A SPORTS WORLD GONE MAD

By Marc Lawrence, PlaybookSports.com— The price of tickets to this year’s College Football Playoff games could empty some pockets.

Front Office Sports report 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. Talk about inflation crossing over into college football
