    Ticket Price Mystery

    I had a family member who was looking at different ticketing sites for an event and decided to look up Tech football for giggles. He asked me why tickets in section R were going for around $50 dollars when everywhere else in the stadium you could pick up tickets at $15-20? I had no clue R, is basically student side endzone. So I looked up a few sites and sure enough, Seat Geek, Vivid Seats, and Stub Hub all at least $50.

    Anyone know the reason, people would be trying to sell tickets there for that much?

    Those tickets are probably offered by bots rather than actual people with tickets. If someone is crazy enough to order a $50 ticket from that site, the bot buys it from Tech for half that and flips it to them. Just my guess.

    I got tickets yesterday with the alumni code for $12.50 each. That ended last night.

    Maybe another discount will roll out today.

    We have reserved seats in OO - had them for years (these are the seats with the cushions). Seat Nazis will get you if you try to sit there
