Ticketmaster is $303. Vivid Seats has tickets starting at $244.

Undoubtedly, the World Cup winners Argentina have become the hottest ticket in soccer here in the United States.

Tickets for the USA’s opening game against Bolivia start at $60.

Tickets to Argentina matches are already reselling for huge prices

Resale ticket prices through Ticketmaster for Argentina’s other Group Stage games start at $358 (against Chile at MetLife Stadium), and $474 for a standing-room-only ticket (against Peru at Hard Rock Stadium). Resale tickets are less expensive through Vivid Seats ($263 for the Chile game, and $354 for an actual seat in the game against Peru).

To put Argentina’s draw into perspective, tickets to other Copa America games are currently available for a fraction of the cost. For instance, a seat for the Group B matchup between Ecuador and Venezuela in California’s Bay Area costs just $45 each. Peru and Chile‘s opening game in Texas is available for $50 as well.

Each team’s first…
