The Lions’ Most (and Least) In-Demand Matchups This Season
Single-game tickets for the Detroit Lions went on sale last week, which means football season is right around the corner. As such, the folks at SeatGeek decided to look at the secondary market to help predict which of the Lions matchups will be the hottest, and which will be less in demand.
Whether it is due to the team missing out on the playoffs last season or Calvin Johnson’s retirement, tickets on the resale market are, on average, listed for $11 less than they were last season.
