You’ll have to pay an awful lot to get into CenturyLink Saturday

Lots of interesting stuff provided by SeatGeek.com on the re-sale ticket market for Saturday’s game:

— At an average resale price of $416 per ticket, Saturday’s NFC Divisional Game in Seattle is the Seahawks’ most in-demand home game since at least 2009 when we began monitoring the secondary ticket market as well as the most in-demand Divisional game we’ve ever seen, topping the 49ers-Saints game in San Francisco two years ago (average resale price of $387 per ticket).

— Ticket prices are 35% higher than for the regular season matchup between the Seahawks and Saints back on Dec. 2, which drew an average resale price of $308 per ticket.

— Demand is more than triple what it was (average resale price of $131 per ticket) when these teams met in the playoffs back on Jan. 8, 2011 in the NFC Wild Card Game.

— Right now, the least expensive tickets available for Saturday’s game are listed at $203 per ticket in the corner of the upper deck at CenturyLink Field — nearly three times the lowest face value offered at the Seahawks box office ($73). Lower-level tickets start at $316 each behind the end zone, and we’ve already seen some fans pay more than $2,000 per ticket for club seats at the 50-yard line.

— It may come as no surprise, but Seahawks fans are drowning out demand from Saints fans for tickets to Saturday’s game. Only 4% of traffic to our event page for the game came from Louisiana yesterday, while more than 40% came from Washington and Oregon.

— Seahawks-Saints is the hottest ticket of the weekend ahead of Broncos-Chargers (average resale price of $355 per ticket, seats starting at $160 each), Panthers-49ers (average resale price of $276 per ticket, seats starting at $165 each) and Patriots-Colts (average resale price of $195 per ticket, seats starting at $114 each).

— If the Seahawks defeat the Saints on Saturday, tickets will be even more expensive for an NFC Championship Game in Seattle. The least expensive tickets for a potential title game at CenturyLink Field are listed at $477 each right now, and the average resale price is a whopping $810 per ticket.
