The New England Patriots are always one of the most difficult tickets in town. The Red Sox have 81 opportunities for a fan to attend a game, and the Celtics and Bruins have 41, so with only eight home games all season, demand far exceeds supply. Nonetheless, tomorrow night’s game against the Jets is an absolute bargain compared to the other seven home games later in the season.
A quick glance at tickets for the Patriots from TicketCity shows this is by far the cheapest game of the season. The get-in price is only $60, just a little over 50% of the next lowest get-in price ($111 against Cleveland on December 8th.) There are in fact 46 listings currently below $111, including several in the lower level. The cheapest lower level seating is $105 per ticket for a spot in Section 118, located on the west end of the Patriots sideline. The cheapest lower level ticket for any other Patriots games this season? $159 per ticket in the same section for the home finale against the Bills.
With the New York Jets projected to be a shadow of their former self this season (even though they’ve started the season 1-0,) perhaps fans are saving their money to attend games later in the season (headlined by a matchup with the Broncos on November 24th.) The fact that the game is on a Thursday night is also undoubtedly driving the price south. However, it is certainly unusual to see ticket prices so much lower compared to other games this season, especially for a home opener.
If you were saving up for a Pats game this season, you’re not going to find a better bang for your buck than tomorrow night. While ticket prices for the other seven home games will dip in price as we get closer to each kickoff, I would be very surprised to see any tickets reach the level that we are seeing for tomorrow night’s matchup. Make sure to take advantage while you can and cheer on the Patriots while they attempt to knock off a second straight divisional foe.
