On Sunday, February 3, 2019, the New England Patriots will be playing in Atlanta in hopes of winning yet another Lombardi Trophy in Super Bowl LIII against the LA Rams. The Boston Police would like to take this opportunity to remind fans to be wary of purchasing counterfeit tickets to the big game. Fans who purchase tickets from a second or third party source are taking a chance, therefore, we encourage fans to only buy tickets from authorized ticket agencies. Purchasing from other sources, such as online and social media sites is done at the buyer’s own risk. Officers want to proactively curb such activity and encourage buyers to only purchase from official vendors. Purchasing via other means creates the potential for possessing either an invalid or counterfeit ticket and monetary loss. Remember, if the price of the ticket or the deal seems too good to be true, it probably is!

If any community members have information about the selling of counterfeit tickets, you are urged to contact Boston Police. Individuals wishing to provide information anonymously may do so by calling the CrimeStoppers Tip Line at 1-800-494-TIPS or texting the word ‘TIP’ to CRIME (27463).

Be safe, enjoy the game, and GO PATS!
