DENVER (CBS4) – Denver Broncos fans can still find tickets for the game, but they aren’t cheap.
Thursday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens is one of the most talked about NFL games and one of the most anticipated rematches since last season.
According to StubHub, tickets for the Broncos and Ravens rematch are pricey but selling. Currently there are about 900 tickets still available. Demand for the rematch is outpacing last year’s AFC divisional thriller by 8 percent as a ticket to Peyton Manning’s first playoff game as a Bronco sold for $266.
The following are some stats for Thursday’s game, according to SeatGeek.com:
– The average ticket price is $293.
– The game is the second-most in-demand game played at Sports Authority Field at Mile High since 2009, only second to Peyton Manning’s Denver debut against the Steelers last September. Ticket prices averaged $360.
– Price demand for this game is greater than when the two teams played in the AFC divisional round back in January.
– Thursday’s kickoff game is the most in-demand game of a Week 1 game for the NFL.
Be careful when buying tickets on websites like Craigslist. Before plugging in the credit card, do homework. There are too many examples of fans who have bought tickets and wound up watching the game from their couch.
