Well...Just heard that the average price per ticket is up to $4,300.00. Some are going as high as $19,000.00 per ticket.
Of course these originally were in the $700.00-$900.00 range.
It boggles the mind and reminds me of the old P.T. Barnum quote "There's a Sucker Born Every Minute".
How much would you be willing to pay for a seat? Would it matter more if your team was playing? What about if the game was closer to your area or even in your own fan stadium?
This will be my first year buying season tickets so hopefully the vikings go, if I win the opportunity to buy tickets I will sell the tickets and go on vacation(possibly to the area of the superbowl) and watch the game on tv. Would be a easy way to make a couple thousand dollars.
Face value of the tickets, form the NFL, is $700 or $900.
The report I heard (Could have been wrong?) Said individual tickets were now going for $4300.00 Nodak (On Average). That seemed high to me as well from the ESPN report you supplied the link on (Thanks BTW)
They also reported a few sales (More than one) were made for $19,000,00 ea.
This was on our local news out here in CA.
There aren't any single tickets being sold, and if you look at stub hub the prices reported are all in pairs.
A lot of the ~$20k sales I would have to think are package deals, including hotel and stuff.
There are a lot of those going around too.
Well....In either case the most I would pay (EVER) and this only if the Vikings were playing would be $1000.00. Honestly...I would feel cheated paying that, but it would do it.
Congrats again on your Tickets Nodak....Good Luck with that!
