The college football community got what they wanted, the BCS is gone and they’re beginning a new playoff system. The inaugural title game will be played at AT&T Stadium in Dallas in January of 2015. According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, tickets are already really expensive if you want to go.
The cheapest ticket is $1,899:
The cheapest premium seat available through either company for the 2015 title game, which will be played Jan. 12 in AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, is $1,899. The seat, in the corners of the top level of the stadium where the Cowboys play, comes with a three-hour pregame hospitality event, a full premium menu and top-shelf bar, and a $50 merchandise voucher.
The most expensive ticket is going for $3,899:
The most expensive ticket is a seat in a suite located between the 20-yard lines, with hospitality, food, bar, gift bag and postgame field access, for $3,899 each. Options that include a three-night stay in a premium Dallas-area hotel drive the cost up to more than $5,000.
And if the Stadium is filled to capacity, that could be a lot of cash coming in, via the Dallas Morning News:
Capacity at Cowboys Stadium can be as high as 105,000. If the cheapest ticket is $2,000 and the secondary market drives up ticket prices even further, total money spent by those attending the national championship could range up to $350 million spent collectively to attend the title game.
Needless to say, I’ll be at home watching on my couch.
