Buyers came … buyers saw … and buyers logged in and wiped out Ticketmaster’s allotment of NFC title game spots in a manner of minutes Tuesday.
With that online turnout — which featured a queue of thousands when tickets went on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Tuesday — the cheapest shot many fans had at getting into the NFC championship game vanished as quickly as it arrived. It showcased what secondary ticket market analysts have predicted since the matchup between the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers was set Sunday: This was going to be a searing hot ticket.
So far it has lived up to the hype, with the NFC title game currently stacking up as the most expensive conference title game in NFL history. According to industry search engine TicketIQ, the average price per-ticket hit $2,468 on Monday afternoon, with president Jesse Lawrence calling that cost “the most expensive conference championship game we’ve ever tracked.” That early figure ripped past the previous peak set last year between the 49ers and Los Angeles Rams, which touched $1,542 in average price per-ticket.
Secondary inventory for the game was still solidly high by Tuesday, fluctuating in the range of 4,000 to 5,000 tickets still available. If it remains that high, it could drive prices lower — but the limited general sale to the public by Ticketmaster was wiped out quickly, it’s possible inventory will start to dry up as buyers start to lose patience and take what is available. As of Tuesday afternoon, Lawrence said the peak average price was still strong.
“As of now prices are holding,” Lawrence said. “Get-in price dropped a bit, but overall the average is right where it was [Monday].”
