Fan Verification

Fan Verification opens to the public June 12.

New York Comic Con is BACK October 12-15, baby! 

Before we get to see you this year, there’s a big, crucial step you need to take to prepare yourself for the NYCC General Onsale, and that’s creating a Fan Verification profile! Whether someone purchased tickets for you or you want the chance at scoring yourself some tickets to the geekiest event of the year, this is what you need to do.

Fan Verification opens to the public during the afternoon on Monday, June 12 and closes on Sunday, June 18 at 11:59 PM ET. 

What is Fan Verification? 

Fan Verification profiles help real fans get tickets to New York Comic Con. If you create your Fan Ver account prior to the June 18 deadline, you’ll get access to our NYCC 2023 General Onsale and future Fan Ver presales.

I’ve never been to NYCC, but want to buy tickets this year! Wut do I do? 

Well, well, well, you’ve come to the right place. You need a Fan Verification profile to buy tickets during the NYCC 2023 General Onsale on June 21! 

When do I need to create a Fan Verification Profile to participate in the General Onsale? 

We put the information higher up on this page, but it’s important enough that we want to say it again! To participate in the General Onsale, you must create your Fan Verification profile by Sunday, June 18 at 11:59 PM ET. At this time, the Fan Verification application will close. If you do not create your profile before this date, you’ll need to wait until after the General Onsale on Wednesday, June 21 for applications to re-open; however, we cannot guarantee the ticket type you want will still be available.

Want more information on the Fan Verification process and other important things you should know before the General Onsale? We have an entire page full of the good and geeky things you need to know to have a successful time at NYCC.


Unfortunately, it doesn’t. What it does guarantee though, is that real fans are buying tickets, and not evil bots. 

The General Onsale takes place Wednesday, June 21 at 12:00 PM ET.

Boooo! Now you can’t participate in the NYCC Fan Ver Presale, but don’t stress. You can create a new Fan Verification profile starting June 12 and participate in the General Onsale on Wednesday, June 21.
