The first ever College Football Playoff will come to an end at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, next January, and you can be there in person to see history made for the small price of...oh, okay, never mind.

According to ESPN.com, which, on Tuesday, released a promotional packet from the CFP that includes various ticket packages for the national title game, it will cost a pretty penny to sit in Jerry's World for the crowning of a new national champion.

Here is a breakdown of the prices by package:

Seating Packages for 2015 National Title Game

Gold Level [A]$5,999$5,249$4,499
Gold Level [B]$5,399$4,649$3,899
Black Level [C]$4,699$4,049$3,399
Black Level [D]$4,399$3,749$3,099

The Gold Level tickets get you somewhere between the 20-yard line and midfield. In the A package, you're sitting at either the 100 level (closest to the field) or 200 level; in the B package, you're sitting in the 300s (and still paying almost $5,400 for single occupancy).

The Black Level tickets get you somewhere between the 20-yard line and the goal line. As with the Gold tickets, the C package has you in the 100 or 200 level, while the D package has you up in the 300s. 

The White Level tickets are a little more varied.

The E package has you in the 100 or 200 levels but on the corner of an end zone; the F package has you in the 100 or 200 levels but directly behind an end zone; the G package is the same as the E but in the 300 level; and the H package puts you in the scant-used 400 level, albeit between the 20-yard line and midfield.

Of course, these packages also come with hotel accommodations, which makes the prices slightly less jarring. Still, Jerry Jones plans on raking in a whole lot of attendance money on January 12, 2015.
