Giants vs Cowboys Ticket Price Trends

The New York Giants opened the NFL season with the 11th most expensive home ticket in the league, only to see the average asking price drop to No. 14. The Giants, who lost to Jacksonville in the home opener, now have two Texas road games — Sunday at Dallas and September 23 at Houston — before returning home for a September 30 matchup with the New Orleans Saints.

Maybe absence will make the heart grow fonder? Giants tickets have an average asking price of $227 on the secondary market, making them the cheapest seats at MetLife Stadium since 2011, when secondary ticket marketplace TicketIQ.com began tracking data in 2011. The priciest season was 2013, two seasons removed from New York’s last Super Bowl victory, when the price was $346. This season’s average asking price also represents a 12 percent drop over last season.
Why? New York went 3-13 last season and veteran quarterback Eli Manning was benched while management tried to figure out if he was still “the man.” Turns out they think he still might be, or at the very least, that Manning, a two-time Super Bowl MVP with the Giants, is good enough to direct the team while it grooms his replacement. Either way, the low price for tickets is an opportunity for fans.
The Giants have limited season tickets and single-game game tickets still available. The Saints game is sold out on the Giants ticket partner, Ticketmaster, though primary market tickets for other games remain.

The priciest game of the season is the season finale, set for December 30 against Dallas. Secondary market prices for that game are trending at $327. Last weekend’s home opener was the second most expensive with a $291 average, followed by a current $252 average asking price on October 11 when the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles come to town.
The cheapest chance to see the Giants will be December 16 against the Tennessee Titans.
