When it comes to rivalries in college basketball, the Duke Blue Devils vs. North Carolina Tar Heels matchup stands tall above them all.
That’s even more true this season, but if fans want a shot to be able to see this storied rivalry, they’ll be dishing out some serious dough just to get inside Cameron Indoor Stadium for Wednesday’s matchup.
Ticket prices are now going for at least $2,500, according to ESPN’s Myron Medcalf.
That’s just shy of the $2,674 you would have paid on Jan. 27 for the cheapest available ticket to the Feb. 3 Super Bowl, per Kyle Zorn, a marketing strategist for secondary ticket seller TickPick.
One ticket to this week’s UNC-Duke game sold for $10,652, per Vivid Seats.
“Between Zion Williamson, a No. 1 ranking, and this being one of the biggest rivalries in sports, there’s intense demand,” Zorn said. “There’s also a limited supply of inventory, which is having a major effect on price. Cameron Indoor Stadium has 13 percent the seating capacity of Mercedes-Benz Stadium. When you factor in that the floor seating is reserved for students, you’re left with a short supply – and massive demand.”
For last season’s National Title game that featured Villanova and Michigan — prices were as low as $67. Per Vivid Seats, the average price to attend a North Carolina home game is $70 this season, but the average price for the March 9 rematch against Duke is already at $991.
Duke heads into the matchup as the #1 team in the country, while the Tar Heels sit eighth in the country with a record of 20-5.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
