High Price For College Football
No matter who you root for, Alabama and Auburn fans are willing to roll out the wallets to see the tide or tigers.
Sports Analyst John Longshore said, "We saw that in BCS championship tickets with Auburn and Alabama over the last four years. $2,000 a ticket people weren't thinking twice about paying it they were going to be there"
Now websites like eBay and StubHub are listing Alabama tickets for more than 10-thousand dollars. Longshore said, "Nick Saban has certainly made the ticket prices rise. It is a hot commodity people want to watch Alabama football."
In fact season tickets from his first season were $345, now they are up to $405. But, you're going to have to wait a while to get that price.
Longshore said, "There's over 20-25,000 people on the waiting list at Alabama for tickets."
And with the convenience of watching the game in the privacy of your own home, Longshore said, "if things head south for teams, will fans be more apt to stay at home than spend the money to go to the games. But, right now I don't see that being an issue at all."
If you're a big spender then feel free to head out to the most anticipated game in College Station. The average ticket price for the Texas A&M Alabama game is more than $850.
