Hundreds of tickets to tonight’s 49ers game are cheaper than a tour of Levi’s Stadium

Levi's Stadium 49ers Eagles 2014

It’s been said that the 49ers are more interested in the business of their new(ish) stadium than winning football games. So maybe this shouldn’t come as a surprise: Fans aren’t willing to pay as much to watch tonight’s game against the Cardinals as the 49ers charge to take a public tour of Levi’s Stadium.

Above is a screenshot from SeatGeek of one of several ticket offers for tonight’s game that are quite affordable.

Below is a screenshot of what you’ll see if you try to buy adult tickets to take a tour of Levi’s tomorrow morning.

In case that’s too difficult to read, here’s a closer view:

levis-stadium-tour-price-two-tickets

You might be thinking, “Sure, but the game tickets are in the 400 level and a tour comes with access to the entire stadium. Plus, you don’t have to watch Blaine Gabbert vs. Drew Stanton.”

You make some good points. But there are currently 50+ offers on Stubhub for tickets that are below $30 each (before fees), including these two seats in Section 203.

Meanwhile, tickets to Sunday’s game at the Coliseum between the Raiders and Chargers start at $117 each on Stubhub before fees.

There are also over 100 offers on “Ticket Exchange,” Ticketmaster’s reseller portal that’s affiliated by the NFL, for under $30 each to see tonight’s game at Levi’s, including 10 offers for tickets at $20 apiece.

This isn’t too far from the truth.

This is great news for non-STHs, though. If you’re willing to fight traffic to make it to Santa Clara for a 5:25 kickoff (or, better yet, take public transportation and avoid the exorbitant parking fees) to watch a game between two 1-3 teams — a game where the 49ers will be without their most popular player, NaVorro Bowman — you can do it for the price of three beers at Levi’s Stadium. So much for the team’s new palace pricing out the “regular fans.”

However, those who put down thousands of dollars for “Stadium Builder’s Licenses” and continue to pay far more than resale value for 10 home game tickets per year, probably don’t consider this to be such a good thing. But hey, at least they get free access to the 49ers Museum, 15% off at Bourbon Steak and Bourbon Pub (on non-event days), and a Faithful Scarf.

jpracing11 Thursday at 5:25 pm? Probably faster to walk to Levi’s, regardless of where you live or work.

BASportsGuy For a moment, I considered buying a sub-$30 tix on StubHub. But then I realized I’d have more fun watching tonight’s ALDS on TV

BASportsGuy I didn’t even bother selling mine. Would’ve been about a $15 sale after fees. The Pats and cowboys paid for half my season tho.

So the question is, which is the bigger rip off? I mean, this sounds like a question for a deep thinker. It’s one of the great mysteries of the universe really.

BASportsGuy timkawakami it’s not rocket science to know if your team is losing, ticket prices are down.

BASportsGuy you’re comparing a personal tour vs a mass event. Of course it is. Simple rule of business

JhnLrnt It’s pretty amazing to me that a stadium tour is pricier than a ticket to an NFL game in a new(ish) stadium.

JhnLrnt Your photo says “at Cleveland,” the MetLife tour is $13 less per person, so let’s just agree to disagree here.

Season ticket holder since 1970 and I want out of my SBL but it is now worthless do to a worthless product on the field.   And remember SBL holders, our ticket price were held for three years where old Jed boy can commit commercial suicide if he raises seat prices for next year.   The entire experience is not fun anymore.   Parking in dusty Blue lot 1, traffic, no comradery in the stadium as there are new people sitting next to you every game…………………for three years now and mostly for the other team.  The article did not mention… Read more »

Those empty seats and the resale  value of these seats is a testament to an incompetent owner.
A man who has no business running an  NFL franchise.

Agree with about a few different things. We left candlestick and the mud parking lots to move to the suburbs with a dusty lot? Makes no sense at all. The lack of comradery in the parking lots and seats is appalling. Every game i’m surrounded by smug, shit talking fans from the other team. The cardinals, I mean the damn cards were well represented in my section, besides Fitz, I’d guarantee those “fans” couldn’t name whom the best player in Cardinal history is. Unreal

One of the most valuable franchises in sports has ticket values plummeting.
If winning isn’t necessary to increase value, Jed and Trent must be thrilled.
