Ticket Prices for WNBA Game Reach Record Highs

This weekend’s highly anticipated basketball rematch between two rivals is generating significant buzz. The ticket prices for the game are the highest ever recorded for a WNBA game. The average ticket price is approximately $253, a staggering 187% higher than the usual average purchase price for the teams involved. The cheapest seat available is around $250, while the most expensive ticket is being sold for over $9,000. This game will be the third time the opponents have faced each other this season, and their previous matchups have attracted national attention and broken TV ratings records. Last Sunday’s game between the teams was the most-watched WNBA game on any network in 23 years, attracting an average of 2.25 million viewers. The Fever emerged victorious with a score of 91-83, and they currently hold a 2-0 advantage against their rivals this season. The excitement surrounding this upcoming game is so high that ticket prices are 116% more expensive than the average price for Chicago Bulls home games. The popularity of players like Caitlin Clark has contributed to record-breaking viewership numbers in women’s basketball, with the WNBA experiencing its highest-attended opening month in 26 years. Young fans and people of color, especially Hispanic and Black audiences, have shown a significant increase in interest in the WNBA.
