Tickets to see Georgia tee it up between the hedges won’t be cheap for fans in the 2017 season.
Georgia’s allotment of 58,000 general admission seats have sold out for Kirby Smart’s inaugural season, but UGA's Athletic Association board of directors granted athletic director Greg McGarity's request to raise the minimum donation amount for general admission seats.
Club seats and general seating rose by 20 percent, and seats in sections 101-314 -- seats behind the visiting team bench in Sanford Stadium -- rose by 10 percent.
Student and staff tickets won’t see an increase.
This is the first ticket price increase since 2005 and will raise an additional $2.5 million in ticket sales, McGarity revealed to reporters, and those funds will go towards the development of future athletic facilities on campus.
The board also approved an increased athletic budget of $123.1 million due to increased spending by the football program.
