As the media have been reminding everyone, Georgia’s football squad will play its most important game in nearly 30 years Saturday. So it comes as no surprise that the price of admission to the game in the Georgia Dome has hit nosebleed levels.
The latest check at online ticket sales site StubHub! shows tickets going for as much as $2,500 and as low as $315.
The high end gives you a spot in the Verizon Wireless Club in section 247, at midfield. Nice seats, to be sure.
As for the low end, that’ll put you in row 12 of section 336, up in the upper end zone where the game is just a rumor.
Nearly 2,600 tickets were available as of Monday morning, with prices running in between those two extremes, so pick your poison.
Incidentally, if you have a hankering to see a big-time sports event this week, and don’t much care what game or what teams are involved, you might consider taking in the Atlanta Hawks. They’re playing the Charlotte Bobcats this Wednesday night at Philips Arena, and there are plenty of good seats available _ at much, much lower prices.
Upper bowl baseline seats, in fact, can be had for less than a buck, offering yet another example of the laws of supply and demand.
