INDIANAPOLIS -- Seats for the 2013 NCAA Division I Football Championship game at FC Dallas Stadium in Frisco, Texas on Jan. 5 are officially sold out. However, a limited number of standing-room only tickets will go on sale Thursday, Dec. 20 at 10 a.m. CT at www.ncaa.com.
Tickets will be $30 and provide entrance to the venue along with access to watch the game from the standing room area of the concourse. This marks the consecutive year that the title game, hosted by the Southland Conference, the city of Frisco and the Hunt Sports Group, has sold out of seats at a capacity of more than 20,500. This year’s championship game, featuring a rematch of last year’s title contest between North Dakota State and Sam Houston State, will also air live on ESPN2 at 12 p.m. CT.
“We expect this to be another outstanding FCS Championship game,” said Damani Leech, NCAA director of championships and alliances and operations manager for the FCS Championship.
“With two great teams playing for the national championship in front of a sellout crowd, the atmosphere will be electric. In addition, many people have put in a lot of time and effort into making sure that the participating teams and their fans have a tremendous experience.”
