Two games of the Western Conference Finals are in the books, and the Oklahoma City Thunder head home to climb out of an 0-2 hole. While Thunder fans may not be riding as high as they were last week, fans that are still looking to secure tickets might have a bigger grin on their faces. Ticket prices for Game 3 tomorrow have fallen 20% since the start of the series and could stand to dip even further in price. Here’s a look at the data for Games 3 and 4 in Oklahoma City:
Game 3 - fans have paid an average price of $236 and a low of $60, Oklahomans make up 62% compared to Texans at 13%
Game 4 - fans have paid an average price of $285 and a low of $78, Oklahomans make up 48% compared to Texans at 22%
Prices Just as Nice in South Beach
The Miami Heat are up 1-0 in their respective series against the Boston Celtics, but ticket prices are not outlandish as some may have expected. In fact, last minute fans can score a ticket for tonight’s game in the $50-range. In fact, fans that have already purchased tickets on StubHub have paid an average price less than $200, with a low of $49. Quite a difference in pricing from last year’s Eastern Conference Finals versus the Chicago Bulls, when average prices for home games at the American Airlines Arena hovered in the $275-$315 range.
Stanley Cup Finals Tickets Fall Below $200
Tonight the Stanley Cup Finals begin, with the New Jersey Devils hosting the Los Angeles Kings in what we all hope to be an exciting Game 1. We’ve seen a ton of last minute purchases today, as prices noticeably fell in the last couple days. Why? Demand is still high, but the market has settled and now the fans that cannot attend are looking to quickly offload their tickets. Great for fans like me that plan way, way last minute… In fact, prices in New Jersey are nearly half the prices in Los Angeles.
