Football is finally upon us! After months of waiting, Denver and Baltimore will begin the 2013 regular season tonight at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Broncos fans are eagerly awaiting the rematch of last year’s AFC Divisional Round and that is readily apparent by the movement we’ve seen for tickets on the secondary market.
As of right now, there are only 82 Broncos tickets available at Razorgator for tonight’s game. Less than a week ago, there were a couple thousand seats left available, so Broncos fans are eagerly spending their hard-earned money to watch the season opener in person. The get-in price is currently $81 and while it will most likely dip a little before kickoff, the supply is incredibly low so we may not witness a significant price drop.
The Broncos have two other September home games this season in weeks 3 and 4 against the Raiders and Eagles, respectively. Below, we’ve broken down some the average and get-in ticket price for each game, as well as some other interesting ticket nuggets of information.
Monday, September 23rd vs. Oakland – Average ticket price = $322, Get-in price = $104
This is the fifth most expensive Monday Night Football Game of the season, based on average ticket price, trailing only Cowboys at Bears, Bears at Packers, Ravens at Lions, and Vikings at Giants. It’s also the third most expensive home game of the season for the Broncos. Denver and Oakland have a storied history, so Broncos fans are always willing to spend a little more than against other opponents.
Sunday, September 29th vs. Philadelphia – Average ticket price = $353, Get-in price = $109
Other than when RGIII and Washington visit on October 27th, this is the most expensive home game of the 2013 regular season for the Broncos, both in average ticket price and get-in price. While the Eagles have struggled the past few seasons, they have star power in Michael Vick behind the helm and new coach Chip Kelly. In addition, Philadelphia only visits Denver once every eight years so this will be the only time to see them play until 2021. Add in the fact that this is the only Sunday afternoon game in September, before the weather really gets frigid, and you have plenty of reasons for the high ticket prices.
