How To Find Discounted College Football Tickets & When Is The Best Time To Buy College Football Tickets?

To find the cheapest College Football tickets, it's important to check both the primary and secondary ticket markets. Based on the demand for a given even, resale marketplaces like TicketIQ may be more or less expensive than face value options available through primary ticketing platforms like Ticketmaster, Paciolan, AXS and SeatGeek. Rivalry games are typically the most expensive game, while games against lesser opponents are the best way to get to a game for cheap. Teams often adjust prices dynamically in-season, which can impact both face-value and resale ticket prices. For fans willing to make a commitment by purchasing season tickets, prices are typically 10%-20% below single-game face value prices. Also, in cases of lower-demand games that are not sold out, prices are usually cheapest closer to game day.

Where Are The Cheapest College Football Tickets At Most Venues?

If you are looking for the cheapest College Football tickets, the last 10 rows of the upper level are usually the least expensive for any college football game. Tickets behind the goals are typically cheaper than sections on the sidelines. For most CFB games tickets can be found for under $50, with some as low as $10 for the lowest-demand match-ups of the season. With that being said, at most CFB venues there are no bad locations to view a game. Even the most inexpensive seats still provide fans with a very enjoyable game experience.

Where Are The Most Expensive College Football Tickets At Most Venues?

If you are looking for more expensive College Football tickets, lower-level seats are the best place to look. Field level seats on the sidelines will usually cost more than other ones in the stadium. Tickets right at the 50 yard line are often amongst the most expensive sections for college football venues. Additionally, club suites are considered some of the premier locations at most college football stadiums. Resale sites like TicketIQ and Stubhub often don't list suite options, which means you'll need to visit the team site directly to purchase those.
