There have been some pretty terrific non-conference games so far this year, but few in recent memory are more highly anticipated than Georgia vs. Notre Dame. The game is widely expected to have the largest crowd in the history of Georgia’s Sanford Stadium.
We already knew that the game was among the most must-see in college football. Ticket prices were the most expensive in the country going into the season.
In fact, demand for tickets to the game has gotten so high that the Bulldogs have made a big change.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Georgia is planning to add extra seats to the stadium. Per the report, Georgia will be adding temporary seating to make room for several hundred extra fans.
“…temporary aluminum bleachers will be installed on the West End plaza, underneath the Sanford Stadium scoreboard and at the back of Sections 143 and 139.”
Sanford Stadium’s maximum capacity is usually 92,746. With the addition of the extra seats, it will rise by 500 to 93,246.
The game is the second part of a home-and-home series between the Bulldogs and the Fighting Irish. Georgia won at Notre Dame in 2017 en route to an SEC title and College Football Playoff berth. Notre Dame will certainly be looking to return the favor in 2019.
The game is scheduled for September 21 at 8:00 p.m. EST and will air on CBS.
