Bowl adds additional seating to meet demand for tickets.
ATLANTA (Nov. 29, 2018) – The Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl has sold out its initial ticket inventory more than three days before its teams will even be announced. This marks the 20th time the Bowl has sold out in its last 22 games, dating back to 1997.
To meet the high ticket demand for this year’s game, a limited number of additional seats have been added to Mercedes-Benz Stadium. These new tickets are available to the public for only $75.
This year’s sellout is the fastest the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl has sold out in a non-Semifinal year since joining the College Football Playoff (CFP), and represents the fourth-fastest sellout in the Bowl’s history.
“With the potential for a top-10 matchup in this year’s game, we are really seeing a high demand for tickets and we’re doing everything we can to try and meet that demand,” said Gary Stokan, Peach Bowl, Inc. CEO and president.
The Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl is set for Dec. 29 at noon ET in Mercedes-Benz Stadium and will feature top-ranked teams as assigned by the CFP selection committee on Sunday.
“We’re expecting an incredible matchup to be announced on selection Sunday and are urging fans to purchase these additional seats now to make sure they don’t miss out on what will be an unbelievable atmosphere at Mercedes-Benz Stadium,” said Bob Somers, Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl chairman.
Since its inaugural game in 1968, the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl has attracted more than 2.95 million fans to Atlanta, with an average of 71,321 fans attending the game since 2000.
