Tickets for the Muhammad Ali Memorial Service were scheduled to be distributed to fans Wednesday morning at 10am. Police allowed lines to start forming at 6am and by 8am there were so many people waiting that the Yum Center box office opened early and handed out all 15,000 tickets in just over an hour.
People from all over the world descended on the Yum Center this morning to get tickets and many left empty-handed. Despite being handed out free of charge, tickets are now available on sites like Craigslist were they were being sold for as much as $100.00 a piece.
The Memorial service is scheduled for 2pm this Friday at the KFC Yum Center. The interfaith service will feature representatives from many different faiths as well as eulogies by Former President Bill Clinton, comedian Billy Crystal and sportscaster Bryant Gumbel.
