Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Officially Sells Out
The Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl game is officially sold out, the bowl announced Thursday.
The Nittany Lions, who are used to playing in sold-out stadiums, will take on Ole Miss in this year’s edition of the game.
According to The Stadium Guide, Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, the home of the Peach Bowl, has a capacity of 71,000 people. This makes it the fourth-largest covered stadium in the nation and the seventh-largest in the world.
“Fans are excited to see the Rebels and Nittany Lions face off for the first time in what is shaping up to be one of the best matchups this Bowl Season between a top-20 offense at Ole Miss vs. the nation’s top defense with Penn State,” Peach Bowl CEO and President Gary Stokan said. “We’re looking forward to once again having a full house and an electric atmosphere on Dec. 30 here in the Capital of College Football.”
Despite the 71,000-person capacity, Mercedes-Benz Stadium can certainly hold more people. Last year, 79,330 people attended the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl matchup between Georgia and Ohio State. This was the largest crowd ever at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, even higher than Super Bowl LIII.
Since 2000, the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl has averaged about 68,348 fans per game, selling out 24 of the last 27 editions of the game. While the game is officially sold out, tickets are still available through secondary markets.
The Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl featuring Penn State and Ole Miss will take place at noon on Saturday, December 30, in Atlanta, Georgia.
