August 3, 2012Coach James Franklin continues to turn Vanderbilt's football program in many ways. There's been a bowl game in his first season, a banner recruiting class this winter (and a Top 20 class to this point for 2013), but there's also been a marked increase in fan excitement as well.
Fans are starting to see that excitement reflected in the prices they pay for their seats on the secondary ticket market. Thanks to research done by the data analysts at SeatGeek.com we can get an idea of the economic value of that difference. Consider this:
While the Commodores still have the lowest average ticket prices in the SEC, they have made up considerable ground since Franklin's arrival. Prices have increased across every major category since 2010. As Franklin continues to grow the program, it'll be interesting to see how much prices for tickets continue to increase as well.
Special thanks to the folks at Seat Geek for supplying all the data and storylines for this article.
