AFC Championship Game News
(UPDATE – 1/12) The New England Patriots have made it to the AFC Championship Game for the past four seasons. Three of those games have been at home and this year’s game against the Indianapolis Colts will be the most expensive AFC Championship Game at Gillette Stadium since at least 2010. Currently the average price for the game is $569.17, 7% above the average price two seasons ago against the Baltimore Ravens.
While the game will be the most expensive in New England, it does not come close to last season’s game between the Patriots and Denver Broncos at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. That game had an average price of $740.13 and remains the most expensive AFC Championship Game on the secondary market to date.
(UPDATE – 1/5) The New England Patriots will look to forget about their poor performance in loss against the Buffalo Bills on the last day of the regular season as they get ready to host an old nemesis in the Baltimore Ravens this Saturday at Gillette Stadium. New England will relish this opportunity as the Patriots suffered a bitter loss the last time these two teams played in the postseason at the 2013 AFC Championship game.
Patriots tickets for Saturday’s game are down 12% since the Patriots clinched a playoff berth. Now, the game has an average price of $332.82 on the secondary market, with a get in price of $130. The Patriots are heavily favored in this matchup on paper considering how well New England’s played during most of the season but most Patriots fans would rather have a different opponent in the Divisional round as the Ravens have caused a lot of mischief to New England the past few seasons in postseason play.
