Hey, what do you know… Bill Hancock’s talking.
How much would you pay to watch the first College Football Playoff championship game?
Try $650 for club seats in AT&T Stadium. Try what is believed to be the highest-priced face-value ticket in the sport’s history.
While CFP championship game ticket pricing has been out there for a while it’s not widely known. And there are qualifiers.
The $650 price for the CFP championship game on Jan. 12 is only for the stadium’s 15,000 high-end club seats. The general seating in the 80,000-seat stadium is $450. Student seating and standing room is $200. The participating schools will each receive approximately 20,000 seats for the game. Last year’s final BCS championship game tickets topped off at $385.
“The price is a bargain for the most important, most talked-about, most in-demand college game of the season,” CFP executive director Bill Hancock said in an email, “arguably the most compelling game ever.”
Who’d want to argue with the über flack? Not the little guy who can’t wait to swing that kind of jack.
Instead, let’s hear an obvious pick from The Who.
