Following uptick in counterfeits, Hawks remind fans of official ticket sellers

As the Atlanta Hawks return to their regular schedule after a league-wide break for the NBA All-Star weekend, team officials are reminding fans to only buy tickets through official channels.

In a release issued Wednesday, Hawks officials say they have seen “significant increases” in the attempted sale and use of counterfeit tickets.

If you want to cheer on the Hawks in a game at State Farm Arena, make sure you buy tickets either from Hawks.com or Ticketmaster, the release says.

“The Hawks.com and Ticketmaster are the only site that can guarantee that the game ticket a fan buys is the ticket that gets them in,” the release states. “Through Ticketmaster.com and the TM app, even tickets transferred or resold are 100 percent verified tickets issued in a fan’s name, ensuring the legitimacy of the ticket.”
