The Kansas City Chiefs were in dire straits a year ago, but falling so flat in 2012 ended up helping them immensely. Now they have an elite right tackle, a new head coach, and a quarterback who is actually competent in Alex Smith.
TiqIQ.com is prepping for the 2013 NFL season by breaking down the top-priced and best value home games, and with the Chiefs’ average home game at a sizzling $129, they remain one of the best values available for the new season.
The best part about KC’s awesome ticket value is that they are expected to be leaps and bounds better than last year, and at the very worst should be much more competitive. Whether or not they can compete for a playoff spot remains to be determined, but Chiefs fans should certainly find some stellar value at home games in 2013.
With that, TiqIQ analyzes Kansas City Chiefs tickets, some of their top home games, and some of their least expensive home games for the upcoming season:
Top 3 Most Expensive Home Games
- (9/15) vs. Dallas Cowboys | Avg: $183 | Get-in: $54
It’s early in the season still when Tony Romo and company stroll into town, which gives KC a good test and KC fans a good game. If the Chiefs can get past the Cowboys, it’ll be an early sign that Andy Reid and his Chiefs are a competitive breed worth seeing in person, regardless of the price.
- (12/1) vs. Denver Broncos | Avg: $138 | Get-in: $26
The division rivalry lives on. This matchup wasn’t really desired last season, but with the positive changes, KC fans may have reason to believe the Chiefs have a fighting chance against The Sheriff when the Broncos come to town. Even if the Chiefs fail to steal the win here, it should be a hyped game worth attending for the price.
- (9/29) vs. New York Giants | Avg: $128 | Get-in: $27
Eli Manning ranks just below his brother here in terms of star power, but he’s actually cheaper, which works in KC fans’ favor. The New York Giants are a yearly Super Bowl threat, so Chiefs fans know they’re getting a stellar opponent. It’s one to use as a measuring stick early in September, and is also excellent value for a Chiefs home game.
3 Least Expensive 2013 Home Games
- (10/27) vs. Cleveland Browns | Avg: $103 | Get-in: $10
Cleveland looks to be a worthy opponent with some nice changes and an improving roster, but they also remain a matchup that the Chiefs should welcome on the home field. This one should be pretty competitive, but it’s a really well-priced game and could have the Chiefs exiting with a win.
- (11/24) vs. San Diego Chargers | Avg: $113 | Get-in: $16
Pretty much every team in the AFC West got better this off-season (save for the Oakland Raiders), so anytime a division rival enters Kansas City, you know a dog fight could be looming. Philip Rivers and co. could present a problem, but this is simply a flat-out good rivalry game to a part of. With a get-in price like $16, this one should be a sellout.
- (10/20) vs. Houston Texans | Avg: $114 | Get-in: $18
Another potential sellout here, as the mighty Texans group together with Arian Foster and J.J. Watt to dismantle the Chiefs. This will be one heck of a test, but even a potential whooping will be worth the price of admission – just $18 to get in and $114 on average.
