Secondary Prices For Jets, Packers Games Plummet Amid Poor Seasons
Secondary marketplace TickPick noted prices on average for NFL Jets games have "tumbled" 20% since the start of the team's six-game losing streak that began in October, according to Stephen Edelson of the ASBURY PARK PRESS. After a Week 6 victory over the Colts to improve the Jets to 3-3, the "average home listing price was $220 through the remainder of the season." That price is "now at $175." The average price on TickPick for the Jets' next home game against the Texans on Dec. 15 is $105, with tickets "available for as little as $22, which is actually high when you start sifting through what's available on the wide array of online resellers." On StubHub, fans can "get through the turnstiles for just $17." That price is in "stark contrast" to the Jets' final game of the regular season against the Patriots in Foxboro, with the "lowest priced ticket on StubHub right now at $163." Ticket prices are "just the latest sign that the Jets have slipped into the NFL abyss" (ASBURY PARK PRESS, 12/5).
ON THE CHEAP: In Green Bay, Richard Ryman reported three of the Packers' final four games are "affordable" on the secondary market with the team's record currently at 4-7-1. The "lowest average get-in price" for home games against the Falcons and Lions and a road game against the Jets are at $80 or less, and they "could well continue to fall as the season winds up." This will be true "especially if the Packers continue to play poorly." According to TickPick, the average listing price for Sunday's home game against the Falcons "dropped more than 10 percent" after the home loss to the Cardinals last week. Packers-Bears in Chicago on Dec. 16 "remains costly," as $249 is the "lowest average get-in price." That is the "cost of playing a first-place team in its home stadium" (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE, 12/4).
