Broncos only selling playoff tickets to people in Rocky Mountain area
Remember how we told you that the Seattle Seahawks are limiting their NFC Championship ticket sales to certain regions of the country to protect their home field advantage? Apparently that is a thing now, as the Denver Broncos are doing the same.
According to CBS Denver, Broncos tickets — which go on sale Monday — will only be available to buyers with a valid billing address in the Rocky Mountain region. That means if you don’t live in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming, Nebraska, Montana, South Dakota or Western Kansas, you might as well hop on StubHub.com and start shopping now.
Ticket prices for the AFC Championship Game at Sports Authority Field start at $90 through the Broncos’ ticket office. The cheapest ticket on StubHub.com is currently listed for $387.
Denver’s decision to only sell tickets to certain areas will likely have an even greater effect than the Seahawks doing the same. San Francisco is much closer to Seattle than the New England area is to Denver. Pricey tickets on the secondary market and cross-country travel will likely discourage most Patriots fans from making the trip.
