Raiders & Texans Play In First-Ever International Series Game in Mexico

November 17, 2016


Mexico City will be the site of the NFL's fourth and final International Series game next Monday. Penning the Oakland Raiders and Houston Texans in the first Mexico-based NFL matchup since the 2005 Fútbol Americano game, it comes as no surprise that Monday's game at Estadio Azteca is generating massive ticket demand on the secondary market.

In fact, with the league's 11-year absence in Mexico coming to an end, Monday's Raiders-Texans game will be the most expensive International Series game held this decade.

On TicketIQ, the average resale price for Raiders vs. Texans tickets in Mexico City is now $483. That trumps the previous International Series high set by the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets in London in 2015, which averaged a $436 ticket for their showdown at Wembley Stadium. If looking just to get past the gates at Estadio Azteca on Monday, the cheapest tickets are now listed from $351 each.

The Raiders head south with a 7-2 record and tied with the Kansas City Chiefs atop the AFC West. They'll hope to create some distance in the division with a win in Mexico this weekend. The 6-3 Texans own top honors in the tight AFC South, where the Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts trail directly behind at 5-5 and 4-5, respectively.

All three previous International Series games this season were played in London. While Wembley Stadium has served as the main hosting venue since the International Series began in 2007, this year also featured the NFL's debut at Twickenham Stadium, where the New York Giants and Los Angeles Rams squared off in a Week 7 game.
