Thanks to the return of Brett Favre, the Minnesota Vikings matchup against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field Nov. 1 has become the hottest ticket in the NFL this season, according to ticket broker TicketCity.
Ticket prices for Favre's return to Lambeau — in a Vikings uniform — start at $325, TicketCity said. The signing of the Hall of Fame quarterback with the Vikings last week led to a surge of demand for Minnesota games.
“We sold more Vikings tickets in the 72 hours after the Favre announcement than the entire previous month,” Zach Anderson, chief operating officer of Austin, Texas-based TicketCity, said in a press release.
Based on demand in the secondary ticketing industry, the Vikings are now in four of the top 15 most in-demand games of the NFL regular season, the company said. The Vikings, however, were not among the top 10 games in September.
The Packers' Sept. 13 meeting against the Chicago Bears at Lambeau ranked fourth for the month with an average price of $268.79 and a TicketCity starting price of $150.
