Yikes! World Series Tickets This Year Average $1,437, the Highest Ever
Tickets for the World Series are never cheap, but this year, they’re more expensive even then the Giants-Rangers series back in 2010. Though tickets for Game 1 in Kansas City averaged less than $500, the average gets dragged way up by the New York side of things. The Mets are in a new stadium, and they’re the Mets, so they’re a bit more expensive.
Here’s a breakdown thanks to Tiqiq.com:
- Game 1 @ KC: $496.90 avg. ($232 cheapest ticket)
- Game 2 @ KC: $745.25 ($282)
- Game 3 @ NYM: $1,760.57 ($705)
- Game 4 @ NYM: $1,653.22 ($589)
- Game 5 @ NYM: $1,640.27 ($595)
- Game 6 @ KC: $1,286.73 ($468)
- Game 7 @ KC: $1,606.56 ($612)
And then, some guys have slightly unrealistic expectations as to what their tickets will get on the open market:
Those are Cubs-Yankees prices right there!
