September 12, 2014
Earlier today we took a look at Indianapolis Colts tickets and how they've dropped in price on the secondary market over the last five years.Here is some of our Forbes article:
At a decline of 19.7%, Colts tickets have dropped more than only the Ravens and Chiefs who have the next biggest declines at 17.5% and 17.1%, respectively.
Having come off a tough loss in the Super Bowl to the Saints the season before, expectations in 2010 were high, and seeing a game at Lucas Oil Field cost an average of $180, according to TicketIQ. The next year, Peyton was out with a bad neck, Kerry Collins and Curtis Painter were under center, and the team won the least number of games since moving into Lucas Oil Field. Not since the days of Lindy Infante and the RCA Dome had the Colts been so bad. Over the course of the 2011 season, prices plummeted and by the end of the season, the average price for Colts tickets had dropped 62% from 2010 and tickets could be had for under $20 to almost any game. For the 2012 season, despite the rapid emergence of Luck, prices didn’t climb any higher than an average of $121. After Luck’s fairytale first season in which he became one of a trio of rookie quarterbacks to take their teams to the playoffs, prices climbed to an average of $139 in 2012.
