Padres News: Padres Ticket Prices Booming In Secondary Market


With season ticket sales increasing during the past holidays and pre-sale tickets already gone on sale, the secondary market for San Diego Padres tickets have sky rocketed!

Last season the Padres finished 20th in attendance averaging over 21,700 at each home game with the ballpark usually half empty unless the Giants, Dodgers or Cardinals were in town.

Tickets according to the secondary market that will be the priciest include opening day vs. the San Francisco Giants at an average of $166.65, with the cheapest prices at $38 for that game, 62.3% above the season average. Other pricey games include the St. Louis Cardinals and usually the Dodgers attract a lot of demand.

The cheapest teams that will be great for value games are the Pirates, Nationals and Astros averaging $44 on the secondary market and starting at $11.

These price increases could mean more people have bought season tickets earlier than usual and should make it harder for out-of-market fans to buy cheap tickets like the old days. Hopefully this means were seeing more Padres fans this season on a usual basis!
