Packers hottest ticket in Jacksonville
GREEN BAY - The Packers are the hottest ticket in Jacksonville, and that tells you everything you need to know about why Green Bay has yet to play overseas.
Jacksonville is the most willing of NFL teams to take games to London, but even it won't give up a home game against the Packers. Here's why:
» Vivid Seats said the median ticket price of $196 is the Jaguars' most expensive home game of the season. It's $70 more expensive than the second-place game. The get-in price of $92 is nearly as costly as the overall median price for the season and higher than three of the team's seven home games.
»SeatGeek offers similar analysis. Sunday's game is the most in-demand Jaguars game since SeatGeek began tracking the secondary market in 2010. The average resale price of $219 per ticket is well above the $157 average set by Steelers-Jaguars in 2014. Even at that, it is less expensive than nearly every other Packers home game this season. The only cheaper game at Lambeau Field is Packers-Vikings on Christmas Eve.
SeatGeek says 5 percent of secondary market buyers live in Wisconsin, which is the double-edged sword for teams that like to host the Packers. They will fill their stadiums, but a lot of the filler will be wearing green jerseys.
