THEE Realist
Attendance has always been a big topic of discussion as it relates to the Cricket Wireless Celebration Bowl. That trend will continue with the fifth edition of the game on Saturday as organizers say they have sold out of tickets.

“What a way to kickoff #BowlWeek here in Atlanta, we are officially sold out!” The Celebration Bowl account tweeted on Monday afternoon.

“We are proud to announce that the 2021 Cricket Celebration Bowl in Atlanta has officially sold out,” Celebration Bowl Executive Director John Grant said in a statement on Monday afternoon. “Due to the high demand for tickets, we will release 1,000 standing room only tickets on Wednesday, Dec 15 at Noon, priced at $40. Once those tickets are sold, no other tickets will be available.”

This news comes just over a week after it was announced that the bottom level of the Mercedes-Benz Stadium was sold out.

The game will be played at that venue for the third time in its young history as SWAC champion Jackson State takes on MEAC champion South Carolina State. It has a seating capacity of 74,295 fans. That’s a far cry from the first game in the dome, back in 2018, when attendance was listed at 25,873 as Grambling State took on North Carolina A&T.
