The University of Colorado is reaping the benefits of hiring Deion Sanders as the head coach of its football program, having already sold out an earlier spring game.
The Buffaloes are under heavy scrutiny nowadays and are heading into the next NCAA season with just about every football fan paying attention. Colorado finished 1-11 last season and will hope to become a powerhouse college team again after appointing Coach Prime, having last won a national championship way back in 1990.
Where publicity is concerned, they’re already there. The program has seen an influx of financial rewards since the move to bring in Deion, selling over 30,000 spring game tickets after having to beg folks to take 2,000 of them for free last year. The Buffaloes ticket reserve had already gotten cleaned out by mid-April.
Tickets To Colorado’s Season Opener Are Ridiculously Expensive
While ESPN predicts they’ll be the worst team in the country as the Sanders effect isn’t expected to work immediately, folks are still throwing money at Colorado. The university is taking full advantage, as evidenced by the prices for their season-opener at home against the Nebraska Cornhuskers on September 9.
The cheapest seats in the house will set you back at least $315 while premium seating goes as high as $924.
Fans aren’t at all phased, though. Most of the seats at Folsom Field were taken at the time of writing.
