According to Seatgeek’s Chris Leyden, St. Louis Battlehawks ticket prices are exceeding the previous average of the St. Louis Rams. On KMOX Newsradio 1120, Leyden said the average ticket is currently reselling for around $100, which is easily the highest mark in the XFL. The Rams averaged $65 per resale ticket in St. Louis.
This report comes 9 days after a previous report from KMOX that 28,000 are expected to attend the Battlehawks home opener. Additionally, Darren Rovell reported earlier this month that the Battlehawks were leading in merchandise sales.
One thing is clear, there is still a large demand for football in St. Louis after the Rams relocated to Los Angeles in 2016. Professional football will return to the city Sunday as the 1-1 Battlehawks will take on the 1-1 New York Guardians.
