1. Know Your Options
Trying to plan a trip to a televised sporting event can be intimidating. It doesn’t have to be, though! Just because there's a large fan base of people wanting to attend doesn't mean every option is outside your budget. In fact, attending a UFC® fight can actually be fairly reasonable. The important thing is to know your options.
UFC VIP Experience offers multiple Official Ticket Packages with an array of seating locations across different price points. Whether you want to go all out or are attempting to stick to a strict budget, there is a package for you!
2. Get a Head Start
As with most things in life, the sooner you book, the better! The earlier you start to plan your getaway to see UFC® 187 LIVE, the more options you will have with packages, transportation and hotels! If you are flying in for the event, airline tickets will be much cheaper if you book in advance.
A quick travel tip: Purchase airline ticket three weeks in advance at the very latest. For best results, purchase tickets on the Tuesday or Thursday six weeks out from the event. If you are wanting to attend UFC® 187, that six week mark will be here before you know it!
3. Split Costs with a Group
The more friends and family you can round up to attend UFC® 187 together, the more fun you will have! Not to mention, with a group, you can split meal costs, taxi fare or any other small costs you may encounter. Plus, you will have people to discuss all of the takedowns, knockouts and controversial decisions that are sure to be a part of UFC® 187 with!
4. Go All-Inclusive
