Want to Go To The Final Four in Atlanta? Be Prepared to Pay Up!
If you are looking to go to the Final Four this weekend in Atlanta be prepared to spend some serious money. The prices range for ticket sellers started at $2,500 dollars and ranged up to $12,000 for courtside seats.
A little rich for my blood but if you want to head over to the Masters in Augusta, Georgia the cost of a badge, that is the Masters ticket, is in the $5,000 territory for all days at the most famous golf tournament.
At Stubhub, a leading online ticket reseller, a pair of floor seats for the Final Four behind one of the baskets was offered for $12,000 — apiece. At least four dozen other seats, all situated in the lower levels of the Georgia Dome, were priced no lower than $2,500 a ticket. The only silver lining: those seats would have cost more than $5,000 apiece if they had been purchased before the Sweet Sixteen was over.
A look at four of the top sports events in the United States — the NCAA Final Four, the Masters, the Kentucky Derby and the Super Bowl — reveals that the prices for the best tickets to the biggest contests are heading through the roof, sometimes reaching five figures for a few hours of entertainment. The concept of face value is almost a joke, as top-notch seats command prices easily twentyfold above the printed charge. (Premium seats at the Georgia Dome this weekend are $204.) via MSNBC.com.

Speaking only for myself, I can’t imagine what the thrill is in watching someone hit a golf ball.
But each to his own.
I’ll stick with chess … now there’s excitement!
Gotta have those high ticket prices so the teams can buy women, champagne, crack and lots and lots of gold jewelry – oh, excuse me, I thought this article was about rappers. We know high level tv executives and athletes are as pure as ivory soap.
