Weather hot; Packers ticket sales not
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Ticket brokers report demand is down for tickets to the Green Bay Packers’ home opener against New Orleans next Thursday.
When the lockout ended, the NFL season opener was a hot ticket on the Packers’ home schedule. Prices were starting at nearly $300 for some brokers.
But demand has slipped in recent weeks. The Green Bay Press-Gazette (http://bit.ly/plF1qn) reports brokers still have hundreds of tickets, some selling for as little as $130.
Brokers blame the Thursday night time slot.
John Schmidt, owner of Schmitty’s Tickets near Appleton, says kids are in school and people work on Friday. Schmidt says he still had about 400 tickets.
While Titletown Tickets owner Bill Wenzel says his starting price has dipped in the past two weeks, he says tickets are still selling well.
