    At least in 105/107.

    Just got the email a few minutes ago.

    2019 price went from $325 to $430 in 2020. Ticket cost. Then add Tech Fund.

    There is an option to relocate to 300 section at MBS and reduce cost by $70.

    In 2013, I had seats in 106 - they were $270 plus Tech Fund.

    Not expressing an opinion here. Just stating facts on what I just read.

    Most of the body of your message is facts from the email but you also are stating some fake news as well (not facts). We had UGA last year at home but Clemson and Notre Dame next year... so 2 premium games instead of 1. You are basically saying that if the Notre Dame game was at Bobby Dodd, the season ticket price would be the exact same as 2019. Definitely not facts and not a great first post.

    Good. The program needs money. Heck of a home slate we have next year.

    Notre Dame is a premium game but it's not like it is replacing our G5 game. It's effectively replacing in the NC State game. We still have a 1AA and G5 opponent on the home schedule.

    The G5 opponent will likely be in the top 25.

    Added $45 per seat to my section but I do get a loyalty discount of $26 off each seat. TECH fund donation was reduced by half from $50 to $25. So, it's a wash.

    The total season ticket cost increased by that much. Like you said there are other factors but the MBS game is likely the biggest one.

    I get one home game next year (Wife approved the vacation slip) Which game should I chose? I want to check out MBS but I love Bobby Dood. Was thinking UCF, Clemson or ND.

    The demand of people who post here is probably pretty inelastic. I am skeptical that the same is true of our fan base writ large. Perhaps they’re expecting other teams to subsidize us, which is fine even if it looks bad. Long term, though, that’s going to further erode attendance.

    The cost I really don't care about but I do wish they would let us know the dates of the games . But the ACC will wait and wait.

    Doesn't the schedule typically get released in January?

    Last year schedule came out Jan 16th, year before it was Jan 17th.

    So should be out in next couple weeks.

    I don't do fake news.

    I wasn't saying anything other than $430 is $105 than $325. Thanks.

    There is no way to sugarcoat a steep increase like that.

    I hope the bean counters are smarter than me and the increase is enough to offset the loss in tickets sold.

    The best comparison is 2017 when we played Tennessee in the kickoff classic. That was coming off a season in which we beat UGA and won 9 games.

    Ain't it grand that even in a thread about ticket prices we can't resist picking a fight?

    Pray for the day when we can double the price of tix and people will be elated it wasn't more.

    Eat at freaking Wendy's one less time a week.
