One might think that the Indianapolis Colts, New Orleans Saints, Minnesota Vikings or San Diego Chargers – currently the four teams to lock up the top four seeds for the upcoming NFL playoffs – would also be the teams fans would be searching most for ticket deals on the secondary market.
Yet, the honor of the NFL’s most sought-after secondary market tickets goes to the Dallas Cowboys, according to the ticket search engine Web site FanSnap.
“We took a look at the playoff teams to see who had the hottest tickets and we were a bit surprised by the results,” said FanSnap spokesperson Christian Anderson. “The Saints and Vikings weren’t even in the top 5. The Dallas Cowboys took the top spot.”
The Cowboys are traditionally one of the NFL’s most popular teams, and in addition to making the playoffs again, the team moved into a new billion-dollar stadium this season.
Following the Cowboys and Colts, the next three teams in the Top 5 were the Philadelphia Eagles, Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots. The Eagles and Patriots have assured playoff spots, but the Steelers are still on bubble heading into their final regular season game on January 3.
Super Bowl tickets are currently being offered at an average price of between $1,800 and $3,000 per ticket, according to FanSnap.
