Despite Playoff Chances, Baltimore Ravens Tickets at Lowest Point In A Decade
December 7, 2017
The Baltimore Ravens are on a three–game win streak, have a better than 50 percent chance of making the playoffs and are playing the Sunday night game against the against the AFC North-leading Steelers this week. Despite their somewhat surprising success, the price for Ravens tickets at M&T bank stadium is at its lowest point in the eight years that TicketIQ.com has been tracking prices.
Ticket prices currently average $156, despite the fact that a playoff appearance would be the Ravens first since the 2014 season and fifth since 2010. By comparison, it cost an average of $228 to see the Ravens play in 2010 (lost Divisional Championship), $297 in 2011 (lost Conference Championship), $213 in 2012 (won Super Bowl) and $199 in 2014 (lost Divisional Championship).
Tickets for the final two home games currently range between $34-$592 for the Dec. 23 game against the Colts and between $26-$1,681 for the Dec. 31 game against the Bengals. A fourth-row seat behind the Ravens sideline in Section 125 can be had for $208 for the Colts game, while a 12th row seat behind the home sideline in Section 128 for the Bengals game is currently listed on TicketIQ.com for $169.
While the Ravens lack of a big star has not helped keep demand higher, it's an opportunity for fans to see their hometown heroes for less than ever before. While much of the discussion on NFL this season has been about systemically lower demand, it seems to be market-specific as several potentially playoff-bound teams like the Chargers ($162 in 2106 vs. $282 in 2017), Chiefs ($114 vs. $179) and Lions ($145 vs. $203) have seen significant increases in prices for their tickets on the secondary market. None of those teams, however, is better than 6-6, while the Ravens enter Sunday’s game with a 7-5 record and with a win Sunday night, a path to the post-season.
