The New York Giants and New York Jets might play in the same stadium, but their tickets don’t carry the same price.
Tickets to a Giants game are more expensive than to any other team’s game, Credit.com reports. That team’s average ticket costs about $123, and the average premium ticket costs about $509.
The Jets come in at No. 6, with an average ticket cost of about $106 and an average premium ticket cost of about $344.
The league-wide average price for a ticket is $85.83, according to Credit.com. The 10 teams with the most expensive tickets are:
- New York Giants
- New England Patriots
- San Francisco 49ers
- Dallas Cowboys
- Chicago Bears
- New York Jets
- Washington Redskins
- Baltimore Ravens
- Philadelphia Eagles
- Green Bay Packers
Certain matchups can raise ticket prices substantially, however.
Take, for example, this past Sunday’s matchup of two of the teams listed above: the Cowboys and the Eagles. It was the most expensive game this week, Forbes reports.
The average secondary-market ticket price was about $414 — about 79 percent more expensive than the season average for Eagles tickets on ticket website TiqIQ.
That made it the most expensive game at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field since at least 2010, when TiqIQ started tracking secondary-market data.
