The Green Bay Packers will dust themselves off from their playoff collapse to the Seattle Seahawks and enter the 2015-16 season as one of the top Super Bowl contenders that everyone will be keeping an eye on. Their popularity around the league is rivaling even the Brett Favre era behind the spectacular play of quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Green Bay Packers tickets on the secondary market are on the higher side, with fans of opposing teams wanting to see one of the best offenses in football. With that said, CBSSports.com recently produced an article with the estimated travel miles for each NFL team. The Packers are in the exact middle, ranking No. 16 out of the 32 teams with 15,108 estimated travel miles.
Combining those two factors, detailed below are a few possible options for Packers road trips for the upcoming season, with travel options provided by Hipmunk.com.
11/1/2015 | Denver Broncos vs. Green Bay Packers | Sports Authority Field At Mile High | Average Price: $814.10 | Get-in Price: $345
With rumblings of the 2015-16 season being Peyton Manning’s last, Broncos ticket prices are right near the top of the entire NFL. The $814.10 average ticket price is the most expensive Packers game of the season, as one would expect. It’ll most likely require looking at round trip Denver flights through Hipmunk, which currently cost $192.20, unless driving 16 hours over 1,100 miles sounds better.
9/13/2015 | Chicago Bears vs. Green Bay Packers | Soldier Field | Average Price: $531.40 | Get-in Price: $238
Options through the air and on the ground are in play for this NFC North division rivalry. Packers fans can travel around four hours on the road over a little more than 200 miles, or look into flights to Chicago through Hipmunk. A round trip flight costs around $195 and will take just about an hour. It’s probably worth it for the NFL’s oldest and most storied rivalry.
10/4/2015 | San Francisco 49ers vs. Green Bay Packers | Levi’s Stadium | Average Price: $361.77 | Get-in Price: $137
One of the two longest trips of the season (the other is at Oakland) is when the Packers travel to the recently-opened Levi’s Stadium to take on the 49ers. The six-and-a-half-hour flight cost around $300 for a round trip, with the upside of being in California for a Packers game. This will also serve as a rematch from when the two clubs met in the Wild Card Round a couple of seasons ago.
