Ticket prices climbing for SEC Championship

alt


ATLANTA (AP) – Tickets to the SEC Championship football game in Atlanta next weekend continued to climb as Georgia and Alabama each demolished their archrivals. By early Saturday evening, after Georgia's 41-10 win over Georgia Tech and with Alabama leading Auburn 42-0, the cheapest ticket on StubHub.com was $324. That doesn't include shipping and handling. Those add-ons would push the price closer to $400. And don't think that would get you nice seats, either. That's just for seats just a few rows from the top of the Georgia Dome in the corner of the end zone. Upper deck seats on the 50-yard-line ran $500. Lower level seats close to midfield topped $1,000.
The game will be a de facto national semi-final, with the winner advancing to the BCS National Championship game in Miami. © 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.
