According to TiqIQ, prior to the announcement of Brady’s suspension, Patriots vs Steelers tickets for the Week 1 game had an average price of $618.08.
Tom Brady has been here many times before, but Sunday’s game will be a first for the Colts’ rising superstar Andrew Luck.
According to TiqIQ, the average secondary market price for the game on Saturday is $296.25, 44.5% above the average price across all 2014-15 Bruins tickets on the secondary market.
The New England Patriots come into the 2014 season with high expectations, but that’s nothing new for a team that consistently makes the postseason. Still, the Patriots have seen a huge increase in ticket price on the secondary market according to TiqIQ.
With high expectations come high-ticket prices. Patriots tickets cost an average of $414.22, with the highest single game average $554.87 when they host the AFC Champion Denver Broncos in November.
Interestingly enough, New England Patriots tickets have been priced much higher for recent regular season matchups against the Colts. When these two teams met in November of 2012, tickets rang in at an average of $386 dollars– an 84% premium over this week’s playoff game.
