The price of tickets to this year’s College Football Playoff games could empty some pockets. 

The most expensive tickets to this year’s Peach Bowl — the playoff semifinal between Georgia and Ohio State at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Saturday — are going for north of $50,000, with the average ticket price at $697 and the starting price at around $495.

The Fiesta Bowl, which will see Michigan and TCU face off in the other playoff semifinal, is a much cheaper game to catch. Tickets start at $390 and go up to around $4,000.

Fans wanting to go to the national championship at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, on Jan. 9 will have to shell out significantly more.

  • The current average price for a game ticket is $3,000.
  • Some reports suggest fans can find tickets as low as $1,180.

Playoff Presence

In the next few years, college football fans will likely have a much better chance to attend playoff games.

The CFP announced Dec. 1 that it would expand to 12 teams for the 2024-25 season. The first round will be played at home sites, the New Year’s Six bowls will rotate quarterfinals and semifinals, and the national championship game will take place a week later than usual.
