Georgia tickets against Kentucky are least expensive of season
A 27-3 loss against Florida last weekend was the third in four games for Georgia. The losses have dramatically decreased the demand for the next Bulldogs’ home game at Sanford Stadium, according to TiqIQ.
Georgia’s next matchup comes against Kentucky and is one of only two home games left on the schedule. While not a premium game, ticket prices on the secondary market have taken a significant hit following the loss to Florida. The game against the Wildcats this weekend is now the least expensive of the season, and the third least expensive home game for the Bulldogs since 2010, when TiqIQ started keeping track of secondary market ticket data.
The current average price for the game is $78.33 and the get-in price is $22. Only two early season games in 2012 have presented cheaper prices on the secondary market, a Sept. 1 game against Buffalo ($69.18) and a Sept. 15 game against Florida Atlantic ($66.12). Both of those games were under different circumstances, however, as Georgia was No. 6 in the AP Poll entering the 2012 season.
Across the 2015 season, Georgia tickets have an average price of $182.84 on the secondary market. Only a late-September game against the Southern Jaguars also had an average price under $100 this year. That came in a game the Bulldogs handily won, 48-6.
While ticket prices for this weekend’s Kentucky game continue to fall, the performance has yet to impact prices for Georgia’s last home game against Georgia Southern. The game is still slightly below the overall season average, however. Georgia-Georgia Southern tickets currently have an average price of $172.30 with a get-in price of $59. The Bulldogs and Eagles last met in 2012, also at Sanford Stadium, and that game had an average price of $121.49.
