There are two presales on Ticketmaster for BTS fans

Because of the high demand for BTS’s Map of the Soul tour, there are two different presales fans can enter to try and increase their chances of securing a ticket. One presale is for fans with the BTS Global Official Fanclub ARMY Membership, and the General Verified Fan Presale is for fans without the membership.

For the BTS Global Official Fanclub ARMY Membership Presale on Ticketmaster, fans have until 10 p.m. EST on Feb. 2 to register. Fans who are selected for the fanclub presale will be notified on the evening of Feb. 4. The BTS Global Official Fanclub ARMY Membership Presale will then take place on Feb. 5 at 3 p.m. local venue time.

Fans who entered the General Verified Fan Presale will be selected the evening of Feb. 5 after the fanclub presale. The General Verified Fan Presale then takes place on Feb. 6 at 3 p.m. local venue time. After both presales, tickets go on sale on Ticketmaster for the general public on Feb. 7 at 3 p.m. local venue time.

Can BTS fans enter both presales on Ticketmaster?

According to Ticketmaster, fans are able to sign up for both presales. However, BTS fans can only be selected for one of the Ticketmaster presales.

“Yes, you may register for both. However, please note you will only get verified and invited to participate in one type of presale. (Either BTS GLOBAL OFFICIAL FANCLUB ARMY MEMBERSHIP Presale or the General Verified Fan Presale),” reads the Ticketmaster website.

The FAQ on Ticketmaster also states, “If you register for both types of the presale and are verified as a BTS GLOBAL OFFICIAL FANCLUB ARMY MEMBERSHIP User, only your registration for BTS GLOBAL OFFICIAL FANCLUB ARMY MEMBERSHIP Presale will be valid.”

If selected for the fanclub presale, fans can purchase up to two tickets per show with the access code provided for the North American tour dates. Fans who are selected for the General Verified Fan Presale can purchase up to four tickets total with their access code.

How BTS fans need to handle Ticketmaster’s anti-bot policy

Ever since ticketing for BTS’s upcoming tour was announced, there has been confusion about how to purchase tickets. Originally, fans were under the impression they could not be on public or shared WiFi networks. This is because Ticketmaster Support replied to BTS fans on Twitter and said fans could be blocked from the ticketing queue if they were on the same WiFi network as other fans.

On Jan. 31, Ticketmaster tweeted out another explanation and told fans they will not be blocked from the queue on a shared WiFi network.

“Sorry for any confusion. Fans using a public or shared WiFi network, no matter how many people are sharing, will NOT be blocked from shopping for tickets. We encourage everyone to sign in to their own Ticketmaster account and join the Waiting Room before the Presale begins. – SD,” the Twitter account wrote.

The Ticketmaster Support account also tweeted information for buying tickets. On the day tickets go on sale, whether it’s a presale or general sale, fans can only use one device to purchase tickets. Fans can enter a waiting room at 2:30 p.m. local time, but can only login to one waiting room per tour date.
