Anyone interested in going to the College Football National Championship? Apparently not in the Santa Clara area. Ticket prices for the big game are absolutely PLUMMETING.
After reporting Wednesday that many tickets were available for under $400, the prices just keep dropping as we get closer and closer to the big game.
The get-in price for the national championship game is now just $135 on the secondary market, according to TicketIQ, well below the face-value price of $475. The get-in price on the secondary market for last year's national championship game was $1,750. https://t.co/vF42fVaBde— Arash Markazi (@ArashMarkazi) January 3, 2019
Go on StubHub right now and buy some tickets. Seriously, Levi's Stadium would appreciate it.
You can get into the game for the affordable price of $135 on the secondary market. That's $1,615 cheaper than the get-in price on the secondary market last year for the Bama-Georgia showdown!
Cheapest secondary market tickets for the 2018 #NationalChampionship between Georgia and Alabama in Atlanta were around $1,700 hours before the game. Five days out from the 2018 game, @StubHub has tickets for as low as $140 (before fees).— Mark J. Burns (@markjburns88) January 3, 2019
This isn't just your run-of-the-mill football game folks. This is the College Football National Championship. And if you didn't believe in Bama-Clemson fatigue before, perhaps you do now. Or perhaps you simply believe that the title game should never take place in a random environment devoid of any college football relevance.
If you don't have any plans Jan. 7, booking a trip to Santa Clara might not be so crazy after all. The best of the best in the college football world are about to face off in less than a week, but the people of California couldn't be less interested.
Maybe it's because of the blowouts in the semifinal matchups, or because this is the fourth meeting between these two programs in the College Football Playoff era, but either way, the market is indicative of the low interest in the game.
