The Big Ten Conference today announced their annual B1G Football Championship Game will start selling tickets on August 2nd at 11am Central time.
The Game is scheduled for a kickoff at 7:17 Central on Saturday evening, December 6th. The game will be broadcast on FOX nationally. No word if Gus Johnson will be calling it yet. The game, of course, will be held at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
From the release:
Tickets can be purchased through Ticketmaster at www.ticketmaster.com or by calling (800) 745-3000. Tickets will range from $50 to $90 depending on the seat location and each order will be limited to eight tickets. In addition, every Big Ten Football Championship Game ticket includes complimentary admission to the Big Ten Fan Fest presented by Dr Pepper, to be held at the Indiana Convention Center on Friday and Saturday, December 5-6.
Tickets and VIP premium ticket packages can also be reserved at bigten.teamtix.com, a ticket reservation system launched by the Big Ten in partnership with Forward Market Media (FMM) and BTN. Powered by FMM’s proprietary software platforms, fans can go to bigten.teamtix.com to purchase, for as little as a $10 reservation fee, the right to buy "TeamTix." If the specified team qualifies for the championship game, that fan is guaranteed a ticket to the game priced at face value. If the specified team does not qualify, the "TeamTix" expires and that fan forfeits only the reservation fee. Adding to the excitement, fans can also trade their "TeamTix" in real time in the Big Ten Forward Market, where prices can rise and fall with each team’s on-field performance as the season progresses.
There is no word yet when the call for seat fillers will go out. Keep an eye on Craigslist for that.
