Registration for Comic-Con 2011 Halted Due to Technical Difficulties!


This morning, tickets for Comic-Con: San Diego 2011 officially went on sale. However, all morning Twitter has been full of complaints from fans who were having huge difficulties trying to purchase their tickets.

This afternoon, the organizers of the event recognized that their was a technical problem with their system, and have halted all registration until further notice.

The following message has been posted on


We are really sorry for the problems with registration today. We do not know what the technical issues are, so we have temporarily closed registration.

We will announce on Monday, November 8th, the new date and time that registration will reopen. This down-time will allow us to determine and address the issues.

Only a handful of badges were actually sold today.

Thank you for your patience, and again, we all are truly sorry for this inconvenience.
