How can I obtain the right tickets?
The organizer of the event determines who will sell tickets for a concert or sports event. You will have to check the website of the organizing party to find the right link to the pre-sale outlets. But what if you don’t know who the promoter is? You can use the internet to find out where the event takes place and use the website of the right location or the artist to obtain the correct information. So for a concert by Anouk in the Gelredome, you can find the right info at www.gelredome.nl or www.anouk.nl; and for a match between Ajax and AZ in the Arena, you surf to www.amsterdamarena.nl, www.ajax.nl or www.az.nl for all the right info. This might seem a little time-consuming, but it will save you a lot of money and you are sure to have access to the event. This is a list with official pre-sale outlets. Please note that this list is not complete. LIST OF OFFICIAL SALES SITES:

A list of secondary ticket dealers and/or black marketeers who resell tickets without consent: - budgetticket.nl - onlineticketshop.nl - worldticketshop.nl - tickets4u.nl - tickets123.nl - QQtickets.nl - ticketunlimited.nl - ticketforsale.nl - tickets2buy.nl - ticketshier.nl - stadiontickets.nl (compares prices of various unofficial ticket dealers and only has links to black marketing websites)- pepetickets.nl - getmein.nl - 4alltickets.nl - tickets4events.nl - easytickets.eu - rang1tickets.nl - deticketservice.nl Tickets sold through secondary ticket dealers do not guarantee access to an event. When a concert is canceled, you will not get a full refund, but you will be referred to the official ticketing company, where you will get a refund of the original price, without the extra amount charged by the secondary ticket dealers. Tickets bought through Marktplaats and/or e-bay do not guarantee access to an event either. E-tickets for instance, can be passed on by email or printed out several times but only the first person to arrive at the venue and show the e-ticket will have access to an event. Official ticketing companies are also canceling tickets on a daily basis which have been reported stolen or missing or were bought with stolen credit cards. These tickets are officially canceled but they do look like the real thing and you could be fooled. So, beware.
