Average Price Of Iron Bowl Tickets Nears Record

Alabama_Top_25_2012Buying tickets to the Iron Bowl could be causing budget problems for Alabama and Auburn fans.

With No. 1 Alabama undefeated and in-state rival Auburn ranked fourth at a surprising 10-1, the cost of tickets is approaching record levels for this game.

The median price for an Iron Bowl ticket sold on StubHub is roughly $300, the same price fans paid to see one of the season’s most highly anticipated NFL matchups — Sunday night’s game between Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos and Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.

The current get-in price is hovering at around $360, and it’s being propped up by local corporate interests.
