If you are a fan of the Alabama Crimson Tide or Clemson Tigers and were hoping to secure a ticket for the national championship game on Monday night, you were in luck.
For this year’s game, the average ticket was priced at $675 — the cheapest in a decade, according to ESPN.
Not only did research on the secondary market show the low pricing of tickets for Monday night’s game at University of Phoenix Stadium, it showed that Clemson fans are expected to greatly outnumber the Crimson Tide.
“Clemson-dedicated sections traded at a 30 percent premium to the Alabama ones,” Patrick Ryan, co-owner of The Ticket Experience, said. “Usually by this point, fans have started taking the cost savings and sat on the opponent’s side rather than pay up to be on their side. That they’re willing to do this shows that they’re willing to pay to have the best game-watching experience possible.”
There are still a number of seats available and there will likely be some good deals with kickoff right around the corner.
It’s better late than never, so scoop up a last-minute ticket if you’re interested in seeing the big game.
