Lots of tickets still available for the national championship game

Fans wanting to cheer on Georgia or Alabama alongside more than 70,000 of their closest friends still have plenty of options. Online brokers are still showing a good bit of inventory.

Tickets aren’t a steal by any stretch but haven’t climbed back to the eye-popping levels they started at shortly after Georgia’s historic Rose Bowl victory.

NEW: Plenty of rooms, but Atlanta hotels are holding out for top dollar

At the moment Vivid Seats has seats starting at $1,393. Earlier this week the lowest price was more than $1,900. Stubhub’s lowest priced offering is $1,428.

The biggest bargain, relatively speaking, appears to be in the suite seats. A private, 30-person suite on the 40-yard line was listed for $196,473 – $6,549 per spot – earlier this week. At the moment there’s a 22-person suite going for $87,113 – $3,959 each.

And if you don’t mind a ticket in a shared suite, that sort of real estate can be had for $37,50 at SuiteHop.

The so called windfall the Atlanta Visitors Center claims to get from this game of a 100 million is just that HOT AIR,  as are most claims made to justify spending taxpayer money to build stadiums and promote such games. Who in their right mind would pay thousands to come and see this game when 90% of both schools fan bases live within 300 miles of Atlanta, a one day drive.  I bet the Hotels don't see much money from this one.  LOL

What's even sadder than all of these expensive ticket prices is the the potential revenue that the city of Atlanta misses out on by having two local teams.  Great for those schools and fans, but not the economic boon other cities get by hosting the national championship with multiple night hotel stays and meals in restaurants for two or three nights.

Does anybody else think those prices are obscene?

Major college sporting events (like the pros) have become the exclusive domain of the super rich.

I can buy a nice TV and two lazyboy chairs for the price of a cheap ticket to this game.

I’ll read about it in my AJC in the bye and bye....the score will stay the same as it was for those who paid the biggest bucks.
