Affordable tickets available for Seahawks-Falcons game
Special to 710Sports.com
First overall pick Andrew Luck may have led the biggest turnaround in NFL history and broken the rookie passing yardage record. Second overall pick Robert Griffin III may have broken both the rookie QBR and QB rushing yardage records. But it is 75th overall pick Russell Wilson who will be playing for a trip to the NFC Championship game this Sunday in Atlanta.
According TiqIQ, Seahawks tickets were one of the biggest home draws in the NFL this year with an average ticket price of $293. This figure actually rose 32 percent from the start of the year, when the average ticket cost $199 on the secondary market.
The trip to Atlanta might actually be worth it for Seahawks fans, as tickets to the Georgia Dome for Sunday's game check in at just $207*, 35 percent above the Falcons tickets' regular-season average of $153.
Currently, the get-in price for Sunday's game is also a very affordable $35*. With 8,800 tickets still available, demand is clearly down and prices have started to fall – down 27 percent this week – so prices may continue to drop as game day approaches.
*As of Jan. 7, subject to change.
