Bowl prices fluctuate as fans gamble which game will feature their favorite team
AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE
)--As the college football regular season wraps up, fans are looking beyond the championships to the bowl games. Ticket prices for bowls have remained stable on TicketCity.com
for the last several weeks spurring many fans to take a chance and buy their tickets before the official bowl announcements on December 6th
“This year’s top 10 bowls list is typical of pre-bowl purchases,” says Rafael Rivas, Vice President of Sales for TicketCity. “Fans wanting a bowl experience regardless of which teams make it will buy according to bowl popularity.”
“Though the list resembles that of last year at this time, prices for the bowls will fluctuate greatly following the championship games on December 5th,” states Randy Cohen, CEO of TicketCity. “With the SEC Championship determining who will play in the BCS Championship, the average price for the BCS will increase depending on which team makes it. Because it’s been a while since Bama was involved in a BCS, prices will skyrocket following fan demand.”
As for online traffic and phone sales, Rivas explains, “we always receive a spike in online traffic the week before and especially the Saturday evening before bowl announcements as fans are speculating ticket prices. But fans really don’t start purchasing until the official announcements are made on Sunday.”
For those fans looking to go to a bowl, TicketCity presents the 2009 Bowl Challenge. Fans simply choose the bowl they would like to attend, choose the teams they think will make it to the bowl and they are entered to win those bowl tickets. “We created the contest to give fans the opportunity to experience a bowl game and be a part of the excitement surrounding the official announcements,” says Amy Carpenter, Vice President of Marketing for TicketCity.
