Two days out, Phillies tix prices remain steady

It looks like the average ticket prices for the four Phillies home games have remained stable over the past couple of days. StubHub's daily report, released a couple of minutes ago, showed the average price for tickets to the four potential games is $241. Game 1 ($238) and Game 2 ($236) are showing up on the low side; Game 6 ($261) and Game 7 ($266) are on the high side.

The cost of tickets sold for Game 1 on Thursday night has ranged from $75 for standing room range to $995 in the Diamond Club behind home plate. Around 1,500 are still showing to be available for Thursday and 2,100 for Friday. Numbers in that range exist for Game 6 and Game 7.

Tickets for the Phillies-Brewers series at Citizens Bank Park sold for less than $150; significantly lower than the $270 average for last year's NLDS between the Philllies and Rockies.

According to StubHub, fans buying tickets for the three possible World Series games here are paying an average of $864.

Tickets are averaging $164 for the three possible games at Dodger Stadium.

In the other series, folks wanting tickets to Fenway Park for Games 3, 4 and 5 are paying an average of $319, while the average selling price for the four potential games at Tropicana Field in Tampa has leveled off at $165.

ABOUT THIS BLOG:
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.
