    I rang the number and eventually got thru to a rep that said my order was completed & everything is fine on their end, I mentioned Flash Seats and she said not to panic and that the tickets will be delivered later

    Cheers for that. Might give it a few weeks before I start worrying about it in that case. I wish it was just the ticketmaster model though, print your tickets from a pdf and none of this messing around.

    I saw Drake is playing in the mgm the night of the fight - las vegas is going to be hopping that night!

    When everyone arriving in Vegas? I’m tuesday 2nd to Tuesday 9th. Suppose we’ll end up in Nine Fine Irishman most nights

    Just for anyone who had only gotten the AXS email confirmation and nothing else after buying tix.

    Flash Seats are the Ticket delivery app from AXS, tweet Flash Seats saying that you have yet to receive your tickets. I tweeted them and they requested my details via DM and I had my tickets sent within 30 mins.

    Thing is that the Flash Seats app where you will get your ticket QR code seems to be US only and you cannot download it from the Irish Play Store. I googled Flash Seats apk on Google to bypass Play Store and signed in on the app and tickets are finally there!!

    Never thought I would praise Ticketmaster but between the $60 service charge on a single ticket and the roundabout way you have to get your tickets, AXS really are a brutal alternative

    All sorted now mate thanks for that. Bit of a feckin rigmarole altogether with downloading the apk and so on. I could imagine there'll be plenty of people having got tickets and will expect a pdf to be emailed to them.

    Just sent emails to AXS and this Flash Seats crowd. Some racket to get tickets.

    Got the Flash Seats app from the USA Apple App Store.

    Downloaded flash seats but been onto axs via email to try sort the tickets. Think I’ll be using my credit card as my entry pass.

    I cant remember my password and it wont send me the update link lol. Some fun ahead

    exact same although I'm convinced i entered correct password. I'd like screen shot of my ticket within their app for security


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,096 ✭✭✭The Ayatolla


    I created an AXS account before I went on to buy tickets last Wednesday.

    For some reason it wouldn't accept my password, so I created a new account using the same email address. Bizarre. God knows what "account" the tickets are linked to, because it seems I have two accounts now with the same address.

    Thankfully I have an Order ID, confirmation email and money has been taken off my card. Awaiting response from AXS / Flash Seats.

    Yeah me too sure chrome saved it


  • Registered Users Posts: 746 ✭✭✭Thegalwayman


    We'd be in trouble if we'd bought the tickets to turn a quick profit selling them. Another good fight added to 230 card. 229 is a shocker bar the main event.

    There hasn't been any fight announcement for 229 in about a week. For a while I was thinking they were working on something big, but FFS it's only 7 weeks away - I hope they're planning on having the usual 12 fight card?


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,882 ✭✭✭sc86


    this card is terrible still


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,096 ✭✭✭The Ayatolla


    A lot of the fights announced so far are pre-lim fights without a doubt. I expect a lot of movement regards the main card this week and next.

    I hope you're right but I haven't seen anywhere to confirm that they're prelims. Volkov v Lewis has been confirmed as Co main and O'Malley said he's on the main card.


  • Registered Users Posts: 746 ✭✭✭Thegalwayman


    SO managed to get my flash seats app up and running so have a QR code for my 2 tickets. I'd much prefer a pdf for each ticket but at least betweenthe app and the credit card I have back up for entry


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,096 ✭✭✭The Ayatolla


    I was at least expecting another title fight as co-main. That's disappointing.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,415 ✭✭✭EagererBeaver


    The WME influence has a lot to do with things I imagine. They were still finding their feet and figuring out their plans at the time of 202 and 205.

    They're after the cash and the cash alone, whereas the Fertittas, dodgy ****ers though they may have been, cared about the sport and putting on a show. WME won't waste other good fights when they know everyone will be tuning in to see McGregor anyway.

    anyone got the number to get someone on customer service, this axs **** is sickening my happiness now.

    Got a number off the Swedish support line, hopefully it is short circuit wait number.

    001 9253574228

    The axs account management is terrible on this site. No validating creating an account with same email as previous, no email confirmation to confirm etc.
