Eagles single-game tickets on sale
Single-game seats to Eagles games went on sale at 10 this morning, and as of 11 a.m. the Ticketmaster website was noting "Not many left" beneath each regular-season game.
Guess tickets aren't getting grabbed up quite as quickly as in past years, when they were sometimes gone within about a half-hour.
The curiosity, if not outright excitement, about new head coach Chip Kelly was expected to add to the always strong demand, though doubts persist about playoff hopes.
The toughest tickets are usually against the Dallas Cowboys (Oct. 20 this year) and the New York Giants (Oct. 27). Kelly's home debut, the opener against the San Diego Chargers (Sept. 15), should also be much sought, and the Nov. 17 division matchup with Washington could also be much desired, presuming the dynamic Robert Griffin III will fully return from injury to energize the Redskins.
Andy Reid, who landed in Kansas City after being fired by the Eagles at the end of last season, will bring the chiefs to Lincoln Financial Field on Sept. 19, but that’s a Thursday night, which could dampen fan interest somewhat.
For these reasons, the easiest games to get might be the three non-division games in December, against the Arizona Cardinals (Dec. 1), the Detroit Lions (Dec. 8) and the Chicago Bears (Dec. 22).
Prices range from $75 to $105, plus fees, with a limit of four seats per game.
All sales are through Ticketmaster. Go to ticketmaster.com (it's smart to have an account and be logged in as the time approaches), or deal with a phone rep by calling the national sales number, 1-800-745-3000.
Tickets will not be sold at Ticketmaster retail outlets or at Lincoln Financial Field.
