Football in St. Louis came back in a big way and the fans surely missed watching a team out there.
On Sunday, just over 29,000 fans came out to watch the Battlehawks completely blowout the New York Guardians in their home opener and it couldn’t have went any better.
Just look at this atmosphere:
According to Vivid Seats, tickets to BattleHawks home games will be some of the most expensive in the 2020 season.
- St. Louis BattleHawks: $86
- Dallas Renegades: $71
- Seattle Dragons: $62
- Houston Roughnecks: $60
“There’s a lot of fans out there who want to spend their cold Saturdays sitting at home or sitting in a stadium, watching a game, and so far so good from the XFL’s perspective,” says SeatGeek’s Chris Leyden.
“Right now, the average ticket is reselling for right around a hundred dollars, which is actually above every other teams’ home opener and by a wide margin,” Leyden says.
“It seems like the St. Louis market is exceptionally excited by the XFL,” Leyden says. “It shows that this city still has an appetite for football.”
