The 49ers will begin their final season at Candlestick Park this Sunday when they host the Green Bay in a rematch of last year’s divisional playoffs. Fans are eager to see if Colin Kaepernick and the Niners can repeat last season’s success and it’s certainly showing in the secondary ticket market. With an average ticket price of $296.04, 49ers vs. Packers tickets at Vividseats.com are the second most expensive home game this season, trailing only the Week 16 Monday Night matchup against the Falcons in what could be the last game ever played at Candlestick.
San Francisco has one other home game this month in Week 3 when Andrew Luck makes his first ever visit to San Francisco. He’ll face his college head coach at Stanford in Jim Harbaugh in what should be an intriguing battle of the minds. Kaepernick will also have an opportunity to demonstrate his athletic prowess against Luck only a week after facing on of Luck’s fellow 2012’s NFL draft mates in Russell Wilson (the 49ers also travel to Washington this season to face RGIII so Kaepernick will face all three of the sophomore signal callers.) Here’s a ticketing breakdown for both opening week against the Packers, as well as the Colts matchup two weeks later.
Sunday, September 8th vs. Green Bay – Get-in price = $82
Opening week is always expensive and this year is no exception. If the 49ers were staying put following this season and not moving into their new state-of-the-art facility, opening week would undoubtedly be the most expensive game of the year. The get-in price is at $82 currently, but the cheapest lower level listing is only $23 more at $105. If you have the extra cash, lower level is quite a bargain compared to the upper deck seating.
Sunday, September 22nd vs. Indianapolis – Get-in price = $74
Week 3’s home matchup against Indianapolis is in the middle of the pack this season in terms of level of expense for 49ers home games. Three San Francisco home games have a get-in above $74, including this week’s game. Once again, lower level seating isn’t considerably more expensive than listings in the upper level as the cheapest lower level listing is $108.
