Championship Game Ticket Trend: NFC Down, AFC Up
January 21, 2011
As you can see from the charts below, the trends of these two games are going in two different directions. While excitement reached a fever pitch earlier in the week for this historic NFC title game matchup and tickets soared to nearly $1200 a seat, it looks like the ticket sellers were a little more excited for this Bears-Packers matchup than the ticket buyers. They clearly weren't ready to pay Super Bowl-type prices for this game and since Monday the market has corrected itself as prices have dropped 25%, a trend that could continue into gameday.
On the other hand, tickets for the AFC game started out the week at an avg. of $474 and have seen a 19% rise in prices over that same 5-day span. Between the lower average cost and the close proximity of the two teams, prices are likely to continue to rise until kickoff on Sunday night.
