National Championship Game tickets hit six-year low
Any Alabama fans planning a last-minute trip to the National Championship Game picked the right year to do it.
Tickets to the National Championship Game are at a six-year low and down 35 percent from before the College Football Playoff Semifinal matches, according to secondary ticket market TiqIQ:
Average price for CFP national championship is currently $906.52, down 35.72% since before semis and lowest in 6 yrs per @tiqiq.

That is somewhat surprising.
Clemson is going for its first national championship in 1981 and Alabama is back to continue its dominance.
Of course both schools located in the Southeast are traveling cross country to Glendale, Ariz., and University of Phoenix Stadium all about a week and a half after both fan bases traveled for bowl games. This was the big concern of having a playoff or plus-one bowl game.
Of course, ticket prices does not necessarily reflect attendance. The game should still be a sellout and maybe fans are less reluctant to give up their tickets and post them on secondary markets. A lower price might also suggest there is too much supply and not enough demand.
What the atmosphere will be like for the national championship game is still yet to be seen.
If you want tickets, they are relatively cheap.
