Provided by TiqIQ:
The Seattle Seahawks enter the 2014 season riding high after claiming their first Super Bowl title in franchise history last season. The success of the Seahawks has caused secondary ticket prices to rise significantly since last year and upcoming home games at CenturyLink Field continue to rise in price with just over a month remaining before the team’s first home game. According to TiqIQ, Seahawks tickets for the 2014 season have an average price of $405.82, the highest secondary market average in the NFL. This is a significant boost in comparison to last season’s average price of $335.01 at CenturyLink Field, marking a 21.1% increase in secondary ticket average from last year.
In what will undoubtedly be one of the most anticipated matchups of the season, the Seahawks will welcome the Packers in their home opener on September 4 and will have the highest average secondary price of the season for the Week 1 games. The average price for Seahawks vs Packers tickets is currently $560.68 on the secondary market, 38.1% above season average, with a get-in price of $174. The game falls just short of the Seahawks’ top-priced game of 2013, which was played against the Saints and had an average price of $561.72. The Seahawks currently have two home games averaging above $500, with their Week 3 Super Bowl XLVIII rematch against the Broncos being the team’s second most expensive game on the secondary market. The average price for Seahawks vs Broncos tickets is $503.27, 62.99% above the season average, with a get-in price of $167.
While each home game on the Seahawks schedule currently holds a secondary average above $300, the team’s cheapest game at home will be against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 12. The average price for that game is $308.77, 31.43% below season average. The Seahawks will welcome the St. Louis Rams for their final home game of the regular season on December 28 and the divisional matchup holds the second cheapest secondary price behind the Cardinals game at $310.95 for Seahawks vs Rams tickets, 23.3% below season average. The Seahawks’ cheapest home game of the 2013 season was played against the Jacksonville Jaguars and held an average price of $211.08, marking a nearly $100 year-over-year disparity between cheapest Seahawks games.
The Seahawks are again heavy favorites to make a deep playoff run following their Super Bowl victory last season and their four prime time games this season certainly emphasize the team’s monetary importance to fans, upper management and broadcast networks. As secondary market prices continue to rise, expect the Seahawks to remain a dominant force, both on the field and in the ticket box office.
