Can’t make it to the Fargodome on game day? Check out the NDSU ticket exchange, brought to you by Team Makers.


Just like in any major professional sport, you can exchange your Bison football tickets if you cannot make it to the game. Also, you can exchange a reserved tailgating pass and give it to another worthy North Dakota State fan on a day where you may be absent.

Here is how the ticket/tailgate exchange works.

Head over to and you’ll find the tickets and tailgating exchange under the GAME DAY tab.

Before we give you the details on how to use the exchange, Team Makers does have you abide by some simple rules if you are a buyer or a seller.


Deal locally with people you can meet in person. Perhaps the most important rule, this will prevent you from being scammed as a buyer or seller. According to Team Makers, you can avoid 99 percent of scams by buying local. Don’t get hung out to dry on game day, buy local.


Team Makers advises that you purchase tickets or tailgate passes only after you have seen the item first. Ask the seller to send a photo of the tickets before you pull the trigger. If you cannot see it, there could be a chance it does not exist in the first place.


As with any online purchase, be smart with your personal and private information. All Bison fans are trustworthy, we know that. However, if someone requests your bank account number or credit card number, that should be a red flag. For the sake of your personal information, do not release that to anyone. Chances are that the person asking for your information is a Jackrabbits fan anyway.


After you understand the rules of the exchange, you can begin to use it. Click on either the “Football Game Tickets Exchange” tab or the “Reserved Tailgating Pass Exchange” tab, whichever you are looking to sell or buy.

As you click on either option, you will see listed all the home football games in 2018. If you are a buyer, you can choose your desired game and leave a message for a possible seller. In most cases, your message should include the number of tickets/passes you would like and your phone number, so the seller can contact you directly. You do not need to be logged in to do this.

If you are a seller, you follow a similar process. Click on the game you are selling your tickets/passes for and leave a message. A seller’s message should include: the number of tickets/passes available, price per ticket/pass and a contact number, so the buyer can reach out to you.

In essence, the exchange is a forum for Bison fans to come to if they are in need of or needing to unload tickets. Everyone at the exchange is looking for a mutual benefit and that is to cheer on the Bison, no matter who is in the seats or in the Fargodome parking lot. Please be fair, honest and polite to your fellow exchangers. We are all Bison after all.
