Giants-Packers averaging lowest ticket prices of divisional playoff games
It’s surprising, but Sunday’s NFC Divisional Playoff matchup between the New York Giants and Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field is seeing the cheapest average ticket prices of all four conference games this weekend. Tickets to see the Giants try to exact some revenge over a Week 13 loss to the Packers are currently going for an average price of $272, $131 less than the average cost to see the New Orleans Saints take on the San Francisco 49ers at Candlestick Park ($403). Forced to march into Lambeau riding a three-game losing streak, Eli Manning and the Giants nearly played spolier in December as the Packers looked to come away with their 18th consecutive victory. With 58 seconds remaining, it took an MPV effort from Aaron Rogers to drive the Packers within field goal range to ice the game.
So why the low ticket prices to see the rematch? Brokers are flooding the market trying to sell tickets which is lowering the overall market price. Right now there are just under 1000 active ticket listings for this game on SeatGeek, most of which are for multiple tickets. But are Packers’ fans thinking a trip to the NFC Conference Championship game is a foregone conclusion? Or are New Yorkers not making the trip out west to Wisconsin for the same reasons?
Right now on SeatGeek, the “get in” price for the game is $165 for seats in Section 134 Row 47 while the priciest option available is a suite for $17,150.
Oddly enough, the Packers lead by a mile when looking at average ticket prices for the Conference Championship games the following week. If the Packers go on to beat the Giants on Sunday, ticket prices to see either the Saints or 49ers play in Green Bay are averaging $644. If the Giants go on to beat the Packers, average ticket prices are looking to be substantially lower to see Big Blue play in either San Francisco ($584) or New Orleans ($501).
