As if the 2017 season was not expensive enough, DawgNation is reporting that Georgia is set to increase prices for football tickets for the 2018 season.
Prices last season averaged $50 per home game, but will increase to an average of $66.42 per game.
The prices are based on a two tier system, with prices against tier one opponents at $75 per game and tier two opponents at $55 per game.
Athletic Director Greg McGarity stated part of the reason for the increase in prices is because Georgia wants “to make substantial adjustments to the compensation of our coaching staff.”
UGA saw an increase in football ticket revenue and football ticket contributions last year:
- $22.6 million in ticket revenue as of December 2017, an increase from $19.1 million the previous year. The school said “some additional” revenue will be reported in February “once all ticket sales for games have been finalized.”
- $9.5 million in ticket contributions compared to $4.3 million at the same point the previous year.
