Want to go to Comic-Con next year? Badges will go on sale November 5

San Diego’s busiest convention is still nine months away, but the crucial date for determining who will attend Comic-Con next year is less than two weeks away.

On the morning of November 5, eager fans of the always sold-out pop culture gathering will be intensely focused on their computers as they scramble to purchase a limited number of badges for Comic-Con, which runs from November 20 to July 23 next. year.

We remind ticket buyers that they will need a valid member ID to qualify for what is called open registration. Ticket sales will begin at 9 a.m., although a virtual waiting room for badge purchases opens at 8 a.m. or 8:59 a.m.

Comic-Con organizers warn that “there are more eligible attendees than badges available. Entering the lobby does not guarantee you a badge or registration session.

This year marked the return of the July in-person convention after being canceled two years in a row due to COVID-19. Face coverings were required to attend the event, as was proof of a COVID vaccination or testing negative within 72 hours. Like this year’s gathering, Comic-Con is expected to draw more than 135,000 people over four days.

The first step before attempting to purchase one or more badges on November 5 is to ensure that you have a member ID, which can be secured at no cost on the Comic-Con website. Individuals are permitted to purchase badges for up to three people, provided each person has a Member ID. A preview night badge only becomes available once tickets have been purchased for Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Daily badges sell for $75 each, except for preview night and Sunday, when the cost drops to $55 and $50, respectively. There are reduced prices for teenagers between 13 and 17 years old as well as for military and senior citizens.
