I enjoy tracking ticket prices like most folks watch stocks. The Battle At Bristol is an interesting case study that has completely piqued my interest. The geographical draw will be huge. The Hokies and Volunteers both have passionate fan bases, and will fill the Bristol Motor Speedway. The curiosity factor is huge. How will the staff at B.M.S. transition the facility from racetrack to football stadium. The listed capacity of B.M.S. is 160,000. The game will certainly beat the attendance record set in Michigan's "Big House" at 115,109. I'm not sure with the setup that the track could hold the maximum of 160k. This means there should be plenty of seating options at all price points. We are still a few months away from kickoff, and here are what tickets are going for at stubhub.com:
On the low end, you can secure a single game ticket for $153.45. That's for a single ticket. If you are bringing a friend, the lowest ticket is priced at $170.00 apiece. Those seats are located in the lower end zone.
If you are a high roller, you can get premium midfield seating for the low price of $581.01 per ticket. For a little over a grand, you and your date can have one of the best seats in the house. The supply is seriously under the demand at these prices. That is hard for me to fathom that such a large venue is driving this type of pricing. Bristol has a great track record of being a great host for the masses that will descend on the sleepy little town. It's going to be amazing to see State Street swarming with Hokies and Vols. I can't wait to get there, and hope to see you soon!
