Another week goes by and One Direction is still the most searched for performer and/or sports team on Tickifieds.com. This week marks the 9th week in a row the British boy band has earned top honors. Tweenage girls can’t seem to get enough of these young chaps and ticket demand is insanely strong- especially for One Direct Meet and Greet passes. 1D actually gained an ever larger share of the search traffic this week as they likely got a boost following their performance on the Teen Choice Awards.
However, with the opening of NFL and NCAA training camps, we are starting to see football make it’s presence felt. Several NFL and college football teams got a boost this past week as tickets are starting to go on sale to the public. Expect football to be a mainstay on the list through the Super Bowl in February.
