Ticket prices continue to soar for UGA's national title game

Ticket prices continue to soar for UGA's national title game”

Georgia will face either the Alabama Crimson Tide or Clemson Tigers, both of whom have fan bases that travel well.

The title game's location in Atlanta, just 72 miles from Georgia's campus, is one of the big draws.

ESPN's Darren Rovell tweeted that Stubhub was down for 30 minutes, and the cheapest ticket was $2,480 when the site started working again. What will make that game even more incredible is that the Bulldogs will be playing in-state at Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Compare that to previous year, when Rovell was writing in similar disbelief about tickets selling for an average price of $978 for those looking to get into Clemson and Alabama's championship rematch.

Georgia fans were on cloud nine after the Bulldogs won their College Football Playoff semifinal, and crashed StubHub trying to get their hands on national championship game tickets.

The game will be against either Clemson or Alabama.

"When you eliminate the need for flights and hotels for a large chunk of fans", Slingland said, "you can end up with these sort of ticket prices".

The win sends the Bulldogs to the national championship game against Alabama.

The surge in pricing may seem obscene on the surface, but it's also not that hard to believe, as Georgia makes for something of a flawless storm when it comes to ticket sellers.

Not all fans at the championship game will have to pay the inflated secondary-market prices, of course.
