You can also post your tickets on eBay or a local auction site that’s popular in your area. You may or may not get a better price using this method but there are a couple of downsides you need to take into consideration: some auction sites charge a listing fee and a reserve fee, others offer restricted payment options and at all times you’ll have to fully deal with the buyer and in case he’s not happy he might leave negative feedback on your account despite your wonderful service.
I believe the methods and sites listed above are more than enough for you to get a good price on your soccer tickets. Good luck!
