Named “2015 Sports Event of the Year" by SportsBusiness Journal, College Football Playoff is setting the standard pretty high.

In 2015, over 80,000 fans gathered to watch the Ohio State Buckeyes clinch the first
College Football Playoff National Championship. Plus, with over 33 million views tuning in to ESPN, it became the new most-watched program in cable television history.

Are you surprised? Of course not! The
College Football Playoff National Championship brings one of the most exciting experiences you will ever have regardless of whether or not your favorite team is playing.

So how can you attend? And more importantly, how can you attend on a budget? Believe it or not, it can be done. You don’t have to break the bank. You just need a little guidance!

With that being said, here are four ways to attend the College Football Playoff National Championship on budget.

Bundle Your Tickets and Amenities

You don’t realize how much you are going to buy until you actually start buying it, and then you realize that the dollar signs are really starting to add up. You want tickets; that’s obvious. But you are also going to need meals, drinks, transportation, parking, a hotel, souvenirs and more.

Buying everything individually could end up costing you way more than it actually needs to.  Instead of purchasing what you need a la carte, you should instead bundle your tickets and amenities with a package.

Packages can include tickets, food, drinks, souvenirs, exclusive access, hotel accommodations, transportation and other exciting opportunities!

There are plenty of packages to choose from that will fit your own wants and needs. It’s a great money-conscious and budget-friendly way to get everything for all one price.

Act Early

There are several reasons that acting early can work on your behalf, with the biggest being that you can plan your finances and save money.

Through QuintEvents, you can opt for payment terms, which basically means you pay a little now and a little later. One-third of the cost of your package is due at signing. One-third is due September 1, 2015. One-third is due December 1, 2015. This provides a more convenient and affordable way to attend the
National Championship and one that will go right along with your budget!

By acting early, you also get the best selection of seats at the best price. You can easily find something that will fit into your budget. But if you wait too late, you might end up missing out.

You can also save money by booking your flights directly after you purchase tickets. The closer you get to your event, the more likely you will see the cost of flights increase. If you book sooner rather than later, you can end up saving a bundle. Also keep in mind that the cost of flights is typically lower on Tuesdays at 3 pm. It’s also less expensive to book your flight for a Tuesday, Wednesday or Saturday.

Travel with Others

Traveling with friends, family or colleagues is not only fun, but also another way to stay within your budget. Think about it. Isn’t it less expensive to split the cost of a hotel room than get just one for yourself? The answer is yes.

If you’re driving to Glendale, Arizona, you can also save money by riding together. Plus, road trips with friends are always a grand time!

Choose the Right Budget-Friendly Package

The biggest difference between ticket packages is typically your seating location. Do you want to sit in the endzones? 50-yard line? Corners? Upper or lower? With so many different options, you are sure to find the perfect seat for your budget.

Even with the most budget-friendly packages, you will still get incredible hospitality and other great amenities. Enjoy pregame hospitality at a premium venue, which includes gourmet food and a top-shelf open bar. You’ll also be given a merchandise coupon and other
College Football Playoff Souvenirs.

Attending the College Football Playoff National Championship on a budget is possible as long as you plan ahead! Going with an Official Ticket Package is your best cost-efficient option and will end up saving you in the long run. Go ahead and start planning your trip now so you can enjoy your time at the College Football National Championship and keep your wallet happy!
