Seattle Seahawks Ticket Sales increase by 15% on Secondary Market

SOUTH WINDSOR, CT--(Marketwired - Aug 5, 2015) - With appearances in two of the past three Super Bowls, it is no surprise that the Seattle Seahawks own one of the highest average home ticket prices for the upcoming 2015 season. According to a study on NFL ticket prices by TicketNetwork.com, the Seahawks' average ticket price of $314 is the third highest average ticket prices in the NFL, surpassed only by the Denver Broncos and defending Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots. Despite a heart breaking loss in last year's Super Bowl, Seahawks ticket prices have increased over 15% from the same time period last year.

The Week 12 matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers is the most in demand game on the Seahawks schedule, with the average ticket price hovering around $390 and a "get in" price of $190. This season, the Seahawks will play in four of the NFL's top ten in demand games, which very well could be the driving force behind the rise in average ticket prices. Other highly anticipated match-ups this season include the home opener against the Chicago Bears and the continuation of their heated rivalry with the San Francisco 49ers. The average ticket prices for these games are $352 and $337, respectively.

"Despite the increase in home game ticket prices, fans are still buying in," says Ken Stone, Sports Specialist at TicketNetwork, "the Seahawks should add to their consecutive sell-out streak of 105 games."

The Seattle Seahawks are entering this season with a renewed determination to win a Super Bowl and have taken steps to make a third straight Super Bowl appearance a reality. Star QB Russell Wilson agreed to a four-year, $87.5 million contract extension. The Seahawks have also locked in All-Pro RB Marshawn Lynch paying him $31 million for three years.
