MLS Ticket Information
Major League Soccer has been on the rise in recent years in the United States as both teams and fans have been growing since its first season in 1996. In part due to a growing fan base, the recent surge in popularity amongst the MLS can be attributed to the individual athletes as well. From David Beckham to Landon Donovan and international stars like Thierry Henry, the accumulation of such familiar faces to the MLS has played a major role in the MLS ticket demand over the past decade.
Where performance can have a dramatic effect on the price of tickets in other sports, soccer appears to be the exception. Whether it’s the fans loyalty or not, teams like the New York Red Bulls, who have never been among the top teams, currently holds the most average expensive ticket price in the MLS ($178 per ticket).
The Sporting Kansas State's current standing in the 2016 MLS Playoffs has created an increase of 165% to the average ticket in past events from $37 to this year's average ticket price of $98. Similarly, the 2015 MLS Champions, Portland Timbers' ticket prices have changed drastically with their average ticket price reaching $45 from past events has reached its limit due to the absence from the 2016 MLS Playoffs. The cheapest ticket price currently as the playoffs approach is $30 for a DC United game.
