ANN ARBOR, MI – If you’re still looking to snag some tickets to Michigan’s home opener this weekend against Cincinnati, you’re in luck, but you better not wait too long.
There are still single tickets left in a few sections throughout Michigan Stadium for the Saturday, Sept. 9 opener, which kicks off at noon. Tickets start at $75 through the athletic department’s website, with a $4 fee, while $85 and $100 tickets also are available around the 20-to 30-yard line, with a $6 fee.
Despite the potential for a blowout with UM opening as a 33-point favorite, tickets are still fetching at least $60 each on the secondary market, with the majority of those seats located in the corners and end zones. With a service fee, those tickets are closer to $72 each.
On Vivid Seats, individual tickets start at $54 each, with a service fee of $13.50.
Michigan is coming off a big 33-17 win to open the season against Florida, a game played in Arlington, Texas.
In May, Michigan announced it was expecting around 93,000 season tickets sold for the 2017 football season.
That number, per the athletic department, is the highest it’s been since 2007 — Lloyd Carr’s final year as the program’s head coach.
Additionally, included in that 93,000 figure is 21,000 student season tickets – also the highest it’s been since 2007.
