If you think that ticket prices for NFL games have become higher, then a new study supports these feelings. According to data from Action Network, when comparing prices in 2021 with prices in the 2006 season, season ticket prices for NFL games have increased. And this is by an average of 68%.
So far, the Las Vegas Raiders have seen the biggest increase. Their average ticket price in their first season at the Loyalty Stadium was $153.47. It is compared with $62.23 15 years ago. Ticket prices have increased by $91.24 or 147%. The average ticket price of the five teams—the Seattle Seahawks, Green Bay Packers, San Francisco 49ers, Houston Texans, and Raiders—increased by more than 100%. The lowest increase for the Los Angeles Chargers was 25%. Their average income in 2021 was $78.38, compared to $62.82 in 2006. Los Angeles is one of only eight franchises whose prices have increased by less than 50%.
Overall, the average ticket price for the next season is $104.73. This is US$42.35 higher than the league’s 2006 average of US$62.38. Action Network compiles research data by looking at the average price charged by the franchise to season pass members. This is usually the cheapest option to buy any ticket and single-game ticket. And not considering the sinking of individual seat permits for franchise rights. This means that the actual price paid by most fans might be much higher than the total number of surveys. It is buying a single game through the team’s website, or considering the cost of seat permits, or even season ticket membership,
