A Ticket Preview for the Jets’ September Home Games

The Jets will begin their regular season this Sunday at MetLife Stadium against the Buccaneers of Tampa Bay.  Rex Ryan’s team could certainly use a few more weeks of preseason to get healthy at some key positions, but they don’t have that luxury and need to prepare for the Bucs.  Darrelle Revis will make his first start as a member of Tampa Bay and Ryan will need to concoct a game plan that will put his quarterback, whoever that may be, in a position to win.

New York is just a few years removed from multiple AFC Conference Championship runs, but you wouldn’t know if from the ticket landscape.  They’ve pumped a significant amount of money into marketing this offseason to try and sell tickets, but they’ve failed to sell out all their games.  That’s dampened the secondary market and made several home games this season quite affordable.  Below is a breakdown of the home games on the Jets schedule in September: opening week against the Buccaneers and then two weeks later against division rival Buffalo Bills.

Sunday, September 8th vs. Tampa Bay – Average ticket price = $172.97, Get-in price = $54

There are only two Jets home games with a get-in price above $55 this season (home games in Week 6 and 7 against Pittsburgh and New England, respectively) yet there are four games with an average ticket price above $173.  You can sit in the lower level for only $84 so it appears it’s the better seating options that are experiencing some ticket price drops and driving the average price down.  If you’re looking to head out to East Rutherford for Week 1, the lower level seating is the best value.

Sunday, September 22nd vs. Buffalo – Average ticket price = $165.05, Get-in price = $34

Only the final regular season home game against Cleveland has a lower average ticket price than $165; however, the get-in of $34 is higher than four other home games.  Buffalo is experiencing just as many quarterback health/performance issues as the Jets, so this game could come down to which defense can deliver the most turnovers.  If you’re into watching the big uglies in the trenches determine the outcome, this is the game for you.
