No, not the players or owners, although critics might assign the descriptive to the latter during a time of frustration when a team is losing.
And, indeed, both the Panthers and the Saints have been losing.
But, actually, “Cheap” in terms of tickets. And, let us throw in the word, relatively, so.
As of Monday of this week, according to Jason Lawrence, the Founder and CEO of Tiqiq, a popular event ticket boutique where emblazoned on the company logo, "tickets meet intelligence", the average price for Saints -Panthers tickets is $127. Surprisingly, that's the second-cheapest home game for the Panthers, ahead of only their December 14th game against the Buccaneers.”
Would seem to be surprising given the game actually means being top of the heap of a bad bunch of South Divisioners 2014 of the Western Conference of the NFL. Whichever team wins tonight takes the division lead. The New Orleans Saints sit at 3-4 while the Panthers are 3-4-1.
Actually, maybe the ticket prices are not so surprising at all.
Lawrence noted that the game is on a Thursday night and traditionally, the weekday night games generally attract a pretty but cheaper price compared to the Sunday gridiron games.
According to Lawrence, the Saints game against 49ers, “is the most expensive game of the year at the Superdome, at an average price of $333. That price is up 2% from a week ago.”
Below is the Saints five year average price on the secondary market.
