The Scoop on Tickets

Tickets for all 2008 single games and packages are available through the Raiders.com web site, or at Ticket Master. Tickets for the general public will be available in late July or early August.

Ticket prices are $36 - $161 plus surcharges.

Don't count on scalpers, as it has been reported the police have been seriously cracking down on scalping practices at the games. Scalping of tickets at the game is illegal in California, so be careful.

Raiders.com offers a diagram for single game tickets in relationship to price and location.

There are several handy diagrams available on the web which show the Coliseum location and seating sections:
