Home Con News SDCC 2017 Off-Site: FUNKO FRIDAY Details announced – tickets on sale Weds...

[singing] It’s the most Funko-iest ti-iiime of the ye-eeeeeeear! Yup, it’s the night when every Funko fanatic cuts loose and makes like it’s Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year, all in one – FUNKO FUNDAYS at San Diego Comic-Con, held this year at the now traditional locale of the Seaport Ballroom of the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel on the Friday of SDCC 2017, 21st July.

It really is the biggest celebration of everything Funko, with CEO Brian Mariotti and company founder Mike Becker on hand to whip up the festivities – make no mistake, this party is known to get a little rowdy.

And that excitement and anticipation starts when the tickets for this event go on sale, which the Funko Blog has announced is to happen next Wednesday 17th May at 10am PST – that’s 1pm East Coast and 6pm Proper Real English Time. The link for the sale hasn’t been released yet but make no mistake, we’ll be posting it her when it’s been revealed on the Funko social media: Twitter and Facebook.

In fact, we’ll edit it, ri-iiiiiiiiight abouttttttttt… HERE.

The doors to the event will open on the night at 6.45pm, with all the fun and games (literally!), kicking off around 8.30pm – if you’ve been before, you’ll know that the whole she-bang is geared towards you bonding with your fellow bobbleheads so think big tables, plenty of group interaction and lots of banter and bombast. And corn, let’s not forget about lots and lots of corn. (Nope, we don’t have a clue, either.)

Please read our policies ahead of time so you aren’t faced with any surprises when you go to purchase your tickets or arrive at the event!

This year promises to be even bigger and better than ever before! You’ll spend the evening at the Grand Hyatt Manchester Seaport Ballroom in lovely San Diego with your fellow Funatics, Funko employees and special guests. Everyone will enjoy food, drinks and a full evening of entertainment hosted by Funko’s very own Brian Mariotti and Mike Becker.

There will be prizes galore, contests, corn, and a whole lot more. And, of course, every attendee receives a legendary Funko “Box Of Fun” just for being part of this annual event. Each attendee also receives two drink tickets, heavy appetizers and enough memories to last three lifetimes.

Doors will open at 6:45pm and the evening’s entertainment starts at 8:30pm. Please line up with who you want to sit with- you will be assigned to a table at check-in!

In an effort to allow as many different people to attend as possible, there is a limit of TWO (2) tickets per customer. Only ONE “Box Of Fun” will be given to each attendee. One ticket, one attendee, one box! Repeated for emphasis: one person cannot redeem multiple tickets for multiple boxes of fun!

Tickets will go on sale on:
Wednesday, May 17th – 10:00 AM Pacific Time: 
$140.00 per ticket (+$8.69 fee)

Keep an eye on our Twitter & Facebook for the link!!

Tickets will go fast! Be prepared!



Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

No. While we do not recommend this event for small children, children are welcome. However, every attendee will require a ticket, regardless of age.

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

No. The ticket buyer must use their own ticket. It is not permissible to sell your ticket. Any attempts at selling tickets will result in cancellation of said ticket. If after you purchase, you are no longer able to attend, you may request a refund and return your ticket.

Why can’t I change the name on my second ticket?

Tickets will only have the name of the buyer. The second ticket is looked at as a “+1” of the buyer!

Why is the limit only 2 tickets per customer?

Our ticketing limitations are designed in order to allow as many different people to attend Fundays as possible. We want to make sure we spread the tickets out and don’t want people purchasing blocks of tickets. We reserve the right to cancel any attempts to purchase more than two tickets.

Why is the policy only ONE box of Box of Fun per customer?

We don’t want people to purchase multiple tickets just to collect multiple boxes. Instead, we want those tickets to go to other fans who would like to actually attend the event. The idea is to come to the event and experience Fundays together – not just collect the free stuff!

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No, but we recommend it.

The name on the registration/ticket doesn’t match the attendee. Is that okay?

NO. We will check ID at the door and the name must match the ticket. You can only redeem ONE ticket per customer. If you have multiple tickets, you will not receive multiple boxes of fun. Only ONE Box of Fun will be given to each ticket-holder.

I don’t have tickets for SDCC. Can I still attend Fundays?

Yes! You do not need to be a SDCC badge holder to be able to purchase Fundays tickets.

Will you be selling exclusives at Fundays?

No, Fundays is a celebration! We will not be selling any items at the event.

How will seating at Fundays work this year?

Seating will be done differently this year! Please be in line with who you want to sit with and check in together – groups of 10 are not necessary but ideal! You will be assigned to a table at check-in. You will not be able to save seats at your table for someone who is arriving later. You may be able to trade with other willing attendees, but the best chance of sitting with who you want to is to arrive together!

We can’t wait to see you there!!
