Keep It Simple

The simplest way for Houston sports fans to buy the best tickets

One of the best things about going to an Astros or Texans game is cheering on your team live and in person, but one of the worst has got to be the ticket fees.

Most ticket sites surprise you at check-out by tacking on fees of 30 percent or more, turning what might have been an affordable experience into a pricey outing.

But SimpleSeats doesn't charge buyers any fees, all while still offering Houston sports fans the best possible tickets in their chosen price zone.

Michael Dillon, a local former sports executive who spent eight years in the Astros front office, along with a team of sports enthusiasts and ticket experts, figured out how to get fans tickets without the fees.

It works like this: You pick the zone. They pick the seat at the best possible price (and if you want to pick your exact seat, you can do that, too). All tickets purchased together are seated together, so there's no worry about your party being separated.

All purchases are protected by the SimpleSeats guarantee, which vows that your transaction is safe and protected, and that you will receive your tickets on time. If tickets are available, you can purchase right up until the start of the game!

The goal of SimpleSeats is to keep ticket-buying simple: to use efficient operations to provide the best possible prices to fans.

With lower prices, fans can go to more games. And with more fans at the games, Houston teams get the homefield advantage.

Plus, spending less on tickets means you get more money for merch and beer. That's a win-win.
