As previously reported here, there is a great deal of interest from our fans for tickets to the Georgia Bulldogs vs. Arizona State Sun Devils game in Tempe. So the question immediately becomes, how do I get tickets? Well...Kanu (Dodgy at Best blog), and I have done the research and gotten the 411.
On August 13, 2008 Arizona State announced that they had sold out of single game tickets for UGA vs. Arizona State. They might have some additional tickets go on sale on Sept. 9th. In the meantime, the info below which has strikethru text is out of date. If you want tickets for Georgia vs. ASU, you have 3 choices:
- 1. You can scalp on gameday.
2. You can order via Stubhub or some other after market service (prices are very reasonable)
3. You can wait til Sept. 9th and hope that there are some single game tickets available.
Why wait when you can get them now:
You need not wait in limbo while air fares rise and hotel rooms get booked up. You can get your ASU vs. UGA tickets today. The Arizona State ticket office is currently selling season tickets for as low as $99.00 per season ticket book (no contribution required). The season ticket package does include the Georgia game.
ASU Ticket Office:
Hours: 12 pm - 8 pm EST
No online sales
According to the ASU web site and ticket office, the UGA fans will be sitting in Sections 231-236. There will be a very limited number of seats available in the lower level, but those lower level seats are reserved for very high roller UGA contributors.
as cheaper version of Georgia Tech's
three game "mini-packs."
Last year, ASU waited until August 13th to make single game tickets available. Why wait until air fare is through the roof in order to save $44.00 on the ticket price?
But wait...it gets better:
According to the ASU ticket sales rep that Kanu talked to, you can return your unused tickets to ASU (obviously in advance), and they will donate your unused tickets a local charity such as the Boys Club of Tempe. You will then get a charitable gift receipt for your tickets. Not too shabby.
Your best bet for tickets near the UGA sections are to start with Section 230 and work your way over from there.
Some additional info on Tickets that I gathered from ASU. (Note: as you can see from the chart above, none of these seats appear to be located near the ASU student section).
-- $99.00 per Season Ticket book
-- Sections 212-221 and 227-230.
-- Section 230 is the closest to the UGA section. Obviously, The more tickets we buy, the bigger the UGA section becomes.
-- Most sections have roughly 38 rows.
EndZone Upper Level Tickets (CHAIR BACKS)
-- $99.00 per Season Ticket book
-- Sections 222-226
Sideline Upper Level Tickets (CHAIR BACK)
-- $149.00 per Season Ticket book
-- Sections 201-211
-- Some of these seats / sections have Chair backs and Arm Rests.
Assuming constant demand and a more limited supply, you would expect the cut off to balloon upwards. If the demand is 25% less than a normal big game, the cut off might be the same as normal. But to expect the cut off to get down to UF levels (7k or so) seems very far fetched.
If you want to attend this game, tickets should NOT be the reason you say "no. " They are in cheap and ready supply. Separately, Kanu and I are both putting together some hotel and food recommendations. The only tricky thing logistically about the trip will be getting out of Phoenix on Sunday.
To buy the tickets, call (480) 727-0000 Mon-Friday 12-8:00 pm EST. Go Dawgs and see you in Tempe.
