Ticket Prices Dropping For FCS Title Game, Thanks To SRO

FRISCO, Texas — It won’t cost an arm and a leg to see North Dakota State and James Madison play for a championship.

A flood of cheaper tickets have hit the Football Championship Subdivision title game market, thanks to the sale of standing room only tickets early this week.

The game is Saturday at 11 a.m. at Toyota Stadium.

Standing room only tickets are selling for as low as $52 each on the NCAA Ticket Exchange. There are dozens of SRO tickets available.

That, and game day getting nearer, appears to be driving down the price of regular seats, too.

There are seats available as cheap as $100 each, according to listings on the NCAA Ticket Exchange.

Shortly after NDSU beat Sam Houston State to qualify for the title game, tickets were expensive on the secondary market. The lowest asking price was $300 per ticket; the most expensive was $700 per ticket. A pair of tickets with a $500 each asking price, however, sold for $215 apiece. It’s likely prices will drop as the game nears.

Ticket broker StubHub also had many tickets listed for sale, ranging from $315 apiece to $1,500 for an NCAA hospitality wristband.

The game is a sellout, with a crowd of about 18,000 expected. NDSU athletic director Matt Larsen said the school’s allotment of 5,500 was sold out. The school received 8,500 requests for tickets, Larsen said.
