New York Comic Con 2021 Badges

So, you want to attend NYCC 2021? Here's what you need to know.

We're so excited for NYCC to return in person in 2021! In order to do this safely, NYCC will have reduced attendance and badges will be limited. As a result, the purchase process of NYCC 2021 badges will be different this year. 

In order to allow the max amount of fans safely into the building, we have removed our 4-Day badges and moved to Single Day badges only. 

We will only be offering badges to a limited group of fans. Badges to NYCC 2021 will be available to purchase if you were Fan Verified in 2019 and for fans who sign up for the Super Fan Membership. If you do not have a Fan Verification account from 2019 or are not a Super Fan member, badges may become available through Lyte, our official fan reselling platform, closer to the show.

NYCC 2021 Fan Verification Onsale

The NYCC Fan Verification onsale is available to folks who were Fan Verified in 2019 ONLY. If you have a Fan Verification account from 2019, you'll receive an email in your inbox from ShowClix on Friday, June 11 to confirm or update your Fan Ver account info for 2021.

If you're eligible for the onsale, you will be able to buy badges for friends and family who want to attend for the first time or who haven’t attended for a few years and want to come back. You will have to assign those badges to your friend or family member’s email address, and they will be prompted to create a Fan Ver account to accept the badges after purchase. 

If you have any questions about this process, our assigning/managing badges FAQs and walkthrough videos will be up in no time. Check back soon!


NEW this year: we're offering something special for our super fans! For the first time ever, you can sign up for our newly launched Metaverse Membership for exclusive access to video content, celebrity panels, and first access to event tickets, photo ops & autographing tickets, and paid digital experiences, plus more.

Our Metaverse Membership will launch on June 30. If you purchase a Super Fan Membership anytime between June 30 - July 8 at 11:59 PM ET, you will have first access to a stress-free buying experience for two (2) badges per day to New York Comic Con 2021 through Lyte.
