Las Vegas Raiders’ fans just can’t get a break on ticket prices when it comes to seeing their favorite team in person.
Ticket prices at Allegiant Stadium for the regular season is the most expensive in the NFL and the Raiders’ lone preseason game (the first with fan ever at Allegiant Stadium) for the Seattle Seahawks game August 14 were the most expensive in the league that week. Now, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports ticket prices for the Raiders’ preseason final at the San Francisco 49eers on Sunday are the most expensive in the final week of the preseason.
The Raiders-49ers preseason game in the Bay Area is drumming up interest on the secondary ticket market. The average price for a ticket is $172.09, according to TickPick, and is the most expensive ticket for the final week of preseason action. #vegas #raiders #raidernation pic.twitter.com/d0tjwzKr6K— Mick Akers (@mickakers) August 25, 2021
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that tickets for the 1 p.m. kickoff at Levi’s Stadium are in demand. It is the first time these two teams have played in the preseason in 10 years and there, of course, are a ton of Raiders’ fans in the Bay Area. The Raiders may have left Oakland, but the hearts of many fans in the Bay Area remain.
And it is going to cost them to see the Raiders this weekend.
