WHY is MAYWEATHER vs. McGREGOR USING TICKETMASTER VERIFIED FAN®?
The superfight between boxing’s Floyd “Money” Mayweather (49-0, 26 KOs) and UFC Champion “TheNotorious” Conor McGregor (21-3 MMA, 18 KOs) is one of the most anticipated bouts in history and there are going to be more fight fans who want to be there to witness it in person than there will be available tickets.
One thing both fighters can agree on: they’re committed to getting tickets in the hands of fans. Not scalpers or bots. Mayweather and McGregor are collaborating with Ticketmaster to use the #VerifiedFan platform to power their ticket release to KO bots and scalpers so more fans get access to tickets.
Registration closes on Thursday, July 20 at 10PM PT.
Please note: Registering does NOT guarantee you will be verified, receive a code or have the ability to purchase tickets.
