As we enter Week #4 of the 2010 NFL Season, some teams have played well and gone undefeated, while others have struggled and have been unable to get a win. How does this effect a team’s FanDemand?
Every week, we sit down and look at all the NFL tickets listed on FanSnap — collected from ticket sites across the web. From this data, we can establish “FanDemand”: that is, the overall average ticket price for each individual team in the league.
We took a look at how a team’s record affected their FanDemand. We took each undefeated team, and each win-less team, and compared FanDemand rankings from Week #2 and Week #4 (this week). Take a look below to see how a team’s success or struggles may influence their average overall ticket price.
Undefeated Teams (3-0)
- Kansas City Chiefs: As of Week #2, the Chiefs were ranked 20th in FanDemand with an average ticket price of $153. In Week #4, Kansas City Chiefs tickets have climbed to 17th on our rankings, with an average price of $155.
- Chicago Bears: In Week #2, the Bears were ranked 3rd in FanDemand; in Week #4, they climbed one spot to #2. Chicago Bears tickets experienced a jolt in average ticket price, as it rose from $283 to $311 in three weeks. That’s a 10% increase in overall average ticket price.
- Pittsburgh Steelers: The Steelers are always high on the FanDemand rankings, only moving one spot down, from #4 to #5 between Weeks #2 and #4. Pittsburgh Steelers tickets still grew in demand, however, as the average ticket price rose from $271 to $275 in those weeks.
Teams Without a Win (0-3)
- San Francisco 49ers: The 49ers have dropped from 12th to 13th in FanDemand, as their average ticket prices have dropped from $203 to $190 from Week #2 to Week #4 (a 6.5% drop).
- Buffalo Bills: Average prices of Buffalo Bills tickets have remained the same since Week #2 at $118. Still, the Bills have moved up one spot in FanDemand, from 30th to 29th.
- Cleveland Browns: As of Week # 2, the Browns were 29th in FanDemand. Now, they are 31st. Cleveland Browns tickets, on average, have dropped from $120 to $113 in these weeks: that’s a 6% drop in price.
- Carolina Panthers: The Carolina Panthers have been stuck at 27th on the FanDemand rankings, while Carolina Panthers tickets have dropped from $133 to $128 (a 4% drop in average ticket price).
Probably the most telling number here is the drop in San Francisco 49ers ticket prices, as well as their drop in FanDemand rankings. It seems expectations are always high for the 49ers going into a new season. This year, they just haven’t gotten it all right yet, as reflected by their 0-3 record.
Chicago Bears fans are some of the most passionate in the country. Bears tickets have been in the top 5 FanDemand since the pre-season. With their success this season, can they rise to #1?
