Revenue generated from Georgia football tickets zoomed up $11.6 million from a year ago. The Athletic Association reported $33.02 million as of April, a jump from $21.4 million a year earlier, according to figures provided to its board of directors during the spring meeting Thursday at The King and Prince & Golf Resort. Georgia attributed that to an increase in ticket prices that went into effect for the 2018 season and an additional home game—seven total–last year. “I think we knew that tickets would sell out,” athletic director Greg McGarity said. Season ticket holders saw a hike of $25 for power five conference opponents to $75 per ticket and $5 more for other games to $55. There was no increase this year, but demand is high. -Marc Weiszer, OnlineAthens. Read More.
