San Diego Chargers Tickets Up 12% on Secondary Market

SOUTH WINDSOR, CT--(Marketwired - Aug 5, 2015) - San Diego Chargers fans can expect to see an increase in ticket prices on the secondary market for the upcoming 2015 NFL season. According a recent study of NFL ticket prices by TicketNetwork.com, the Chargers have surprised many around the NFL with ticket prices up nearly 12%, compared to the same period last year, averaging $157; a trend consistent with the AFC as a whole, which saw average ticket prices up 8%.

There is intrigue across the AFC West division that has brought on the boost in Chargers' ticket prices. The division has a 5.64% increase in average price change, the fourth-highest in the league. With Peyton Manning on the downside of his legendary career, the door is open for the Chargers to take back the division they once dominated.

The Chargers will host the reigning AFC North Champion Pittsburgh Steelers Week 5 on Monday night Football in what has become the most in demand home game for the Chargers' upcoming season. The average ticket price has shot above $200, 26% greater than the second most expensive home game according to TicketNetwork.com. Other high profile San Diego Chargers home game tickets include Monday Night Football match-up Week 9 against the Chicago Bears and week 13 against the Denver Broncos, at an average of $152 and $146 respectively.

The Chargers are approaching the 2015 season with a sense of urgency with four star players, including starting QB Philip Rivers and veteran TE Antonio Gates, entering the final year of their contract. With that in mind, the Chargers have spent the off season rebuilding the offensive-line and signed new, young talent including first round RB Melvin Gordon to upgrade the roster.
