Douglas's story

I have been born and raised in Pittsburgh and have always loved the Steelers, Pirates and Pitt Football and Basketball since I was a kid. We never could afford to go to any games when I was younger. So, when I got my job in the banking field I bought season tickets to every sports team in town and started living my childhood dream. I went to a lot of games over the next 15 years, but then I had my first daughter and my budget had to change because I wanted to start a college fund for her ASAP. That's when I decided to sell my season tickets online and use the profits to fund her college fund and that was the beginning of what would become 412 Tickets.
