It’s game day in Athens. Who would have thought that at the beginning of the season we would witness a Top 5 showdown for the Georgia-Tennessee game?

Tickets for the game and parking passes are out there, but will cost you. Here are some average prices if you hope to be at the game.

Cheapest single ticket: $546
Most expensive single ticket: $10,441
Cheapest pair of tickets: $546
Most expensive pair of tickets: $11,500

The secondary ticket market is hotter now than ever before, especially for what is likely to be the most watched college football game of the season so far. Georgia-Tennessee football tickets prices are about 271% higher than 2021, according to Ticket IQ.

Don’t forget parking and hotels.

Parking resell prices are anywhere from $500 to $700.

Hotels in Athens are sold out from every search I tried. The nearest rooms were in Commerce and Gainesville. Prices range from $217 to $441 per night.

Earlier this week, The College Football Playoff Rankings were announced which set up the what will likely be the most watched game of the season so far. In addition to the game, there are several things happening today which sets this game day apart from any other in Athens or anywhere else.
