Ticket Prices Continue To Fall For Premium Events
Want to see all three games of the Final Four? They now can be had for less than $450.
That's all three games, by the way. According to secondary ticket company StubHub , the average price of an all-session ticket strip has dropped to $441.
When factoring in the average price of a semifinals ticket ($415) and a championship game ticket ($290), the overall average is $399. How cheap is that? It's 39 percent cheaper than last year ($655), 30 percent cheaper than the 2007 Final Four ($578), 35 percent cheaper than 2006 and an amazing 41 percent cheaper than the 2005 Final Four in St. Louis.
Now, let's talk about Masters badges, which takes place the same week the NCAA champion is crowned. In the past, badges have typically run at around $1,000 a day.
The average price for a Masters badge, including Sunday, is now less than that, according to FanSnap.com, a new ticket search engine. FanSnap data shows that the cheapest day is Saturday at $794.53 per badge, while the most expensive day happens to be Thursday at $923.30 per badge.
