It's been quite some time since the New York Giants finished a season with a losing record, but that's exactly what happened when they finished with a 7-9 record in 2013. As a result, the Giants opted not to raise their season tickets prices — something that seems only fair given the product they put on the field a season ago. However, that still doesn't mean attending a game will be cheap.
With the 2014 NFL regular season recently having been released, 24/7 Wallstreet took a look at most expensive tickets league-wide and, based on base ticket prices at TiqIQ, the New York Giants landed firmly in the Top 5 with an average price of $366.34.
4) New York Giants | Season Avg. $366.34
The New York Giants had their worst season since 2004 last season, finishing with a 7-9 record. Still, the team has always been a big draw in the countries number one media market, and is still reaping the benefits of the creation of MetLife Stadium. Giants tickets are 28 percent higher than the league average. The most expensive game on the New York Giants schedule is against their division rival the Washington Redskins on December 14, a team coming off an equally disappointing season. The average price is $439 with a get-in price of $126.
The only teams with more expensive average ticket prices are the New England Patriots ($414.22), Seattle Seahawks ($452.34) and San Francisco 49ers ($485.85). Of course, all three of those teams made the playoffs a season ago, with the Seahawks eventually hoisting the Lombardi Trophy.
By comparison, the Dallas Cowboys have the 7th most expensive average ticket prices ($322.28), while the Washington Redskins come in at No. 8 ($304.19). The Philadelphia Eagles and New York Jets don't even crack the Top 10.
