Ticket prices for Game 7 of Finals are reaching Super Bowl levels
The NBA Finals have provided high drama. And if you want to watch Game 7 at Oracle Arena — and have the chance to see the Golden State Warriors cement their place in history, or LeBron James bring that long-awaited title back to Cleveland — then you'd better be prepared to pay high prices.
Like Super Bowl high.
Tickets for Sunday's Game 7 were averaging $2,153 on SeatGeek and $1,943 on TiqIQ, FOXBusiness.com reported Friday, a record high for Finals tickets. Tickets on StubHub ranged from $830 for standing room only to a pair of $49,500 courtside seats, which a spokesperson told ESPN were the most expensive non-suite tickets the site has ever sold.
By comparison, SeatGeek's Chris Leyden told FOXBusiness.com that the cheapest Super Bowl ticket price they've recorded was $2,479 for the 2013 game between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers.
Meanwhile, tickets to the Cavs' watch party at Quicken Loans Arena, which went on sale Friday morning for $5 each, quickly skyrocketed on the resale market into the hundreds of dollars.
