Broncos fans warned about fake AFC championship tickets

Given the high profile Peyton Manning-Tom Brady rematch in the AFC championship, it's not surprising that ticket resellers are seeing an opportunity to cash in — fake tickets included.

Denver police and the Broncos on Tuesday warned fans of possible counterfeit tickets moving through secondary markets — generally defined as anything not acquired from the ticket office at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, Ticketmaster or NFL Ticket Exchange.

Counterfeit tickets, especially to the biggest home game the Broncos have had in years, will be out there, specifically on sites such as Craigslist. Police say fans try to get in the stadium at nearly every game, only to be told their tickets are counterfeit.

The cheapest tickets on NFL Ticket Exchange — which is run by Ticketmaster in conjunction with the NFL — on Tuesday morning were $295 each for seats in the 500 level. Prices topped out at about $3,100 per ticket (seats can be marked up way beyond face value).
