Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl sold out

The Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl announced a sellout of this year’s game Thursday – even before the matchup has been set.

The Peach Bowl teams will be announced on Sunday. The game will be played on Dc. 29 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

This will be the 20th sellout in the past 22 years for the bowl game, dating to 1997. It’s the fastest sellout for the game in a non-national semifinal year since joining the College Football Playoff and fourth-fastest sellout in the bowl’s history.

“With the potential for a top-10 matchup in this year’s game, we are really seeing a high demand for tickets and we’re doing everything we can to try and meet that demand,” Gary Stokan, Peach Bowl CEO and president, said in a statement.

A limited number of additional seats have been added to Mercedes-Benz Stadium and tickets are available for $75.
