We’ve done some additional research into home ticket prices for the Broncos throughout the season, and we think we’ve unearthed some interesting findings that certainly lend credence to the theory that Tebomania has taken hold in Denver.

Weekly average ticket prices for Denver Broncos games have been on the rise since hitting a low of $122 the week ending Sept. 15. Since then, the average has climbed all the way to $181 for Broncos tickets sold within the past 7 days – a 48% increase. These averages take into account all Broncos home game tickets that move in a given week (whether it’s for that week’s game or a future game), so we feel it’s a good snapshot of fan purchase behavior.

News that Tebow would be taking over as the starting quarterback in Denver broke Oct. 12. The average ticket price for Broncos tickets sold through SeatGeek before that date was $108, while the average of all tickets sold after that point is $156. That $48 increase represents a 44% rise in average ticket prices since the Tebow starting announcement.

Out of the three Denver home games with the highest average ticket prices recorded this season, the top two are this past weekend’s miraculous win vs. the Chicago Bears ($186) and this weekend’s matchup with the New England Patriots ($167). The third-most expensive Broncos home game this season was the home opener vs. the Oakland Raiders ($153). Specifically for this weekend’s game against New England, the cheapest ticket listing on SeatGeek is a $149 ticket in Section 522.
