With the NFL schedule release came word that the Green Bay Packers were planning to retire Brett Favre’s number when the team faces the Chicago Bears on Thanksgiving night. Pretty much immediately, ticket prices for that game shot through the roof.
Someone from the ticket site Rukkus told us that is their most expensive ticket of the entire NFL schedule. They ranged in price from $357 to $867, as of Wednesday afternoon. On Seat Geek, the cheapest option was $391 as of Wednesday afternoon. On StubHub, it was $419.
Other games’ lowest ticket prices are between $114 (at Minnesota) and $279 (Seattle) on StubHub. They range from $100 (at Detroit) to $279 (Seattle) on Seat Geek.
You get the picture.
You’re going to get to pay through your nose if you want to be in the building when the Packers unveil the No. 4 on the inner facade of Lambeau Field.
And as the game gets closer, you can only expect the prices to go up.
Think there will be any drunken brawls that day? Go PACK Go!!!
I’m rich, bitch!
Wolfie, opportunity knocks….
Buy the tix now, sell them fir profit in November and feel good that you didn’t waste your many going to the game…
Total Win-Win, mein Freund…..
I hate to say it, but I am willing to bet the Berty nutlickers will drive the prices to thousands of dollars, not unlike the last home game for Derek Jeter. You could not get into (New) Yankee stadium for under 5k.
How many of these “Packers fans” were donning purple in 2009 or 2010?
I really wish the game were at the start of the season so we could just get it over with. Between high level brass in the front office choreographing this to ensure no unpleasantness or open dissent, combined with the legion of nutlickers who will throw thousands of dollars to fawn at their false idol, it will be a most shameful spectacle indeed. Nevertheless, there are the silent columns throughout Packerland who remain steadfast and will NEVER go along with this, who will never buy overpriced books, videos, other special edition memorabilia.
i was all set to call my mastercard chase sapphire card concierge, and arrange to jet into the nearest international airport, limo to the game, and then clamber up to my reserved sky box so i could be close to the “Ring of Honor” one last go before its golden oval G aura became sullied for all time.
then i remembered that it is a thanksgiving day game and they are always available to view on national TV, even though i am light years away from GB, just like it was in 1953 when our town got its first TV station, WKBT-TV. priceless.
It’s just so uncomfortable to watch him cry through some speech. Why do I want to see this?
