Ticket Sales Slow For ACC Championship, With Prices Among Lowest For Major Title Games
Published December 4, 2013
SOUTHERN CHARM: In K.C., Tod Palmer notes several secondary ticket web sites "peg the average price" for Saturday's Missouri-Auburn SEC Championship at the Georgia Dome "at north of $400." Data from RazorGator showed that the average price for the game is $499, marking an 11% increase over last week and 9% higher than last year's Georgia-Alabama matchup. SeatGeek pegs the average ticket price at $410, the "most for any Missouri game" the site has tracked. But that price is 9% lower than tickets to last Saturday's Alabama-Auburn game, and 10% lower than last year's SEC Championship Game. Ticket prices for this year's SEC Championship on SeatGeek "more than double the Big Ten Championship ($204), while the Pac-12 ($109) and ACC ($70) title games lag further behind." TicketCity shows that the"average ticket price for the SEC Championship game is $440, "which more than doubles the Big Ten ($210) and dwarfs the Pac-12 ($107) and ACC ($73)" (K.C. STAR, 12/4).
