For those who were inside Raymond James Stadium

Does seeing us win it live make you any less likely to shell out the cash to see it again if we make it there in the next few years? Would you pay 2017 ticket prices?

I would probably go to Atlanta or New Orleans (drivable distances), but would likely be content to tailgate and retreat to a nearby bar or hotel room to watch the game...close enough to get back for the victory celebration.

Or I will learn my lesson and order tickets through IPTAY.

Order the tickets. Priceless having been there.***

but I can't envision a scenario where I don't see the clock strike 0 with the Tigers in the National Championship

no, but I like the model that everyone got atleast 2

tickets. I hate the model where you have to have a certain number of points to even get a ticket and then you look and the top donor levels are getting like 14 tickets each while others get none. That is total BS. They should start like they did for Tampa everyone gets a minimum of 2 and then it is tiered from there. It still was kinda out of sync with the uppers getting 12 & 14 tickets but I thought a start in the right direction.

Here was the breakdown from Tampa for IPTAY

1,000+ priority points – no more than 14 tickets
500-999 priority points – no more than 12 tickets
250-499 priority points – no more than 10 tickets
100-249 priority points – no more than 8 tickets
40-99 priority points – no more than 4 tickets
1-39 priority points – no more than 2 tickets


after everyone hearing that "everyone in IPTAY got tickets"

I expect the number of 1-39 point donors to skyrocket making this harder to manage going forward

2020 orange level member

it may, but every donor should qualify for 2 tickets minimum


Posted: Feb 27, 2017 11:12 AM
 

for any game, even if that means the big donors only get 6-8 tickets


Re: no, but I like the model that everyone got atleast 2

Granted everyone was able to get tickets this time, I don't see it happening in the future. It was impossible to get Auburn tickets, ACCCG tickets in 2015, etc as a lower point donor last year. The Natty was an anomaly in part to people assuming a price drop like last year and lower donors skipping on IPTAY tickets because of prior issues.

I was at both and absolutely worth it. Even the loss in Phoenix was worth it. Saw people I haven't seen since Clemson days and lived every minute of it

I would do it again. This time buying early. I hesitated at a cost of $1000.

A better question would be, was it worth going in both 2016 and 2017?

The answer is YES!

Until I got there, I was kicking myself for making such an ridiculous financial decision. 1 ticket costing more than a season ticket....economically stupid.

I took my oldest son, and made it a reward for doing so well in school.
The minute we left, it became a guys trip and not just a football game
The minute we got to Tampa it became an experience
The minute we won it became an awesome memory. I've got a framed picture of he and I grinning ear to ear and the video board is re-showing the celebration of Renfrow's catch. Wouldn't have that if I was sitting on the couch.
Knowing what I know now, I would be a bargain at twice the price.



I don't know if I could justify ticket prices PLUS a last minute flight, but since I promised my youngest son that if we went back and he was old enough I would take him, I guess I would have to eat the cost.


Same hete

Probably was not clear in my original post. I was there … But I at a significant, Albeit much worthwhile, cost

I think it would be wise to start a special account just for such a trip. Believe me it is worth it. Another appearance in this game is very likely within the next few years. It is obvious to most that the Tigers are no "flash in the pan" and we be a contender again..... soon. Save up and
JOIN IPTAY

You, sir, are a true Clemson fan. Well done.

will go to every playoff game that we are in

as long as I have the money and a wing man/lady

Being in the stadium was worth every penny because winning it again is not definite

Cat on a tin roof, dogs in a pile,
Nothin' left to do but smile, smile, smile!!!!


Yes, I'd shell out the cash to see it again.

Tampa was awesome & a experience I'll never forget.

Only if it was in a really cool location I haven't been too.


Re: For those who were inside Raymond James Stadium

We kicked ourselves for not going to Phoenix. Made the trip to Tampa and wouldn't trade it for the world. We joined iptay for this upcoming season for the first time. I would drive to Alaska to watch us play for the natty. What an awesome experience!


I've said this on here before.....

that 30-45 minutes after the game was over, when the stadium was 100% Clemson fans - whooping, hugging, crying, and high-fiving while our players were on the field accepting the trophy - was maybe the most blissful moment I have ever had as a sports fan.

I've watched 100 different games in many different sports over the years on TV, with players and fans reveling like kids in snow from the confetti falling from the sky. Great moments all.

But at 1AM in the morning on a chilly Monday night in Tampa Fla, I had a moment of realization that all that confetti, for the first time in my life, was FOR ME. MY team.

And that was worth WAY more money than I had spent on that ticket and trip. I'd do it again for twice the price.

would def go if it's ATL but I'm so

Broke from paying for that that I'll have to pay off some bills if it's somewhere out west.

Yes I would go to the next one paying the same amount.


Spent $4000 for 2 excellent tickets. Consider it a bargain_

for a memory of a lifetime.

Yes - would do again.

Be there. Aloha.


I'd purchase again at the same price.


Posted: Feb 27, 2017 12:06 PM
 

At least one more time. ??

2020 white level memberbadge-donor-05yr.jpg

Noooooo!!!!


Posted: Feb 27, 2017 12:17 PM
 

It is an indescribably amazing experience. I wish I could go back and replay the whole trip over and over! I could never miss one now that Ive been.


Re: For those who were inside Raymond James Stadium


Posted: Feb 27, 2017 12:18 PM
 

I was there I only spent $450 on my ticket so it was well worth what I spent! Definitely something I will never forget in my life! Besides the birth of my kids that probably will be one of my greatest memories!


Re: For those who were inside Raymond James Stadium

We went last year and year also. We've spent a ton of money and it was totally worth it, but we can't afford to go again. In my lifetime, the will not be a greater game.

to win the CFB Playoff in person, with all of my kids present - PRICELESS! The chance to do it again? Absolutely!

2020 white level member

Definitely, YES

I had not planned on going to Arizona last year because of cost and if I'm honest, fear of losing. My daughter won a student ticket so we made the trip last minute. Despite the loss, it was a fantastic experience that I almost missed. This year my son came along as well and it was one of the best experiences of my life.

Experiences like these are truly priceless! When we make it back again, I'll do everything in my power to be there.

I put the experience up there with the most monumental moments of my life such as marriage and childbirth. If you look at it like that, it's a lot cheaper than both of those. I would definitely do it again every year if the team makes it.
