Favre on His Way to Vikings
Favre joining the Vikings shouldn’t by a total shock given the rumors surrounding Favre and the Vikings earlier this summer. Vikings fans were so sure Favre was going to be a Viking for the upcoming season that Viking ticket prices reflected the “Favre effect.”
The get-in price (lowest price) for tickets to Packers at Vikings on Monday Night Football had been $82 for the last few days. That price is now $199 (as of 5:30 p.m. PT)
The get-in price for tickets to the Vikings at Packers on Sunday, November 1 went from $149 to $339 during the same period.
When Brett announced that he’d stay retired, average prices for Vikings home game tickets went down by approximately $20 each.
In the graphic above, you can see the effect on Eagles ticket prices when Michael Vick signed late last week. Average ticket prices for Eagles home games increased by just over $20 each in a matter of days. Vick, while an exciting player to watch will be a back-up QB and may get playing time at other offensive positions. Favre, on the other hand, will be the starting QB for a team many expect to now be a Super Bowl contender.
Demand for Vikings tickets just went up. Vikings fans who don’t yet have tickets should expect average ticket prices to home games in the ticket market to go up by more that $20 each due to the “Farve effect.”
We expect Vikings tickets on the market to go up by approximately $30 each in the next few days.
