Average price for today's ticket settles in at $220

Turns out that tickets to today's game at Citizens Bank Park sold, on average, for $220. That's slightly less than what they went for yesterday. For playoff games, StubHub sales stop two hours before game time.

The most expensive ticket sold was $1199 for a spot in the Diamond Club.

At this moment, the average price for Game 6 tickets next Friday is $253. There are about 3,000 posted on StubHub's site, ranging from $120 to $4300. Game 7 tickets are selling, on average, at $266. Certainly, some of the local ticket agencies and other secondary online spots also will have access; figure those average prices to rise if the Phillies come home with an opportunity to clinch next Friday night. And Game 7's average price no doubt will escalate by late next week. 

If you can find a cheap flight, StubHub is showing lots of inventory at a lower price for the games in Los Angeles. There are approximately 3,500 tickets left for Game 3 on Sunday. Average ticket prices for the three potential games out there is $153, compared to $225 at Citizens Bank Park. The lowest priced ticket was for Game 4, an average of $148. The price range was $5 for a spot in the top deck up to $2500 for a ticket in the Dugout Club. The average price for Game 1 is $156 and for Game 5, on Wednesday, is $155.

About this blog
Paul Vigna still has the seat he wrestled out of the concrete at Connie Mack Stadium parked in the finished basement, a 1980 Phillies championship mirror hanging above it. Now, why he’s kept an autograph of former Flyer Bruce Gamble on a sheet of Hockey Hall of Fame paper is another story. A native of Philly who grew up in Lansdale, he’s an assistant sports editor at the Daily News in charge of special projects who has written two columns related to sports and consumers: View From the Seats and Savvy Consumer.

Athletic contests were, for a long time, simply fun and games. Nowadays they’re just a small part of a sports entertainment industry that puts billions of dollars into play and a number of issues into motion. Moneyball indeed. You might be closer to the action than ever before, but that privilege comes at a price - and often it’s beyond what you can afford.

With that as the backdrop we’ll use this blog to dig out stories and swap advice about how the fan experience is changing and what it’s costing you now and in the future. Some of it will educate, some will let you vent. And in a sports panel format, it should allow for a consensus of opinion that can carry some weight.
