National championship ticket prices are dropping dramatically

Tickets to Monday's matchup between Georgia and Alabama aren't exactly a steal yet but the prices posted on ticket broker sites have dropped quite a bit from their stratospheric starting point.

You can grab slots from Vivid Seats starting at $1,216 . Earlier this week the cheapest seat was going for more than $1,900.

They're listed starting at $1,220 each on Stubhub  where the priciest offering is a 30-person suite is up for grabs at $111,705, or about $3,723 per seat. Earlier this week someone listed a 22-person suite for $94,000  or about $4,272 each.

Still, supply is limited and the event will surely sell out.

“Mercedes-Benz Stadium is the newest NFL stadium, which makes it the gem of the live-event experience,” said Anne Murlowski, director of marketing for SuiteHop, an online broker of swank game-day real estate. “High-tech interiors and luxury amenities like plush leather seating ensure that suite guests can enjoy the game out of the busy crowd below.”

She got in touch the other day regarding her firm's inventory, ranging from a private, 30-person suite on the 40-yard line for $196,473 to single tickets in a shared suite for $3,750. But as of this morning, the site isn't showing any availability.
