Masters Tickets Are Most Expensive in All of Sports

Jack Gruber-USA TODAY Sports

So you’re thinking of trying to get tickets to The Masters?  If so, you better be ready to drop a huge chunk of change if you’re able to figure out a way to get your hands on any. Tickets to The Masters have become the most expensive ticket in all of sports, outpacing The Super Bowl, BCS National Championship Game and World Series.

A four day pass for the event will run no less than $4,486 while tickets for individual days of the event will cost at least $1,215 for the cheapest day, which just so happens to be Friday. Comparatively, single day tickets for this year’s U.S. Open at Merion Golf Club run anywhere from $180 to $300, and Merion is an incredibly small venue.

Anybody considering tickets to one of the most well known events in all of sports, let alone golf, knows that they are going to have to pay a pretty venue for the pleasure of walking the hallowed grounds of Augusta National. I, for one, think it would be worth absolutely every penny – and then some.

For most people, attending The Masters is a once in a lifetime event that they will never forget. It’s a bucket list activity – something that you look forward to for years, maybe even decades – and jump at the opportunity once it presents itself because you know it might not happen again. The history must just emanate from every inch of the grounds. I’m sure it is truly something to behold, and worth whatever the cost.
