Chip Towers, the AJC’s beat writer for UGA, may have said it best: If you thought it was hard for Georgia to make the SEC Championship game, try getting a ticket in the Georgia Dome for Saturday’s game.
It’s one of the most expensive non-Bowl tickets in college football.
On Sunday night, the cheapest ticket on StubHub.com was $320 – and that doesn’t include shipping and handling (It ends up being closer to $400).
And those were seats in the upper, upper section of the Georgia Dome and in the corner of the end zone. But at least you could say you were there, right?
What if you’re a Georgia fan, you think this is the first must-see game since the 1980 national championship, and you want tickets on the 50-yard line? Those will run you anywhere from $794 to $1,176. Maybe an early Christmas gift to yourself?
The winner of Alabama-Georgia will advance to the BCS championship game.
And if you’re confident of your team winning, whether it be Alabama or Georgia, and you want to see them play in the BCS Championship? You may get “deal” if you buy the tickets early. They are starting at $1,588 on StubHub. Tickets on the 50 are between $5,000 and $13,500.
Makes the SEC Championship game seem like a bargain, eh?
Tickets for the ACC Championship in Charlotte start at $4.50.
