Official BlizzCon 2017 Buying Guide

This is it. The moment you have anxiously been waiting for—the chance to attend BlizzCon to celebrate the Blizzard gaming community with your friends!
Welcome to the official ticket-buying guide for BlizzCon 2017. We’ll take you through the entire checkout flow so you can optimize your chance to purchase tickets for the convention. Let’s get started!
Before tickets go on sale:
Visit and sign into your Universe account. If you don’t have an account, create one beforehand! This will expedite the purchasing process and maximize your chance to obtain tickets. If you need help creating an account, visit our support center.

Note: Tickets cannot be purchased via the Universe mobile app. 

Tickets go on sale Wednesday, April 5 at 7:00 p.m. PDT and Saturday, April 8 at 10:00 a.m. PDT. Benefit Dinner tickets will go on sale Wednesday, April 12 at 7:00 p.m. PDT.

Note: If you attempt to click Get Tickets before tickets go on sale, you’ll see the following:

When ticket sales go live:
Visit and click Get Tickets. You will enter the ticket queue, which is first-come, first-served.

IMPORTANT: Do not refresh this page. Refreshing the page will cause you to lose your position in the queue.


Once you reach the front of the queue, you’ll have the chance to submit an order to purchase tickets. Complete this process as quickly as you can, as tickets aren’t held while you enter your information. There are four steps to complete the purchase process:

1. Select the number of tickets you would like to purchase (limit 4 tickets per order) and click Continue. 

Select Ticket Quantity

2.  If you’re already signed into your Universe account, you will advance past ‘Customer Information’ to enter your ticket information. If not, log in to Universe now by clicking Sign In to Continue. Once you’re signed in, click Continue.

  • It may take 5-10 minutes after purchasing your tickets to edit 'Character Name' information.

4.  Provide your credit card information (number, expiration date, and CVV code) to purchase your tickets.
