With the promotional tour for the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor super fight kicking off next week fans are scrambling to locate ticket information and, as expected, there are no cheap tickets in the house.
Unless you’re in the top 1% of the world-wide economic bracket.
BloodyElbow.com reports that tickets for the August 26 showdown are already peaking on the resale market.
At a glance, these resale tickets start off as reasonably-priced as one would expect: $2537/ticket for the nosebleeds and the wallet assault continues the closer one’s seat is to the ring. The middle tier of seats starts at $5028 with parts of the next closest section coming in at $6502. From that same level of seating, there are four blocks that more than double to reach the $12,808 mark.
The lower level seating is where we see the really steep increase with ticket cost jumping to $22,288 and going sky-high from there. Prices range from $23,000 – $80,000 for the outer floor area, and the floor seats directly around the ring where the premium “best seats in the house” jump to a whopping $98,500/each. It’s still very early with plenty of time for resale outlets like StubHub to raise their blocks of tickets to insane levels.
If you aren’t part of that top 1% and want to be at the T-Mobile Arena, it may be a good time to make a call to the bank for a refi.
