Not only are the ratings tumbling, but NFL ticket prices are falling as well. You can now get into an NFL game for about the price of a cup of coffee.
Is the NFL maybe rethinking their social justice warrior strategy? Obviously not as NFL teams are receiving $89 million in “settlement” money to help fund social justice charities. Where did the $89 million come from? It was redirected from veterans and breast cancer charity funds.
How easy was it to get into the Bills game today? A lower level seat in section 128 could be had for $3. Even seats on the fifty-yard line could be had for $30. Seats like these used to never become available.
Per Daily Wire:
Obviously, seats for the Bills (who are 6-6) and the Colts (who are even worse), aren’t among the most in-demand tickets in the NFL. But even big-name teams aren’t faring much better. Tickets to see the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field are going for around $20. Tickets to see the Green Bay Packers start at around $10.
Not all teams are in the bargain basement, but tickets are available for nearly every NFL franchise at deeply discounted prices. The Pittsburgh Steelers have some of the nation’s most rabid fans. But snagging a seat at Heinz field will run you only around $65. In previous seasons, Steelers tickets could cost as much as $250 per game — when you could get them.
Things are getting so desperate, reportedly, that some NFL broadcasts are hiring extras to pose as fans. The listing is unconfirmed, but one Philadelphia newspaper claims that FOX advertised for “actors, models, and talent” to work Sunday’s game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Los Angeles Chargers.
The NFL is a mess and we all know how it got there.
