UGA/Auburn Game Brought in More Money Lodging Wise than the Iron Bowl
There’s a lot of money to be made on our football frenzy.
The totals are in for two big games in Auburn.
Surprise, the Auburn/Georgia game brought in more money than the Iron Bowl, about$100,000 more.
The Auburn/Opelika Tourism Bureau said some hotels increased rates after UGA came to town, which might have prompted Iron Bowl visitors to overnight elsewhere.
Iron Bowl weekend hotel occupancy almost 85% in 2017, 80.6% for the Iron bowl weekend in 2015. Back in 2013 they ran a 92%.
The average rate just over $275 this Iron Bowl Weekend.
