Packers Hottest NFL Ticket

SOUTH WINDSOR, CT--(Marketwired - Aug 7, 2012) - Ticket Liquidator, a leading provider of hard-to-find and last minute tickets, announces that the Green Bay Packers, with an average ticket price of $276, are the hottest ticket in the NFL. Just a season removed from being the winner of Super Bowl XLV, the Green Bay Packers are considered by many to be the favorite to get back and win the Super Bowl in 2013. The New England Patriots, another Super Bowl contender, are the second-most in-demand NFL ticket with an average ticket price of $271. The Denver Broncos and the newly-acquired Peyton Manning, with an average ticket price of $259, round out the top three hottest NFL tickets.

"What looks to be one of the best teams in the league with perhaps the most dedicated fan base in the NFL combined to make the Green Bay Packers the most in-demand ticket in the NFL," says Andrés Hidalgo, Media Relations, Ticket Liquidator. "The Packers and Patriots are normally a very hot ticket, but the addition of Peyton Manning to the Broncos has pushed Denver from 10th most-expensive in 2011 to the third most-expensive NFL ticket entering the 2012 season."

The Kansas City Chiefs ($88) are the most affordable NFL ticket going into the 2012 season, followed by the Detroit Lions ($93) and the Cleveland Browns ($96). Average prices are based on more than 12,000 tickets sold on Ticket Liquidator since Super Bowl XLVI. Due to the nature of the secondary ticket market, ticket prices are subject to change and could currently be higher or lower.

The addition of Peyton Manning to the Broncos caused the average price of Broncos tickets to skyrocket almost 70% from an average of $153 in 2011 to $259 in 2012. But that wasn't the highest jump in terms of year over year increase, as the St Louis Rams saw a whopping 80% increase from last year, with the average price for a Rams ticket jumping from $69 last season to $124 in 2012. The Seattle Seahawks (59%) and the Jacksonville Jaguars (54%) also saw significant increases. Only two teams saw the average price drop, with tickets for the Detroit Lions dropping 13 percent from an average of $107 in 2011 to $93 in 2012, while the New Orleans Saints, embroiled in a coaching scandal that will cost Head Coach Sean Peyton a season, saw the average price drop 2.25%, or $2, to a $175 average this season.

Hottest Game of the Year? Cleveland at Dallas
