It is not cheap to attend an NFL football game, and unfortunately for fans, it has become steadily more expensive and shows no signs of slowing down.
According to a report by The Action Network, Steelers tickets have increased by 93% over the last 15 years, the sixth-highest jump in the league.
With the average cost of a ticket at Heinz Field $59.19 in 2006, it was all the way up to $114.24 last season.
The Steelers did announce back in April that they would not be increasing ticket prices from last year to the 2021 season. The organization is also providing more flexibility as well, allowing season ticket holders to pay in installments for the first time ever.
Still, Pittsburgh’s price increase over the last 15 years pales in comparison to the Las Vegas Raiders’.
The Silver & Black saw ticket prices jump 147% over that same span, the most sizable hike in the league.
The Raiders’ price increase is significant, but likely skewed by the organization’s move form Oakland to the brand new Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas in 2020, even with it being just a single year.
Chargers, Jets and Raiders fans can all count their blessings, as they have seen the smallest jumps in ticket prices since 2006. All have seen an increase of 30% or less.
