Following the confusion and disappointment we reported on earlier this week, New York Comic Con has announced that they will reopen the Fan Verification Process for tickets that have already been purchased starting on Monday July 11 at 9:00am and ending at noon on Tuesday July, 12.

Fan Verification is required for anyone who wants a ticket to attend NYCC. Even if someone is buying tickets for a group of people, each of those people must be fan verified. Otherwise their tickets will be offered to others and their money will be refunded.

Fan Verification will still be allowed after July 12, however it won’t apply towards tickets already purchased. Instead it will be used for potential buyers when reclaimed single day tickets go on sale.

The statement on the NYCC site says:

“We have heard your feedback about the NYCC Fan Verification system and recognize new processes are hard. In an effort to give everyone a second crack at nailing this Fan Verification system, we are going to reopen Fan Verification so that Fans who did not go through the first round of Verifications can be added to existing orders. Fan Verification will reopen on Monday, July 11 at 9:00 AM EDT.

In order to be attached to an existing order, you must fill out a Fan Verification application by Tuesday, July 12 at 12:00 (noon) PM EDT. Fans that Verify after this date and time will not have the opportunity to be added to existing orders, but will have the opportunity to purchase reclaimed and cancelled Single Day Tickets on Wednesday, July 27 at 12:00 PM (noon) EDT.”
