Average ticket in secondary markets is costly

Rob Leifheit-US PRESSWIRE

If you're planning to watch the Bengals and Packers this year, you might want to save a little more than usual.

If you're looking to visit Paul Brown Stadium for a regular season game, tickets might be a little more than you're expecting especially if you're purchasing through a ticket provider.

According to Steve Watkins with the Cincinnati Business Courier, the average ticket for Cincinnati's week three meeting against the Green Bay Packers will run $168. And we're not even talking about the climax of the ticket roller coast costs (some high enough to buy The Beast).

Ticketmaster, SB Nation's ticket partner, lists one ticket in section 109 (just off the 50-yard line) in row 16 at $1,294. That's the most costly. Most tickets in the 300 section appear to be under $100, except in section 344, which is selling for $1,120 (and perhaps the most lonely).

Then again, the game against Green Bay is under such heavy demand that Cincinnati applied a lottery system that would give fans an opportunity to purchase single-game tickets. They did the same thing against the Steelers for Monday Night Football, where the average ticket is running $157, per the Cincinnati Business Courier.

Currently, the average ticket for the entire season is $134, which ranks No. 26 of the 32 NFL teams, below the average $203.75 in the league, and way less than the $431 average cost to purchase one ticket in New England.

And the league worries about attendance?
