Do a Google search on “Average NFL Ticket Price” and you’ll get thousands of results…
Average NFL Ticket Price
Unfortunately, nearly all of them are merely links to ticket reseller sites where the sky’s the limit as far as prices go. The average fan will almost never pay face value prices for tickets. Instead he’ll likely have to deal with reseller prices, which can be marked up 30%, 50%, or even 200%.
Time to try something a little different…
Most people simply look for tickets on StubHub, eBay, or Craig’s List, expecting to find a bargain just waiting there. Unless you’re incredibly lucky, this is fantasy.
The reality is that you will have to put in some effort to get results. Checking multiple and lesser-known ticket hubs such as Vivid Seats & Ticket Liquidator will increase the chances of finding something that falls through the cracks. Try using a tickets for less search engine or aggregator that will check several sites at once.
Ticket Event Sales
Another thing you can try is visiting the forums on a team’s fan website. Most of these sites don’t permit ticket sales, but the majority of the site members are genuine fans that will offer to sell tickets for games that they can’t attend at face value. In some cases they don’t even want the hassle of selling and will give away the tickets.
Develop a strategy of tracking ticket price trends. The team’s opponent, the weather, the day and time of the game, the time of the year, players changing teams – these are all things that affect prices. Predicting price drops or surges isn’t that far-fetched if you know what to look for. There is even a web site that will do this for you. uses historical data and mathematical algorithms to anticipate price trends – simply enter the details of a particular NFL game you are interested in and you’ll get a suggestion on whether to buy or wait for a price drop.
The trick here is that there are no tricks. No secrets or gimmicks, you just have to be resourceful, vigilant, & persistent. It also if you’re adaptable and don’t mind making last minute plans. All of this might sound like a lot of work, but for many fans it’s better than watching the game from your couch and missing out on all the excitement and electricity.
