Not many teams get the label of being a Super Bowl favorite before the season begins, but that is where the Green Bay Packers stand with perhaps the best quarterback in the entire NFL at their disposal.
With last year’s demoralizing and heartbreaking end to the season put behind them, the Packers start their journey for a Super Bowl with a target on their back. With an improved running attack behind Eddie Lacy, Green Bay will have one of the most balanced, potent offenses in the league. Before the regular season kicks off, things are ironed it in the preseason. Below—with secondary market information provided by RazorGator.com—are prices for Green Bay Packers tickets before the season officially gets underway.
8/13/2015 | New England Patriots vs. Green Bay Packers | Gillette Stadium | Average Price: $122.93| Get-in Price: $34
Even in the preseason, a matchup with the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots is sure to catch the attention of the entire football universe, as this will undoubtedly be the highest profile matchup of the pre-season’s opening week. With the Patriots having 24/7 news coverage thanks to a seemingly poorly-handled investigation from the NFL regarding Deflate-gate, there will be plenty of eyeballs on everything they do this season. For both storied franchises, it begins right here in the middle of August.
8/23/2015 | Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Green Bay Packers | Heinz Field | Average Price: $125.92 | Get-in Price: $28
Tickets to see the Steelers at Heinz Field, or anywhere else in the country, are usually some of the highest-priced tickets on the secondary market. There’s no difference in this example, as the Packers’ road game against the Steelers is the most expensive preseason tickets for Green Bay. Additionally, this is also a Super Bowl rematch from a handful of years ago.
8/29/2015 | Green Bay Packers vs. Philadelphia Eagles | Lambeau Field | Average Price: $103.92 | Get-in Price: $54
The Eagles are certainly one of the league’s most interesting teams, as a complete overhaul of their roster has garnered some questions about Chip Kelly and the front office. The Packers defense will go through a difficult test against Philadelphia, as Kelly is one of the more creative offensive minds in the NFL today.
9/3/2015 | Green Bay Packers vs. New Orleans Saints | Lambeau Field | Average Price: $54.45 | Get-in Price: $15
Lastly, the fringe roster spots will be fought for in the Packers’ final pre-season game against the New Orleans Saints. Don’t expect to see an epic quarterback matchup between Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers in this one, but there’s still value in attending a game at Lambeau Field with a get-in price of only $15.
