SEC Football Tickets Getting Pricier and Harder to Score

Tools

By Ellis Eskew

Football season is just about a month away.
But if you're trying to score tickets, you may have noticed it's getting more and more difficult.

As you may expect, tickets are going fast for the 2013 SEC football season, especially for the University of Alabama.
Right now, the average price for a ticket is about 225 dollars. And season tickets can run from 780 dollars or more.
 

We asked some of you on our Facebook page what you think of paying these prices, or would you just rather stay at home?


Jo Ann Dunn  says, "Yes, it's tv for me! My house, my food. My clean bathroom and I have parking!! Roll Tide Roll!"


LaTasha Davis tells us,  "Don't get me wrong I love my TEAM but I would never pay that much just to see them play... When I can see them on t.v. for free!!! #RTR"

Jason Hayes says, "I have no problem paying the school face value for the tix, but I'm not about to pay some ripoff artist 4X the face value. There needs to be more safeguards in place to keep professional scalpers from hoarding tix"

Christine Turner tells us, "I'm beginning to think these institutions are more about taking care of the alumni than serving the public. Should at least be a lottery for a few thousand tickets so the little guys have a shot at a ticket."

For Auburn,  season tickets are running about 500 dollars or more. And the average ticket to a conference game is about 100 bucks.
