The midseason collarbone injury to star quarterback Aaron Rodgers hindered the on-field success of the Green Bay Packers last season, but the team was still able to earn Division Championship honors in a depleted NFC North. With Rodgers fully recovered and ready to lead under center as the 2014 season quickly approaches, the Packers will see a considerably higher season average for secondary tickets in comparison to last year. According to TiqIQ, the season average for 2014 Green Bay Packers tickets at Lambeau Field is $238.54 on the secondary market, up 21% from last year’s average of $197.94. With high expectations to clinch their fourth consecutive division title this season as Aaron Rodgers returns, the Packers have continued to see ticket prices rise on the secondary market.
A Week 10 game against the longtime rival Chicago Bears, on Sunday Night Football, will serve as the Packers’ most expensive game of the year at Lambeau Field on the secondary market. The average secondary price for Packers vs Bears tickets is currently $297.79, 24.8% above season average, with a get-in price of $137. The team’s highest-priced game this year won’t hold a candle to last season’s priciest game, which had an average price of $323.07 against the Lions in Week 5. The second most expensive game on the Packers schedule this season will be the home opener against the Jets on September 14. The average price for Packers vs Jets tickets is $278.13 on the secondary market, 16.5% above season average, with a get-in price of $137.
All but one home game on the Packers schedule holds an average secondary price above $200. The team’s cheapest secondary ticket average will be a Monday Night Football game against the Falcons in Week 14, as the average price for Packers vs Falcons tickets is $168.51 on the secondary market. The game is currently 29.3% below season average and holds a get-in price of $87. Coincidentally, the Packers’ cheapest home game last year was against the Falcons and also served as the penultimate home game of the season. The absence of Aaron Rodgers certainly played an integral part in the reduced price, as average price for last season’s Week 14 matchup was just $92.55. This marks an 82% increase in a year-over-year comparison between cheapest Packers games on the secondary market.
The Packers will hope that the recuperated health of Rodgers will lead them back into the playoffs following an early exit from postseason play after suffering a final-second loss to the 49ers in last year’s NFC Wild Card Game. The increase in secondary ticket price is also accompanied by Green Bay’s intent to induct beloved quarterback Brett Favre into the Packers Hall of Fame in the summer of 2015, which the team publicly announced earlier this week. That could already lead to 2015 prices being even more expensive.
