The Flyers rank sixth among NHL teams for the average price of a ticket and 13th in its Fan Cost Index, according to Team Marketing Report's annual assessment that came out last Friday.
An average ticket to a Flyers game costs $60.25 this season. That's above the league average of $49.66 and an 8.2 percent increase over last season. Toronto tops that list, at $76.15 per ticket. Montreal ($64.26), Vancouver ($62.05) and Boston ($61.40) follow. Minnesota is fifth at $61.28, just ahead of the Flyers. On the low end? It wouldn't cost you much to attend games in Buffalo ($36.43) and St. Louis ($29.95). The Flyers visit Buffalo in November and March, and tral to St. Louis in late January after the All-Star Game.
An average premium Flyers ticket is $173.80, this second highest in the league. The New York Rangers have far and away the most expensive premium ticket, at $254.98. Toronto is third, at $168.14. The NHL's average for a premium ticket is $113.44. Carolina's premium ticket ($75.98) ranks lowest among NHL teams.
There are a few other interesting numbers among the average ticket prices. While Boston ranks among the top five in average ticket price, its premium ticket costs $88.93, well below the league average. Chicago, one of the league's downtrodden franchises, has an average ticket price of $52.22 and a premium ticket that averages $114.30. Washington ranks below the league average, at $41.66 (average ticket) and $130 (premium ticket)
