It costs more to get a seat in the opener of the LSU football game than in recent years.
According to Ticket IQ, which tracks sales data in the second-hand market, as of Wednesday, when Tiger faced Mississippi, the average price of the building was one in $25,000, when it was $243.
However, resellers including StubHub, Seatgeek and VividSeats can still buy a large number of tickets, with prices as low as $61.
The two rows of 16 tickets returned from the LSU bench are priced at $4,800 each, but most of the lower face prices are between $1
Overall, ticket revenue for Saturday’s games increased by 247% from the Tigers opening a year ago, with an average of $70 per ticket.
The opening average secondary market price of #LSU with a capacity of 25,580 is $243/seat, an increase of 247% over last year. The cheapest ticket is $90 ($7 for the 2019 opener vs Georgia South).
The entry price for only 2 LSU games is $90+ (10/12 in Florida and 10/26 in Australia). https://t.co/Qv9QjIlWM1 pic.twitter.com/8kOM5TNXwf

The reasons for the increase in costs are obvious. The first is the coronavirus pandemic, which prompted officials to limit the capacity of Tiger Stadium to 25%, and caused the relative scarcity of tickets available for purchase.
Fans participating in the event will posture like a chess board, allowing existing small groups to sit together, otherwise, there must be at least 6 feet between them.
Imagine the chessboard of Tiger Stadium.
Other changes will also take effect, such as a concession agreement to keep away from society and at least not sell alcohol for corkscrews.
The game is also very important. Louisiana State University (LSU) started the 2019 season in Southern Georgia at the Sun Belt Conference. This year’s opener was initially set to play against UT-San Antonio at the US Conference, and then the pandemic prompted the Southeastern Conference to reset its team’s meeting schedule for only 10 games.
The change means that the first week will be a good start for LSU and the SEC for the rest of the meeting.
According to TicketIQ, the SEC also leads all conferences by the average secondary market price of all its games, which is $33 higher than the second highest conference.
The Southeastern Conference announced its policy, which outlines the requirements that must be met for the league’s football game.
LSU’s overall secondary market ticket price is US$204, slightly higher than the conference mark. By 2020, this ranks 9th among all teams, but is second only to the four SEC schools: Georgia, Auburn University, Alabama and Florida.
Georgia’s average total prize money is $359, ranking first.
With the advent of the season, the seats won in the LSU competition will not be cheap. As of Wednesday, the cheapest secondary market ticket for the Missouri Bengals on October 10 was $133, the lowest price of any game after the opening weekend.
The annual showdown with Alabama on November 14 topped the list-this year in Baton Rouge-the cheapest tickets currently are StubHub, Seatgeek or VividSeats, and the fare is $389.
