Which top 25 college football team has opening game for under $10 per ticket? We ranked the games in order from the least expensive tickets, and there are great ones to choose from.
College football is one of the most popular sports, but there have been some recent articles talking about the decline in attendance in college football – here and here. The price of tickets, or more accurately the price of season tickets, was listed as one of the top reasons for the decline. While ticket prices for the marquee games are certainly high in many cases, there are still PLENTY of college football games where the price is less than a ticket to the movies.
At TicketCity, we have been selling college football tickets for nearly 30 years. We examined prices for the 2019 home opener of all teams in the recent Coaches Poll Top 25. The results (below) show some really good opportunities for fans. The cheapest ticket started at $7.00* for the Northwestern home opener against UNLV. Right behind the Wildcats were three popular SEC teams who you can purchase tickets to their home openers for less than $10.00 per ticket. That’s quite an amazing opportunity to be able to attend a game at Jordan Hare, Tiger Stadium or Kyle Field for less than the cost of a 12-pack of Miller Lite.
