Get your G-Day Tickets in Advance


I'm personally expecting a big G-Day crowd for a couple of reasons:
    1. The program's incredible momentum and excitement.
    2. The game doesn't conflict with The Masters for the first time in many years.
    3. We have a full roster of healthy linemen on both sides of the ball. We can actually have a compelling game.
    4. Caleb King Curiosity
In past years, it has been a real hassle getting ticketed and into the stadium in a timely fashion. I'm expecting this year's G-Day to be a complete zoo in that regard. Luckily, the Athletic Department is making it easy to buy your tickets in advance online.
ATHENS, Ga. --- General Admission Tickets for the 2008 G-Day football game are on sale online via . This year’s spring football game is scheduled for Saturday, April 5th at Sanford Stadium. All online orders will be mailed out the week of March 24.

Anybody know what the age limits on tickets are? I have a two year old that, if the weather is nice I'd like to take. Is there a minimum age on tickets. I guess it doesn't really matter, but I don't want to buy her a ticket if I don't have to.

I think even infants require a ticket. That's true for the regular season at least.

Ticket long as the Dawgs win.


Sounds like the old athletic department wants to draw some interest on the ticket money...hmmm, first step to Felton's buyout?

Im pretty sure all the money goes to a local charity.

G-Day tickets in advance? Whatever. They may in fact have a larger crowd for those reasons, but it won't be 90,000 strong to necessitate buying tickets early.

Besides, it'll be live on CSS.

Anon - there are normally around a dozen people taking tickets for 19,000 people. And the lines are ridiculous.

If we grow the attendees to 35,000 and even if we double the won't get into the game before halftime.

Any idea if CSS will carry the game ?

OK,, if people buy their tickets in advance, that means they can bypass the people taking the tickets at the gate? Sounds like that is where the problem is... perhaps the AA needs to recruit more people to accept tickets. People have to buy tickets in advance for the regular season games with a lot more ticket people at the gates, and I don't see that speeding up the wait time to get into the stadium. That's all I'm sayin'.

ESPN is carrying the game.
