GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) - Fans still looking to snag a ticket for this weekend's home opener are in luck. Area ticket brokers say they have a surplus of unsold tickets.
"We've probably had between 70 and 100 calls today from sellers and not one buyer," John Schmidt said Tuesday.
Schmidt is the owner of Schmitty's Tickets. He says his ticket prices for Sunday's game against San Francisco are taking a dive.
"They were at $220 now they're down to $124," said Schmidt. "Both teams are really good, it's very unusual. There's just very little interest. We see that in the cold weather games because we get a lot of sellers of people who own tickets that don't want to go when it's cold."
It's the same story over at Ticket King.
"I'm surprised because in June the game was very hot," explained manager Josh Anderson. "And in the past two or three weeks, it's cooled down quite a bit."
Anderson says they still have hundreds if tickets available, starting around $135.
But are these lower prices low enough for fans?
"Certain prices I would pay," Ruby Salter said. "I don't think I'd pay over $150 to see them."
"I prefer to watch the games at home in front of my TV in the recliner," Jake Thiel said.
Schmidt remains hopeful the green and gold faithful will fill the stands.
"We're hoping it turns around," he added. "But if we lose money in this game, we'll make it up in a different one. We'll go with the flow. It's all you can do."
Both ticket brokers say prices will continue to drop the closer we get to the game. Also, they say the best selling games right now are for the Bears and Saints games.
