This year the Seattle Seahawks finally dethroned the legacy of the New England Patriots for having the highest average ticket costs in the National Football League for secondary sales. The total costs are $466 for an average home ticket price. The Patriots were slightly behind at $454. The data comes from an online ticket re-seller called TicketIQ.
– These Seahawk ticket sales represent a 7% rise form the previous year.
– The average NFL ticket cost is $248 for secondary pricing.
– This puts the Seahawk prices not far from double the average team price.
The Seahawks also scored #3 on the most team Jerseys sold according to an analysis by the Wall Street Journal. Teh Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers take the number 1 and 2 spot respectively.
In 2015, Seahawk Quartback, Russel Wilson, was the NFL’s greatest seller of jersey and merchandise products for a single player according to the NFL website. The team appeal of the Seahawks appears to out-size both their team standing (four teams went farther in the play-offs than Seahawks in 2015) and their city/state home population compared to many other big population franchises.
