Tickets for last year's national title game approached Super Bowl prices. Alabama vs. Georgia in Atlanta was just the perfect scenario for rates to skyrocket.
It was almost too good to be true.
Monday’s Alabama-Clemson game at Levi Stadium isn't causing the same fire. And the ticket prices reflect that.
Instead of meeting in Atlanta, the two southeast teams will fly across the country to meet in California’s Bay Area for the 2019 College Football Playoff championship.
Where the cheapest seat to last year’s title game hovered in the $1,700 range, this annual playoff rematch quite lower.
Tickets are going for under $300 a piece.
An upper-corner seat in Santa Clara’s Levi Stadium is the lowest found online at StubHub on Tuesday morning. Ticketmaster’s resale page had seats for just over $300.
Alabama and Clemson have met in each of the last 3 previous College Football Playoffs with Alabama winning two out of three.
