Alabama & Florida Meet in Most Expensive Conference Championship Game This Season

Title talks are heating up across the college football circuit, and this weekend will usher in a bevy of conference championship games throughout the country. Unsurprisingly, it is the SEC Championship Game that’s generating the biggest ticket demand on the secondary market, as undefeated Alabama clashes with Florida looking to claim a third straight SEC title on Saturday.

On TicketIQ, a live event search engine that pools data and tickets from over 90 percent of the secondary market, SEC Championship Game tickets are currently averaging $257. While that is the most expensive conference championship game in college football this season, it will actually serve as the cheapest SEC title game since 2010, when TicketIQ began tracking resale ticket data. If looking to just get past the gates at Georgia Dome this weekend the cheapest tickets are now priced from $84 each.


Georgia won’t be the only site commanding big ticket demand this weekend. The Big Ten Championship Game, which will be played between Penn State and Wisconsin at Lucas Oil Stadium, is the second most expensive conference title game this season. Big Ten Championship Game tickets on the secondary market now own a $141 average and $57 get-in price. Like the SEC game, it will also be the cheapest Big Ten title game this decade.

Moving back down south, Orlando’s Camping World Stadium will host this season’s ACC Championship Game between Clemson and Virginia Tech. The first time the game will be held in Orlando in its 12-year existence, ACC Championship Game tickets own a $100 average and $26 get-in price. Clemson is searching for its second straight championship after storming to the National Championship last season.

Out west, this year’s Pac-12 Championship Game will showcase Washington and Colorado in one of two Friday night games. Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara will be the hosting site, and tickets are currently posting a resale average of $93 with the cheapest tickets starting from $21 each. It will be the cheapest conference championship game to get into this season, though the SWAC Championship Game between Grambling State and Alcorn State and C-USA Game between Western Kentucky and Louisiana Tech own a lower resale average ($69 and $53, respectively).
