Ticket Prices for Sporting Events on the Rise

Ticket prices for sporting events have surged across the country, making it difficult for many fans to afford attending games. The cost of taking a family to a football game can easily reach hundreds of dollars. Year-over-year, ticket prices for sports have increased by 15%. This trend is driven by limited seat availability, increased competition among those with disposable income, dynamic pricing on ticket-resale platforms, and the construction of new stadiums with more premium seating options. As a result, attending games in person has become a luxury that only a few can afford. Team owners and major sports leagues seem content with prioritizing wealthy patrons over a full crowd.
