Chiefs Ticket Prices Up By $80 In 2014

Posted By on Mon, Apr 28, 2014 at 3:30 PM

On the surface the Kansas City Chiefs and the New Orleans Saints are two fundamentally different teams, which they are, but upon further investigation it can be made that the two are actually very similar teams. The Chiefs are a team built on defense and running the ball and on the other hand the Saints are at the forefront of the high scoring pass happy NFL we have known to come and love. Last season there were some definite highs and lows to the Kansas City Chiefs team but overall the trajectory of the Kansas City Chiefs season was very similar to that of the New Orleans Saints.

For instance both began the 2013 season on somewhat of a hot streak as KC went undefeated through their nine games while the Saints went 6-2 in the same span. Both teams then hit a rough spot and finished the season with identical 11-5 records

These two teams had almost identical paths for their seasons which one could surmise that ticket prices would be consistent with one another, however that would be incorrect. A season ago the Chiefs had an average ticket price of $146.50 for their games at Arrowhead Stadium while Saints tickets were 70% higher on average and clocking in at at the pricey $249.72.

Next season prices remain basically unchanged for the Saints, but since Kansas City will have significantly higher expectations in 2014 this will be reflected in their ticket prices. Come the start of the season the Chiefs will see a bump of over $80 in their average ticket price to $227.82; up a total of 55.5%. Additionally the Chiefs most expensive game will come at Mile High Stadium against the Denver Broncos in Week 2 which will be going for the hefty price tag of $514.75 per ticket. The Chiefs made huge strides in 2013 under the tutelage of Andy Reid by going from the worst team in the NFL to one of the top tiered teams in the league and will now be priced accordingly.
