Nearly 1,000 tickets still available for Bulldogs’ opener

Georgia has sold out its opening home football game the last 13 years, but may not have a full house in Sanford Stadium for the Buffalo game Saturday.

There were still about a 1,000 tickets remaining as of Friday, according to ticket manager Tim Cearley.

That means the Bulldogs could be in danger of not selling out a home season opener for the first time since 1998.

That game with Kent State drew 86,003 to what was then a capacity of 86,177. Sanford Stadium now seats 92,746.

Georgia has sold “a few hundred” Buffalo tickets per week and expects to make a dent before game day, according to Cearley. Tickets will still be sold on Saturday at the East end ticket office. They are $45 each.

There are also about 1,000 tickets left for the Sept. 15 game against Florida Atlantic, but based on current sales that game is expected to sell out.
