Tide Total Points NC Game

  • Anyone know many point it is going to take to get tickets?

  • I think you had to have 400 or 405 to order SEC Championship tickets so I would think you'd need atleast that many to guarantee them.

  • 2011 Bowl Game Information
    Your credit card will not be charged until it has been officially announced which bowl game the University of Alabama will participate in. You will only be charged and receive tickets for that that game. These requests are final and no additions can or will be made after the priority deadline of Friday, November 11. Your seat location will be determined by your season ticket priority. See below for more details.

    The number of tickets the University of Alabama receives to each bowl game varies widely and greatly impacts how far into the customer base these tickets can be distributed. The ticket prices and allotments for each bowl game are as follows:

    Bowl Game Allotment Price(s)
    Chick-fil-A Bowl (December 31) 16,000 $80
    Outback Bowl (January 2) 12,000 $75, $160
    Capital One Bowl (January 2) 12,500 $87, $92
    Gator Bowl (January 2) 15,000 $65, $125
    Rose Bowl (January 2) 20,100 $150, $175
    Fiesta Bowl (January 2) 17,500 $155, $190, $235, $255
    Sugar Bowl (January 3) 17,500 $120, $140, $150, $170, $180
    Orange Bowl (January 4) 17,500 $75, $99, $120, $155, $165, $225
    Cotton Bowl (January 6) 12,500 $125, $200
    BCS National Championship (January 9) 17,000 $300, $350

    For all post-season games, tickets will be offered to Tide Pride, UA Faculty/Staff who purchased and received 2011 season tickets, Lettermen who purchased and received 2011 season tickets and current UA students. Quantities and percentages offered to each group are as follows:

    Ticket Limits for all post-season games
    Faculty/Staff - 5% Limit of 2
    Lettermen - 10% Limit of 2
    Students - 12% Limit of 1
    Tide Pride Limits are determined by Tide Totals Priority Points below

    Point Range SEC Ticket Limit Bowl Ticket Limit
    3500 & up 8 8
    900 - 3499 4 4
    405 - 899 2 2
    404 & below 0 2 (if available)

    Nothing official but looks like if you have more than 405 points you will get 2

  • If you would qualify for SEC Champ tickets, then you would most certainly get BCS tickets. That is about the only given out there.

    You can't compare this BCS game to the one 2 years ago. Many Bama fans turned down the tickets that year due to it being in Cali and the cost of traveling. Thus, a good number of people under the 400 point mark (including myself) got tickets to that game. This year will be much different. With the proximity of the game and low cost of travel, look for most people to take the tickets. Also, if I'm not mistaken, the Superdome seats fewer people than the Rose Bowl. That means fewer tickets allotted to Bama.

    Unfortunately i think you are correct on your assessment. The only glimmer of hope that i hold onto is that the bowl ticket form deadline came the week after the LSU game and maybe some depressed fans assumed we were out of it and didn't elect those tickets.
    Im really not looking forward to dropping $2-3grand on tix
