A new era is upon the Arizona Cardinals. After leading the Indianapolis Colts to the playoffs last season, Bruce Arians has taken over command and has retooled the roster to his liking. Carson Palmer is in at quarterback and former Cardinal Karlos Dansby is back to patrol the middle of the field on defense. Fans are hoping the team can hang tough in what is looking to be the most difficult division in football this year.
While hope for the future may be abundant amongst Cardinals fans, excitement for the present looks pretty bleak according to ticket prices on the secondary market. Of all NFL teams, only the Bills and Jaguars have a lower average ticket price than the $114.41 for Arizona Cardinals tickets. Two games have an average ticket price below $100 and only one game – the season finale against San Francisco – has an average ticket price above $125.
The home opener against Detroit has an average ticket price of only $110 and a get-in price of $18. In fact, there are three games with a get-in price below $20 (Detroit, Oct. 6th vs. Carolina, and Dec. 8th vs. St. Louis.) If you were to buy the cheapest ticket for every Cardinals home game, it would cost you only $247. Meanwhile, the cheapest ticket for division rival Seattle’s Week 2 matchup vs. San Francisco? $249.
Ticket Prices will surely rise and dip during the season, depending on how the Cardinals fare. However, if Arians can lead Palmer and co. to a strong record early this season, those fans looking to buy tickets will be treated to a very pleasant – and cheap – surprise.
