(UPDATE 10/17/16) The Blue Jays' 0-2 series deficit to the Indians may be raising concerns across the Great White North, but fans can find some solace in the declining prices for Blue Jays ALCS tickets at Rogers Centre.
On TicketIQ, the average resale price for Blue Jays ALCS tickets across Games 3-5 is now $241.23. That marks a 39 percent drop from last Tuesday's average of $392.21. The Blue Jays are now the cheapest team to see during the League Championship Series.
With the Indians having the potential to clinch as early as Wednesday night, tickets for Game 4 can be found for as low as $56 each on TicketIQ. Only a possible Game 5 the following night owns lower ticket prices with a get-in price of $55. The Blue Jays have surpassed the Dodgers as the least expensive team to watch during the LCS. As they head home knotted at one game apiece with the Cubs, the Dodgers own a $315.72 average at Dodger Stadium across Games 3-5.
Blue Jays ALCS Tickets Averaging Just 3% Higher Than Indians ALCS Tickets
(ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED 10/11/16) The brooms were out during the 2016 ALDS, as the Toronto Blue Jays and Cleveland Indians each needed just three games to respectively knock out the Texas Rangers and Boston Red Sox. The two teams now set to meet for the best-of-seven ALCS beginning in Cleveland on Friday, and for fans with intentions of attending an upcoming game, prices for 2016 ALCS tickets on the secondary market are nearly identical in Cleveland and Toronto.
On TicketIQ, Blue Jays ALCS tickets at Rogers Centre are averaging $392.21. Game 3 next Monday is the only ALCS game in Toronto that currently owns an average resale price below $400, though Game 4 on Tuesday owns the cheapest available ticket at $135.
Don't expect tickets to be much cheaper in Cleveland. As it stands now the average resale price for Indians ALCS tickets at Progressive Field is $381.75. That makes the three possible games in Toronto just 2.7 percent higher on average than all four possible Cleveland games.
Check out a complete game-by-game ALCS price breakdown below, according to data provided by TicketIQ:
Just one other LCS since 2010 has posted a smaller average price margin than this year's ALCS. That was the 2014 NLCS between the San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals. That year, the Giants owned a $270 average ticket price across their three potential games at AT&T Park while the Cardinals posted a home ticket average of $276.16, marking just a 2.3 percent difference between both ballparks.
Both teams find themselves in the middle of the pack when looking at historical LCS ticket prices. Over the last seven seasons, 12 teams have owned a higher resale average at home. That includes last year's NLCS participants in the Chicago Cubs and New York Mets, whose 2015 record-setting prices could be rivaled by this year's Cubs team should they advance to the League Championship round.
