If Clemson football fans want to head to New Orleans for the National Championship game, they’re going to pay a pretty penny.
The Clemson football team will travel to New Orleans to take on the LSU Tigers in the National Championship game on Monday, January 13.
The Tigers (14-0) will be looking to complete yet another perfect season with a win over LSU, but they’ll certainly have their hands full as they look to defend one of the most prolific offenses in the history of College Football.
LSU (14-0) is currently listed as 5.5-point favorite, courtesy of the Action Network, and will be looking to finish off a magical year with a victory Monday night.
Because of the game being so close to Baton Rouge, it’s expected that LSU fans will flood the New Orleans area for the game, but tickets prices are trending downwards.
Currently, ticket prices for this Clemson-LSU match-up are listed as the fourth-highest in the history of the National Championship game. That’s extremely surprising for a game that’s so close to LSU.
That being said, Clemson football fans wanting to attend the game will still pay a pretty penny to get in the door.
According to StubHub, the get-in price for the game is listed at $933.85. That’s the price for a ticket in the upper deck of the end zone. As you move closer to the 50-yard line in the upper deck, prices increase depending on section and what row you select.
Currently, tickets right on the 50-yard line in the upper deck are listed from around $1,098-1,300 apiece.
If you want to sit in the lower deck, prices are obviously going to rise.
A ticket in the end zone in the lower deck is going for more than $2,600 and a ticket on the Clemson 50-yard line is going for more than $2,700 apiece.
In addition to ticket prices, Tiger fans will also have to pay for airfare or gas- depending on their travel decision- as well as a hotel room.
Traveling for the CFB Playoff can certainly add up after a while, but we know that the Clemson football faithful wouldn’t trade a thing when it comes to the success that the Tigers are having under Dabo Swinney.
