    One other difference that decreased demand was that the Rose Bowl has over 100K seats..

    I wish this game was in Pasadena. I went last time. Great place to go in January.

    For that game, my StubHub ticket on the goal line, row 23 cost over $1200. I bought in mid December and prices to my knowledge never dropped.

    Re: 2013 BCS Championship Game Tickets

    Size of the stadium really doesn't matter that much. In 2009 Alabama received an alotment of 19,000 tickets, last year we received 17,000. The biggest factor is the logistics of the trip. New Orleans was easy for everyone, where Pasadena isn't drivable for most people. The thing now is even though there are those that won't want to make the trip to Miami due to the 11-12 hour drive, they are still going to order their tickets to sell them in the secondary market. That is the reason you are starting to see many people selling there tickets right now without having the seat location. I believe last year, they made facilty/graduate students pick their tickets up in New Orleans to try to prevent reselling. They were just picking them up and selling them down there without going to the game. Until they come up with some system that will decrease reselling, the problem is going to continue to get worse. Put it this way, if I were to get tickets this year, I could sell two for 3K. Pocket the 600.00 it cost me to get them, then donate the rest to the Crimson Tide Foundation. $2400.00 @ 3pts per $100 would earn me an additional 72 points. Do that every year we go, I would be getting up there in no time.

    Re: 2013 BCS Championship Game Tickets

    I was able to land 2 for the 2009 trip to Pasadena through TP after the second round of offerings, missed out on last year, and hoping I land 2 this time around. My point total in '09 was about 130, I'm now up over 225 so here's to hoping!!!

    when I saw Bruce Springsteen 10 years ago all tickets were Will Call only. Once you picked up with ID and CC used, they walked you into the arena. I know a ticket broker who was ....ed b/c they were shut out... Would not be hard to encrypt a name and address into the ticket to where when it is scanned you have to show photo ID if your ID does not match, you don't get in...

    If I had to pay for a ticket would've been about $1500 more... Believe it or not airfare is under $300 from Dallas. Hotels can be had for a reasonable price if your willing to stay N of Ft. Lauderdale. Boca may be about an hour drive but, worth it IMO.

    2013 BCS Championship Game Tickets

    Not to mention if you have friends or family living in the area, stay with them and defray the cost of your trip.

    Re: 2013 BCS Championship Game Tickets

    Does anyone know the face value of the tickets? I would think you have different price points, but what do a majority of the tickets go for, before the secondary market starts to set new values?

    Re: 2013 BCS Championship Game Tickets

    IIRC, the face value is $325-$350 from the info received from Tide Pride...

    I hear folks will find out about tickets on Wed - not sure if that is true or not. AAA Travel has a pretty awesome package with hotel, transfers, pre-game party, etc and Charter Air from Birmingham. If you don't get a ticket - tickets are available too!

    Re: 2013 BCS Championship Game Tickets

    Anyone get an email from Tide Pride yet about tickets? Notifications are supposed to be made no later than tomorrow based on the email that was sent out Sunday evening...
