Boise State has sold its allotment of 7,500 tickets for the Sept. 3 Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game against Georgia, making the season-opening football game a sellout.
Boise State received 7,500 tickets for the game and made them available to season-ticket holders first. About 500 tickets went on sale to the general public last week and were gone in 14 minutes, ticket manager Anita Guerricabeitia said.
Georgia previously sold its 53,000 tickets.
The rest of the tickets in the 71,959 -seat Georgia Dome went to game organizers. Those tickets won’t be sold publicly.
Stubhub.com lists fewer than 700 tickets to the game for sale, with a starting price of $260.
Boise State sold its tickets for $74 and $88.
I’ll have more on football tickets in Friday’s paper. Tickets for road games are on sale through the Boise State ticket office. Individual-game tickets for home games don’t go on sale until Sept. 14.
