Raiders’ tickets at Allegiant most in-demand in NFL

Updated May 13, 2021 - 5:34 pm

Raiders home games are the most sought after tickets in the NFL.

Six of the 10 most in-demand NFL games, including four of the top five, involve the Raiders at Allegiant Stadium, according to VividSeats, which tracks secondary market prices.

Of the top five, only Tom Brady’s return to New England with his Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which is No. 1 with an average ticket price of $1,376, eclipses four Raiders home games.

The Raiders’ season opener versus the Baltimore Ravens is No. 2 at $944. The Week 10 game against division rival Kansas City Chiefs is No. 3 at $823. The Week 7 matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles is N0. 4 at $673, and the Week 5 game against the Chicago Bears at $654 rounds out the top five.

A Week 3 game versus the Miami Dolphins ranked seventh, and a meeting with the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 18 was ninth, with an average ticket price of $600 for Miami and $503 for L.A.

The lure of Las Vegas and the new 65,000-seat stadium are drawing opposing teams’ fans to the market.

“Basically, it’s a really attractive destination for NFL fans to make the trip to watch their team play the Raiders and spend the weekend in Vegas,” said Steve Spiewak, a spokesman for VividSeats.
