For the first time in a long time, there’s reason to believe the hype in Oakland. While the Warriors are convincing fans early that they’re poised for a fifth straight postseason berth, the Raiders are on the verge of snapping a 14-year playoff drought at O. co Coliseum. That success is translating into big ticket prices on the secondary market – both domestically and internationally – through the end of each team’s respective season.
With the Warriors playing in 36 more home games this season, the average resale price for Warriors tickets on TicketIQ is currently $354. That is cheaper than last season’s record-setting average of $507, though that number is nothing to laugh at – the Warriors are the most expensive team to see in the NBA during the 2016-17 season.
The Warriors will host the Cavaliers and Clippers in their most expensive remaining home games. The defending champion Cavaliers will be in town for a Finals rematch on January 16 and the average resale price for tickets is now $669. If looking just to get past the gates, the cheapest tickets are priced from $200 each. The Clippers travel north to the Bay Area 12 days later, and tickets average $510 with a $137 get-in price.
As for the Raiders, four more home games on the docket, including a trip to Mexico against the Texans this Monday as part of the NFL’s International Series. Over those four games the average price for Raiders tickets on the secondary market is $313. At 7-2 entering Week 11, the Raiders are locked in a first-place tie with the Chiefs, but it is the third-place Broncos who are generating the highest ticket prices in the AFC West through the end of the season ($560 average).
A December 4 game against the Bills is the most expensive game remaining at O co. Coliseum this season, with tickets averaging $331 and the get-in price listed at $160. Two other games in Oakland are averaging over $300 – November 27 against the Panthers ($303 average/$149 get-in) and December 24 against the Colts ($301 average/$135 get-in).
