The Steelers vs. Raiders game in Las Vegas is currently the most in-demand seat in the NFL right now, according to new data released by StubHub on Friday. The game, which will act as the Raiders’ home opener and Steelers’ first road game of the season, is flying high on StubHub, just as other Raiders games are.

On the secondary ticket market, the Raiders appear as the hottest ticket in the NFL. Meanwhile, the Steelers remain one of the hottest tickets, punching in as the fourth hottest ticket in the NFL. Las Vegas’ ticket sales are up over 70 percent since 2021 and tripled since last year. The Steelers coming to town helps create a mix for the Raiders that should end up in a highly attended game.

Meanwhile, the Steelers’ home opener against the San Francisco 49ers remains a hot ticket as well, punching in at 5th overall on the hottest tickets for the season. With Kenny Pickett heading into his second season and a new hype around the new offense, it is little surprise to see Pittsburgh continue as one of the NFL’s hottest tickets.

In August, the Steelers set the Friday Night Lights attendance record with 13,957 spectators at Latrobe Memorial High School. Multiple times throughout training camp, the team welcomed more people than that, even as many as 15,000 people to Latrobe for training camp.

In 2022, they averaged 66,280 attendance for their home games, a sharp increase of over 6,000 people from 2021. Pittsburgh filled 96.9 percent of Acrisure Stadium last year during their home games, and with three west coast trips in 2023, the road games should also be a hotter ticket. Pittsburgh ranked 5th in away stadium attendance a year ago, with 99.9 percent of the seats filled during road trips. Since 2013, Pittsburgh has the 4th best home record in the NFL at 56-24-1, trailing the Green Bay Packers, New England Patriots, and Kansas City Chiefs.
