High Priced Tickets For The Chiefs, Not So Much For The Broncos
The Kansas City Chiefs have put themselves in quite a hole to earn one of the AFC Wild Card spots, starting at 1-5 through their first six games. But after losing Jamaal Charles for the season due to injury, they’ve adjusted nicely to win two-straight and put themselves in a long shot possibility to reach the NFL’s second season.
They are unlikely to catch the Denver Broncos within the division, as Denver started the season a perfect 7-0 until last week’s first defeat of the season at the hands of the Indianapolis Colts. The Chiefs have their final opportunity of the season to directly pick up one full game on the Broncos this Sunday, as the two teams meet at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
From Kansas City’s viewpoints, there are two games where Chiefs tickets on the secondary market have an average price of over $350 and this week’s game is one of them. The average ticket price of $361.71 with a get-in price of $142 is second only to the Chiefs’ road game against the Oakland Raiders at O.co Coliseum on December 6th that currently has an average ticket price of $366.45 with a get-in price of $106.
The Chiefs aren’t that high on the Broncos list of games in terms of secondary market prices. According to SeatSmart.com, Denver Broncos tickets for this Sunday ranks fifth out of their remaining eight games. The average ticket price was as high as $522.87 on November 3rd but has been declining since reaching that peak to the current average ticket price seen today. Fans attending the game can find Sports Authority Field at Mile High parking starting at $5 with eight locations remaining through ParkWhiz.com to make entering and exiting the stadium the easiest it can be.
The first meeting between the two teams was back on September 17th at Arrowhead Stadium for Thursday Night Football. After Peyton Manning tied the game with less than a minute remaining with a touchdown pass to Emmanuel Sanders, Charles fumbled the ball on the next play (after the kickoff) and the Broncos returned it for a touchdown to stun the Chiefs and the crowd.
