Secondary market Broncos tickets 10% cheaper this week

Guest post by TiqIQ: 

Heading into Week 5 of the NFL season this Sunday, the Denver Broncos will head home to host the Arizona Cardinals at Sports Authority Field. Denver comes off a bye week following a difficult loss to the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks in Week 3. The Broncos schedule won’t get any easier this week with the Cardinals in town, either, as Arizona looks to keep its flawless 3-0 record intact. While the game may give a look into a potential postseason matchup, Broncos tickets will be below average and  serve as the third cheapest for a Broncos home game on the team’s remaining schedule at home, trailing games against the Bills and lowly Raiders later this season.

On the secondary market, the average price for Broncos tickets to this Sunday’s game is $287.47 on the secondary market, 10.3% below the season average of $320.83 at home. The get-in price starts at $112. The Broncos can attribute much of their high season average to an October 19 game against the 49ers at home, however, as that game currently sees a secondary average of $560.77. The Broncos will play their second highest-priced home game just four days later against the Chargers as part of Thursday Night Football. That game owns an average price of $353.18 on the secondary market and get-in price of $126.

While the Broncos have had ample time to recuperate after dropping a close game to the Seahawks on September 21, they’ll need to take a win away from the Cardinals this weekend or risk falling to their worst start to the season in the Peyton Manning era. The Chargers currently control first place honors in the AFC West and another loss could drop the Broncos into early-season obscurity. The success the Chargers have seen has been a large contribution to the increasing ticket prices for their stop in Denver later this month and the October 23 game may serve as an integral matchup between the two battling divisional teams.
