Secondary Market Chiefs Tickets Second Most Expensive For Opening NFL Playoff Weekend
The Kansas City Chiefs put in their bid to be the winners of the AFC West division when they defeated the Oakland Raiders 23-17 in Week 17 of the regular season, but the Denver Broncos defeated the San Diego Chargers to earn the right to play at home in the AFC playoffs.
The Chiefs (11-5), winners of 10 straight games, face the winners of the AFC South division, the Houston Texans (9-7), who finished the season on a three-game winning streak.
Of the four Wild Card games being played—two for each conference, the AFC and NFC—tickets to see the Chiefs are the second most expensive on the secondary market for the opening playoff weekend. According to TiqIQ.com, the average ticket price for entrance into NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas on Saturday, January 9th is $287.58 with a get-in price of $109. The average ticket price has not shown much movement in either direction in the days leading up to the game and has pretty rather steady.
The only game more expensive during the opening playoff weekend is the when the Washington Redskins host the Green Bay Packers on January 10th at FedEx Field with an average ticket price of $388.25 with a get-in price of $146.
Chiefs fans can support their team on the road by booking a flight to Houston through Hipmunk.com. A round trip flight for one person to Houston from Kansas City is less than $290 if landing on the day of the game. Hipmunk also has Houston hotels starting from $38 for one person for one night if arriving on January 9th.
Obviously it did not happen, but if the Chiefs were to play a home game in the AFC Wild Card round it would’ve trumped prices at NRG Stadium in Houston. Again with data from TiqIQ.com, Chiefs tickets had an average price of $459.51, which is more than $150 more expensive than the current price for Saturday’s game.
If the Chiefs are to advance against the Texans, they’ll play the Denver Broncos for the third time this season. The two AFC West counterparts split the season series this year and oddly enough, won at each other’s stadiums.
