With Notre Dame beating USC on Saturday night and finishing up their undefeated regular season, BCS National Championship Ticket prices sky rocked over the weekend. The game will be played down in Miami so you factor in great weather and a big nation wide traveling base for the Irish and you can see why ticket prices on the secondary market have jumped up 30-40% in most cases in the last four days.
So fans of Alabama and Georgia and wondering what prices will be like once the SEC championship is over. Both of those teams have a great fan base that will travel especially to Miami as it’s within driving distance to keep some costs down. I could see buy ins for this game easily going over the $2000 for upper level seats in the corners. If you are hoping to score some seats in the lower level get ready to spend $2500-$3000 minimum no matter if it is Alabama or Georgia facing off against Notre Dame.
So what do I recommend if you want to attend the game? I would buy your tickets ASAP if you want tickets in hand before you head to Miami. However, if you want to gamble a little bit and buy outside the stadium right before kick off (miss the pregame festivities) you will be able to save a good chunk of money. Do your self a favor though, buy early and enjoy some time down in Sunny Florida and on South Beach. It’s going to be one hell of a game so make sure you are there to witness it.
