AUGUSTA, GA. – When it comes to getting a ticket to an LSU baseball game compared to a Masters badge, there’s no comparison.
Tickets online for Saturday’s LSU-Auburn game could be had for $10-12 from LSU. For a Masters ticket you had to go online and pay around $750 for Saturday only. The only way for non tournament badge holders to get their hands on face value tickets is to win the rights to buy one of the few single-day tickets in the annual pre-Masters lottery.
Concession prices are a different story. Put it simply, Augusta National doesn’t gouge, especially compared to a lot of other sports venues. A sandwich, bag of chips and a soda at Amen Corner will set you back $5.50 at most, less than you’d pay for a hamburger Saturday at Alex Box Stadium.
It’s not exactly and apples to apples comparison since the two venues offer few of the same items, but here’s a look at prices at the Masters and at LSU:
LSU (Auburn baseball game) $10, 12
Masters $325, 750 (4-day tournament badge, one-day ticket on the secondary market)
