No service fees on Dolphins tickets through Friday

The Miami Dolphins are waiving service fees for the purchase of tickets to the season’s final two home games until 5 p.m. Friday.

The offer is for the Jacksonville Jaguars game on Dec. 16 and Buffalo Bills game on Dec. 23, and will eliminate the processing/convenience fees, credit card fees and standard delivery costs associated with the costs of purchasing a game ticket. This is the second time this season the Dolphins have eliminated service fees for a limited time to spur ticket sales.

The no-fee offer is also available exclusively on

The offer does not apply to tickets for Sunday’s game against New England at Sun Life Stadium. The Dolphins are expecting one of their biggest crowds of the season; they announced several weeks ago that ticket sales were sufficient to ensure the game will be shown live on local television. Kickoff is 1 p.m. on channels 4 and 12.

Despite improvement on the field and the long search for a young, franchise quarterback apparently over, the Dolphins have the biggest decline in attendance in the NFL this season. They rank last in the league with an average of 55,758 after five home games.
