Crazy Freddy: Subway prices are insane!

5/27/2013

If you’ve always wanted to go to the Subway Series but haven’t been able to afford tickets, we’ve got good news for you: Tickets are pretty cheap this year.

In fact, according to one site that tracks ticket prices on the secondary market, tickets are the cheapest they’ve been in the last four years.

This year’s combined average price on the secondary market -- for games at Citi Field and Yankee Stadium -- is $113. That’s according to TiqIQ, a website that tracks ticket prices on the secondary market.

The average price of $113 is down 13% from 2012, 19% from 2011, and 34% from 2010.

Wow.

Part of the reason for the decrease this season is that teams have adjusted their own ticket prices to more closely mirror the secondary market.

The cheapest secondary-market ticket for the Subway Series is $30 (including fees) for both games at Yankee Stadium.

The cheapest ticket directly from a team is $22 (before fees) for both games at Yankee Stadium.

This year’s most expensive Subway Series game is Game 1 at Citi Field (an average of $184). That’s significantly cheaper than the most expensive ticket over the last four years (when TiqIQ started tracking ticket prices), which was July 2, 2011 at Citi Field at an average cost of $255.
