Secondary Ticket Market Has Soared Even As Economy Has Faltered
Published January 17, 2011
HOT TICKET: StubHub Corporate Communications Manager Joellen Ferrer said Sunday's Packers-Bears NFC Championship Game "would absolutely have the makeup to become our top-selling conference championship in company history." Ferrer added that she "would expect the price of tickets to soar." Ferrer: "I would expect the 'get-in' price to get to about $500, but we will see fluctuations all week as the market settles" (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 1/17). Milwaukee-based Ticket King VP Fred Benz said that the "chance to see a classic Green Bay-Chicago matchup in such a high-stakes game was driving early market demand" (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE, 1/17). In Illinois, Paul Biasco notes a "limited number of tickets for the NFC championship game will go on sale Tuesday afternoon," and ticket brokers "expect the Bears' matchup with Green Bay to bring in the big bucks." StubHub "expects ticket prices to average around $675 a seat" (Illinois DAILY HERALD, 1/17).
