The 2024 NFL schedule was just released a few weeks ago, but Pittsburgh Steelers fans are already snapping up tickets at a far greater rate than they did in 2023.

According to data from online ticket reselling marketplace TickPick, the Steelers have seen the seventh-largest change in average purchase price compared to 2023. Last season, Steelers fans paid an average of $275 per purchase at TickPick. This season, that number has ballooned to $363, a 32% increase.

The Houston Texans have seen the largest change, since NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year C.J. Stroud drastically changed that team’s fortunes last season, taking the Texans from the No. 2 overall pick to the playoffs. Houston has seen a 99% increase in year-over-year average purchase price.

The Detroit Lions (68%), Indianapolis Colts (42%), Atlanta Falcons (35%) and Baltimore Ravens (33%) have also seen large increases, while the New England Patriots have had a 45% decrease.

The Steelers are involved in several of the highest-priced games on the 2024 schedule. Pittsburgh’s visit to Las Vegas on Oct. 13 against the Raiders currently has a get-in price of a whopping $453.

The most expensive home game on the Steelers’ schedule is the Oct. 6 Sunday Night Football date with the Dallas Cowboys, which currently has a $317 get-in price.

Other high-priced contests on the Steelers 2024 schedule include the season opener at the Atlanta Falcons on Sept. 8 ($225), Russell Wilson’s Week 2 return to face the Denver Broncos ($340), and a date with cross-state rivals the Philadelphia Eagles on Dec. 15 ($340).

Steelers fans have become somewhat notorious for taking over road venues, as Black and Gold faithful caused spikes in attendance during their visits to Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Houston last season, in addition to regularly filling Acrisure Stadium.
