GREEN BAY – Now that the opponent is known for Saturday's NFC divisional round playoff game at Lambeau Field, ticket prices are finding their level, which is the highest they've been this season.
The Green Bay Packers will host the San Francisco 49ers at 7:15 p.m. Saturday. The average lowest get-in price is $258, a strong $80 increase over $170 last week. Prices are determined by averaging the lowest prices at 10 secondary market websites.
Face value of tickets for the divisional round game is between $127 and $177. For the championship game, it's $215-$280.
Secondary marketplace TickPick reported that it sold more tickets for this game than for any previous Packers playoff game, with about 15% of sales coming from California zip codes. TickPick said 45% of purchases had Wisconsin zip codes. It said the average price of all tickets was $351.
The underdog 49ers knocked off Dallas 23-17 in a whacky affair at the Cowboys' AT&T Stadium, and, in fact, won seven of 10 road games this year, but none of them in the kind of weather they'll face this weekend.
The Packers defeated the 49ers 30-28 in California in September.
Depending on who you believe, it will be cold on Saturday night, or really cold. The National Weather Service in Green Bay predicts a high of 24 and a low of 8. The Weather Channel forecasts a high of 22 and a low of 2 with 5-10 mph winds. Weather Underground says it will be 17 at kickoff with a wind chill of 5, falling to 14 degrees and 1 degree, respectively, by 9 p.m.
Not the coldest game in Green Bay by a wide margin, but enough to make 49ers fans, and maybe their football team, uncomfortable.
If the Packers win, they will host the NFC Championship game the next week at Lambeau Field, facing either the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or Los Angeles Rams. The average of lowest prices is $403, a bit less than $415 the week before, but mostly place-holding until this weekend's winners are known.
