Since this is my first time, is there anything i should know in advance that will make purchasing tickets easier?
You cannot scalp tickets because the FFT makes you assign them to a persons name and they check them at the gates. That's why you use the RG/FFT site to buy and resell tickets. All the tickets on Viagogo are official and resold at face value - grounds passes are not 150€ that's reserved seating in the larger arenas on the final day - daily ground pass for the first week is closer to 24€
Prices for tickets start at 24€ then 38€ 50€ 76€ 54€ 72€ 90€ all the way to € 118€ during the fist week depending on which stadium and which category 1, 2, 3....etc you buy........you can google the 2013 ticket prices and look at the current FFT/RG site as they list all the possible pricing options.
