If fans can take away one positive from the 49ers rebuild, it's the team's falling ticket demand on the secondary market.
The 49ers' third year at Levi's Stadium will usher in yet another drop in resale ticket price, which is likely being impacted by last-place projections in the NFC West. On TicketIQ, an online aggregator that analyzes both primary and secondary market ticket price trends, the average resale price for 49ers tickets at Levi's Stadium in 2016 is $223.31, down 5 percent from last season's average of $234.06. Even more significant is that drop from 2014, however, when tickets averaged $379.22 in Levi's Stadium's inaugural year. That marks a 41 percent dive on average since.
So when will fans save the most at 49ers games this season? The 49ers' cheapest home game comes against the Cardinals on October 6. That game currently owns a $161.64 average, 28 percent below season average, and the get-in price is $48. Other home games falling well below season average include October 23 against the Buccaneers ($171.24 avg./$56 get-in) and December 11 against the Jets ($170.36 avg./$50 get-in).
On the primary market, tickets are still available for all remaining games. Games against the Cardinals, Buccaneers and Saints will be the cheapest 49ers tickets on Ticketmaster, with the get-in price starting from $65 at each of those three games. Conversely, an October 2 battle with the Cowboys will be the most expensive, with tickets listed from $190 on the primary market.
