INDIANAPOLIS — Tickets for the College Football Playoff National Championship are selling for as cheap as $500 for upper deck seats. the closer to the field you get, the more expensive the tickets get.
There have been some complaints on social media from people planning to attend the game in Indianapolis this coming Monday that it is quite expensive to attend this year’s title game. If you are miffed about the ticket prices, your beef is with the College Football Playoff organization and not the city.
“The tickets are all owned and controlled by the College Football Playoff and the organization itself,” said Mark Howell, chairman of the Indy College Football Playoff Host Committee. “The host committee is not involved in selling tickets or ticket revenue.”
Howell says Indy will be a “bargain” compared to some of the other College Football Playoff games he’s attended in the past.
Websites like hotelplanner.com and hotelguide.com have hotel rooms in Indianapolis charging anywhere from $150 to $300 a night depending on which hotel you look at. Hotels, bars, restaurants, and other forms of entertainment are just a snapshot of the economic impact the city will feel from the big game.
“The investment comes in many forms,” Howell said. “We have almost 100 vendors that have descended on the city. The stage on Monument Circle for example. Those vendors come in and hire local workers to put those stages up.”
Then there are the volunteers. Howell says they have some 2,000 volunteers that will be out and about throughout the city between Thursday and Tuesday of next week to help people out.
