The Best and Worst Days to Buy Bucs Playoff Tickets
It wasn’t pretty. They crawled across the finish line, but your Tampa Bay Buccaneers are making another run for the Super Bowl… even though they finished at just about .500 for the year. With the win against the Panthers on January 7, the Bucs finished 9-8 for the season. But that was enough to clinch the division as the Carolina Panthers finished 2-15 and the Atlanta Falcons finished with a 7-10 record. So on we go. Want to try to snag tickets for the game? We’re here to tell you the best and worst days to buy Bucs playoff tickets.
The NFL announced the Bucs would host the Monday Night Football game next week against the Philadelphia Eagles. Before you bust out the credit card and pick your seat at Raymond James Stadium, the math wizards at Financebuzz ran the numbers to see exactly when is the BEST and WORST day to buy tickets. They looked at ticket sales on sites like Stub Hub and found that you can actually save almost 1/4 on the cost of tickets… IF you buy them on the right day.
When is that day? They say the sweet spot, believe it or not, is game day itself. Maybe it’s because scalpers are in a panic that they’ll get stuck with no buyer. Maybe it’s because those who have to travel or make advance plans to buy tickets are now out of the market of buyers. But for whatever reason, they found the average ticket cost on game day to be $143.63 on game day… the biggest price drop of the week. Not a lot of people take advantage of the last-minute price drop. Finance Buzz explains that only 4% of tickets are sold on game day.
So that’s the smart day to buy Bucs playoff tickets- when will you pay the most? Between today (January 10, 2024) and 4 days before the game, they think tickets will be the priciest. They think 4 days before game day will be the peak of ticket prices for Monday’s game. So plan accordingly if you want to see what could be one of the best upsets in Bucs history.
