Record Breaking Ticket Prices for Warriors at Clippers
The Warriors take on the Clippers this Saturday at the Staples Center in Los Angles, and demand for the game is off the chart.
With an average resale price of $304, this marks the hottest ticket for any Clippers home game SeatGeek has seen since they began tracking secondary market data during the 2010-2011 season. Even more expensive than a handful of high-profile regular season games and all home playoff games, including the three Western Conference semifinal runs in 2012, 2014 and 2015.
On average, Clippers home games have sold for a resale price of $93 this season, less than a third of what tickets for this Warriors matchup is costing fans. It seems that the Clippers faithful can’t get enough of Steph Curry and the Warriors, as the average resale price of a ticket to see the Warriors has increased by 40 percent since Golden State’s most recent visit on November 19, 2015 ($217).
Just one season ago, Clippers fans could have seen the eventual NBA champion Warriors play at the Staples Center for an average resale price of $186 on March 31, 2015 and $182 on December 25, 2014 – both relatively good deals, considering a ticket to Saturday’s game is on track to cost more than 1.5 times as much on average.
This $304 resale price is also one of the top ten most expensive across the NBA so far this season – only nine matchups drove higher average resale ticket prices.
