Team Reminds Fans That the Lakers Resale Marketplace on Lakers Ticket Exchange at is the Only Guaranteed Secondary Ticket Reseller

EL SEGUNDO – The Los Angeles Lakers announced today that it has issued a fraud alert to warn Lakers fans about the potential dangers of purchasing tickets from third party sources.

Lakers fans are encouraged to make their ticket purchases directly from the team. Tickets available at Lakers Ticket Exchange at are sold by Lakers Season Ticket Holders and other fans.

Ticket prices for the Lakers Ticket Exchange at are established by each individual when the tickets are posted for sale and often exceed face value.

“We want to make sure buyers are knowledgeable about purchasing tickets from the secondary market,” said Tim Harris, Senior Vice President of Business Operations/COO. “Lakers Ticket Exchange at is the only secondary site where purchases are authenticated and verified by Ticketmaster, and fans will be assured entrance into STAPLES Center on game nights. Lakers fans can save themselves the aggravation and frustration of being denied access to a game by buying tickets directly from us or at Lakers Ticket Exchange at”

Fans purchasing resale tickets via Lakers Ticket Exchange at may have their tickets delivered by email to print from a personal computer similar to printing a boarding pass from a home computer/printer. For more information, visit
