OnDemand WTP Pricing Research

Here’s how much Raptors Game 5 tickets cost — and what you could spend it on instead | Global News

Ticketmaster sold out for the entire series almost immediately last month, leaving fans with no choice but to peruse the secondary ticket market through sites like StubHub and SeatGeek. Those sites operate based on demand, and demand has never been higher.

The average price for a Game 5 ticket on the secondary market is US $6,000, making it the most expensive NBA Finals game on record, according to the price-aggregator site Ticketiq. The site says the average ticket price for Game 5 has shot up 41 per cent since the start of the series.

That works out to almost CAD $8,000, or enough to pay tuition for a year of post-secondary education, according to Statistics Canada. It’s also enough to pay rent for an average one-bedroom apartment in the city for six months.

If you are planning to shell out for a chance to witness a championship, remember this: StubHub might look cheaper than SeatGeek, but that’s only because it doesn’t show ticket fees by default when you’re browsing the site. Their prices are roughly the same, based on Global News’ analysis.
