Forbes.com and TiqIQ, a ticket exchange company SB Nation recently partnered with, posted their findings of a study on the re-sale market of ticket sales. According to their findings, all 32 teams have a higher secondary market value. This surprises me given I have been a perennial scalper at events the last 10 years of my life and have seen thousands of empty seats across every level of Fedex.
I guess most people buy tickets days to weeks in advance, when prices are at their highest, but I found it shocking the Redskins were so high given last year the team was coming off the Jim Zorn era, in midst of a 6-10 season, and had a surplus of seats they could not sell outright. I mean...the Jaguars, who are consistently facing blackouts, have 125% resale rate?
Via our Redskins tickets portal, tickets for this week's Cardinals game start at $18 a pop!! Lower ball tickets start at $36!! That. is. absurd. I've contacted the author of this article for more info. Stay tuned.
The Top 10 list/prices after the jump: (Dallas is ranked dead last with only a 32% markup.
