The least expensive premium tickets for the 2015 college football championship game are going for nearly $2,000 as prices were posted Monday.

PrimeSport and Colonade Group, two of the vendors chosen by organizers of the first College Football Playoff, listed identical prices on their websites.

The cheapest premium seat available was $1,899. The game will be played Jan. 12 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The seats' location is in the corners of the top level of the stadium with a three-hour pregame hospitality event throw in, which includes a full premium menu to the top shelf bar and a $50 merchandise voucher.

The most expensive ticket is $3,899 in a suite between the 20-yard lines, which includes hospitality, food, bar, gift bag and postgame field access.

Options that include three-nights in a premium Dallas-area hotel increase the cost to more than $5,000.

PrimeSport also has available suites that range from 15 to 59 seats for prices starting at $4,000 per ticket.

Playoff organizers announced last week that 1,000 tickets to the game will be available by a random drawing to those who submit their names between Jan. 13 and May 1. Five hundred winners will be notified they can buy two tickets at face value, which has not been announced.

Ticket prices for the two national semifinals have not been announced. Those games, the Rose Bowl and Sugar Bowl, will be played Jan. 1, 2015. Tickets for the semifinals are controlled by the organizers of those venues.

Face-value tickets for this year's Rose Bowl ranged from $150 to $185 and Sugar Bowl tickets ranged from $175 to $240. The final BCS national championship included face values that ranged from $325 to $385.
