Price of NFL playoff tickets lowered to help fans
NEW YORK |
NEW YORK (Reuters) - The price of tickets for all NFL playoff games will be reduced by approximately 10 percent in response to the economic challenges facing fans, the league said on Wednesday.
The average price of playoff tickets for wild card, divisional and conference championships games last year was $121.
The specific league-wide average playoff ticket price cannot be determined until the home playoff venues are decided. Prices vary from market-to-market depending on costs for regular-season tickets.
"We want to be responsive to the economic challenges facing our fans," an NFL spokesman said on the league's website (www.nfl.com).
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell recently sent ticket pricing guidelines to all playoff contending clubs, authorizing for the first time a lower price for the wild card games than for divisional playoff games.
Those two rounds have traditionally been priced the same.
