Despite a lot of uncertainty about the team with a new offensive coordinator and new quarterback, UGA’s football ticket prices have risen considerably on the secondary market.
According to TiqIQ the average resale market price for Georgia football tickets at Sanford Stadium this season is $235.47, which is the second most expensive ticket behind Notre Dame’s leading $332.09 average at home in 2015. The Bulldogs have climbed up one spot from last season on the TiqIQ Top 25 from last season, which tracks the most expensive tickets in college football, and the average ticket price has increased 12.5% from 2014’s $209.27 average.
UGA has a new offensive coordinator in Brian Schottenheimer, and his offense will be led by Greyson Lambert, the transfer quarterback from UVA.
This season, Bulldogs will host their top-priced home game against Alabama on Oct. 3. Georgia vs Alabama tickets currently own a secondary market average of $568.35, 141.3% above the season average, and the get-in price starts at $272. The two schools have notable history together; over 66 meetings dating back to 1895, the Crimson Tide have the competitive edge at 37-25-4.
Last season, a Nov. 15 matchup with Auburn served as the most expensive game of the season in Athens. That game had a secondary market average of $362.24, marking a 56.8% year-over-year increase on average between Georgia’s top-priced games at Sanford Stadium.
Prices will drop off considerably following Alabama’s top-priced visit in October. The Bulldogs welcome the South Carolina Gamecocks in their second most expensive home game on September 19. Georgia vs South Carolina tickets on TiqIQ now average $261.87, 11.2% above the season average, and the cheapest ticket is $92.
Conversely, a Sept. 26 game against Southern is currently the most affordable game of the season on the Bulldogs’ schedule.
