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:

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.
