Jets-Dolphins tickets selling as low as $11: Report

Forget the mall and Black Friday for low prices. If you are really searching for a bargain, look no further than MetLife Stadium and Green Monday.

Thousands of seats are still available for Monday night's Jets-Dolphins match-up where prices have tumbled as low as $11 on the secondary market — in what will be the cheapest ticket in MetLife Stadium’s NFL history.

By Sunday night, seats could be had for as little as $11 on the open market for Gang Green’s game against the Miami Dolphins, reported the N.Y. Post.

The tickets had a face value of $66 a piece, not including licensing fees paid by season-ticket holders. The average secondary-market price was $65, says TiqIQ, which tracks prices of resold ducats.

The previous low was set by the Jets’ game against the Arizona Cardinals on Dec. 2, 2012, when the lowest average asking price was $113, TiqIQ data show.

Adding to the non-demand for Jets ticket sellers is the 8:30p.m. kickoff for “Monday Night Football.”

East Coast prime-time games regularly drive down prices because local fans don’t want to be out after midnight on a work or school night.

So much for the City That Never Sleeps reputation.

In reality, between 50,000 to 60,000 fans will be at MetLife on Monday night, estimated Chris Matcovich, TiqIQ’s vice president of data and communications.

“Essentially, the Jets’ fan base has thrown in the white towel,” Matcovich said.

A city-based Dolphin fan club bought 1,100 tickets for Monday’s game — 900 from the MetLife box office and 200 from secondary sellers.

So expect to see a sea of aqua.
