Auburn Ticket Prices Among Highest on the Internet

Like most schools, the need to keep up in the facilities race in recent years has caused the face value of Auburn’s home game tickets to go up. It’s been said that these hikes in prices have caused more and more people to stay at home and watch games on their HD-TV. That’s probably true, but according to TiqIQ, a ticket site that pulls prices from eBay, TicketsNow, etc. into one central location, prices around the internet are higher than ever.

Earlier today, TiqIQ released their Top 25 ticket prices by school. Auburn is ranked #21 nationally, 6th in the SEC, and 4th in the West in terms of the prices tickets being sold second-hand on the internet. The average Iron Bowl ticket price is the fifth highest in the nation at $481.66. The graphic below shows the average price of each Auburn home game this season. If you’d like to purchase any of these tickets, you can do so here.According to TiqIQ, Auburn’s year over year preseason avg has dropped 15.15%. I think that has something to do with the odd year home games being awful, meaning that people had to sell their tickets for less last year. That number will probably go up after this year. Anyway, what about you? Do you stay at home or give up the cash for tickets?

We have been season ticket holders since 1985, so until I get to where I can’t go anymore, I will just keep shelling out the money every spring. We love it so much, it doesn’t really matter.

The problem with this poll by TiqIQ is they used sources on the internet. I am sure many of those sites bought tickets and then raised the price to get their cut. I by me tickets from the University when they go on sale to the public and pay face value for each game and don’t pay more than $80-$85 for the big games (LSU, Georgia etc…) and less ($40-$45) for the non-conference games. I have all the home games for $450 total, an average of about $65 per game, which is must less than the TiqIQ average because of all the mark-ups that don’t necessarily make it back to the University.

Right, but that’s the point of these rankings and data. Those sites may bump it up to get a cut, but that’s the nature of second-hand ticket selling. Given that all tickets get this bump the comparison between teams and their non-face prices is fair.

I paid almost $300 for 2 Chick-fil-A kickoff game tickets in the nosebleeds, and over $750 for 4 GA game tickets in the upper decks from Stubhub. The ticket prices are getting ridiculous now. Next year we’re gonna get season tickets – it’d be cheaper, and we can sell the ones we don’t wanna go to.
