TUSCALOOSA, AL -

There are four days until kick-off of the 78th Iron Bowl, and tickets to this year’s game are in higher demand than ever before according to one ticket company.

Seatgeek.com is an online ticket search engine. There company is based out of New York.

A ticket inside Jordan-Hare stadium will cost you about $350 this year.

But a representative for online search engine SeatGeek, said that isn't the most expensive ticket price listed.

SeatGeek Communications Analyst Connor Gregoire said, “One of the highest asking prices, there are people who are listing their tickets you know in the lower section of the stadium for $33,000 per ticket.”

Gregoire said the most one ticket has sold for is more than $2,200.

After the Auburn/Georgia game the ticket search engine saw a 50 percent jump in Iron Bowl ticket prices.

According to statistics from SeatGeek the Iron Bowl is the most in-demand game of rivalry weekend, with an average resale price 75 percent higher than Ohio State-Michigan.

“We're seeing higher demand for this game between Auburn and Alabama than even for the SEC championship game,” Gregoire added.

Tuscaloosa ticket broker, Candice Carden, said availability has increased in the past few days. She added, “It's still kind of tight on the buyers side to try to find some, but they are popping up a little more here at the end.”

But Carden said last minute shoppers, may be in luck and she could have tickets up until Friday based off of the demand in the next couple of days.
