Ticket prices at Alabama, Auburn on rise

By  | 

Alabama football fans will have to pay more to be in Bryant-Denny Stadium during Nick Saban's first year with the Crimson Tide.

Ticket prices for Alabama home games have increased by as much as 37.5 percent based on information sent to Tide Pride season ticket holders this week.

A ticket to any of the four Southeastern Conference home games cost 55 dollars this year, compared to 40 bucks last season.

The 2007 total season ticket price is 345 dollars for seven games, compared to 320 dollars for eight games in 2006. That's an increase of about 9 bucks per ticket, or 22-and-a-half percent.

Auburn, which also has four SEC home games, is charging 60 dollars for the Iron Bowl game and 45 dollars each for games against Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Vanderbilt.

Auburn season tickets are 345 dollars each, an increase of 15 dollars from 2006.
