GREEN BAY, Wis. – When the Green Bay Packers assembled for practice on Friday, it was 4 degrees below zero. The forecast for Christmas Day is a high of 10 and a wind chill of minus-5.
Who wouldn’t moderately spend Christmas in Miami?
Packers fans are renowned for traveling here, there and in all places to look at their team play. Paired with the chance to take in some sun, it’s little wonder why Sunday’s game between the Packers and Dolphins is the second-most expensive ticket within the NFL this week.
In response to data from SI Tickets as of early Friday afternoon, the common ticket costs $379.05. Only the massive NFC East showdown between the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys is costlier.
Tickets start at $156. That can get you an upper-deck ticket.
If you ought to get much closer to the motion, a seat in Row 31 of Section 118 – that’s right behind the Green Bay bench – costs $409. That’s plenty of money but a few hundred bucks lower than right now last week. A seat within the front row of Section 118 costs $906.
Unfortunately, fans hoping to search out sun and fun in Miami won’t be seeing the sun. While it’s 80 on Friday, it can be 59 and cloudy on Saturday and 55 and cloudy on Sunday. No less than the specter of rain has been reduced.
With the Packers having won two games in a row to remain within the playoff race, ticket prices for playoff reservations have increased. The typical Super Bowl reservation is $251. While that’s down about 71 percent from the Week 1 price of $869, it’s up sharply over the $107 from per week ago.
Before beating the Bears a pair weeks ago, lower-level end-zone reservations were $61 for the conference championship and $89 for the Super Bowl. Now, after back-to-back wins, those prices are $56 and $236. Divisional-round reservations are not any longer available.
The Packers will return home to face the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. Seats in Section 131, which is true above the tunnel, start at $210. Seats in Section 120, which is situated behind the Green Bay bench, start at $332.
The regular season will conclude the next week against the Detroit Lions. Seats in Section 131 start at $122; spots in Section 120 start at $199.
