SDCC 2024 Returning Registration Sale Date Announced

by Transmute Jun

Fans of San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) are already planning for next year’s convention, which will be held July 25-28 (with Preview Night on July 24). After hinting at badge sales for a few weeks, Comic Con International (CCI) has finally announced the sale date for SDCC 2024 Returning Registration: Saturday, November 4th at 9 am Pacific time.

The Returning Registration sale is for those who attended the 2023 show on a paid general attendee badge. Those who qualify for Returning Registration will see a notice when they login to their Member ID accounts. Attendees who do not qualify for the Returning Registration will be eligible for Open Registration, as long as they have a valid Member ID account. The Open Registration sale date has not yet been announced, but it is typically held a few weeks after Returning Registration.

In 2023, CCI attempted to have attendees login to their Member ID accounts and access the sale from there. Unfortunately, there were significant technical problems and that aspect of the sale had to be scrapped. However, CCI has had a year to address these issues, and is returning to this approach for the 2024 badge sales. As such, fans should make sure that they are able to login to their Member ID accounts before the sale.

Badge prices have seen a slight increase, and are as follows for the 2024 show:

BADGE TYPE                      ADULT   JUNIOR / U.S. MILITARY / SENIOR*
Wednesday Preview Night   $59.00   $30.00
Thursday                           $79.00   $40.00
Friday                               $79.00   $40.00
Saturday                           $79.00   $40.00
Sunday                             $54.00   $27.00
All purchases are subject to a $15 handling fee per member.

The total for an adult 4 day badge (including handling fee) will be $306, while a 4 day plus Preview Night badge will be $365.
