While a lot of NFL stadiums across the country have been bare this season due to the pandemic, both stadiums hosting the AFC and NFC title games this weekend will have fans in them.
At a very high price.
The Kansas City Chiefs will play host to the Buffalo Bills in this weekend’s first title game Sunday afternoon, and though it will be the third straight year in which the Chiefs have hosted the AFC title game, ticket prices for the game are sky high.
PFT reports that right now, the average price for the Arrowhead affair is a whopping $1,332 a ticket.
The ‘get in’ price for fans is $882. Now remember that Arrowhead Stadium normally seats 76,416, but due to the pandemic, only 17,000 fans are going to be allowed to attend. High demand and low supply have thus led to the enormous price tags.
In the NFC, Green Bay Packers season ticket holders who opted in this summer for the chance to purchase tickets scooped up all 6,500 tickets to the title game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers through Ticketmaster.
By 1 pm Wednesday, all tickets were gone. Right now, there are no tickets on any website like Stubhub which would normally sell tickets via third party.
If fans in Green Bay do decide to list their tickets, the asking price will likely put the price of the Chiefs-Bills game to shame.
With only 6,500 tickets available for the looming matchup between Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady, it wouldn’t be a shock to see ticket prices well into the thousands.
