Watching Zion Williamson play North Carolina in Cameron Indoor Stadium sounds extra enjoyable than going to the Tremendous Bowl to me, so I suppose I can’t name this a complete shock.
However the least expensive tickets for Wednesday’s Duke-North Carolina recreation at the moment are promoting for $2,500, simply $174 lower than the least costly ticket to this 12 months’s Tremendous Bowl.
That is insane pricing for even probably the most glamorous faculty basketball recreation.
Some tickets for final season’s nationwide title recreation between Villanova and Michigan had been as little as $67. Per Vivid Seats, the common worth to attend a North Carolina residence recreation is $70 this season, however the common worth for the March 9 rematch in opposition to Duke is already at $991.
And it’s principally due to Zion.
“Between Zion Williamson, a No. 1 rating and this being one of many largest rivalries in sports activities, there’s intense demand,” Zorn stated. “There’s additionally a restricted provide of stock, which is having a serious impact on worth. Cameron Indoor Stadium has 13 % the seating capability of Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Once you think about that the ground seating is reserved for college kids, you’re left with a brief provide — and large demand.”
I’m wondering: Is Zion Williamson price roughly than the price of a scholarship to Duke?
Laborious to say …
