The University of Utah is headed to the Rose Bowl — and the Utes expect to bring a crowd with them.
Utah fans turned out en masse to the Pac-12 championship game in Las Vegas last week. The Utah ticket office sold 8,100 tickets — exhausting nearly three full allotments — and saw about 30,000 Ute fans in total in attendance.
As the school prepares for its first trip to the Rose Bowl on New Year’s day, officials expect to sell out of their initial ticket allotment once again.
“The community is ecstatic and I think we’ll have a very good turnout at the Rose Bowl as far as Utah fans traveling to that game,” head coach Kyle Whittingham said.
Here’s what we know about ticket prices and on-sale dates right now.
These are the prices, before handling fees, according to Rose Bowl officials:
End zones (bench seating) — $165
Seatbacks between the goal line and the 40-yard line — $250
Chairs with seatbacks between the 40-yard lines — $280
Crimson Club members
On Monday, the university began selling the first of its ticket allotment to its biggest donors: Crimson Club members who donate at least $25,000 annually.
The Utah ticket office will then work its way through all 11 Crimson Club levels through Dec. 15, before making any remaining tickets available to the general public on Friday Dec. 17 at 10 a.m.
Ohio State tickets
Ticketmaster was listing verified resale tickets on its website Monday morning. But buying on the secondary market will cost you. Ticketmaster’s re-sale tickets ranged from $509 for bench seats in the south end zone to $3,000 premium seats.
The Rose Bowl is adhering to Los Angeles and Pasadena health department orders. As of now, face coverings will be required for anyone older than 2 regardless of vaccination status. Fans attending the game will also be required to either show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of the game.
