Now that every team has played two games at home, XFL teams are rolling out a new option for fans to get them into the stadium before the season ends.
The ‘Go For 3’ ticket package is offering a seat to fans for each of their team’s final three home games for one low price of $60 ($20 per game).
The package continues to prove that the XFL is seeking to provide an experience for all fans that won’t cost an arm and a leg. The move also could have to do with attendance numbers that are trending down since the beginning of the season.

However, only six of the eight teams in the league are offering the ‘Go For 3’ package for $60. Houston, Dallas, Seattle, LA, DC and Tampa have the package on their website for the program. The other two teams do offer a ‘Go For 3’ package, but it is for a higher price.
The New York Guardians currently have the package posted for $75. They play their games at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ (the home of the NFL’s Giants and Jets). However, the Guardians rank second-lowest in average attendance through two home games. New York started the year with 17,634 for their week one game against the Tampa Bay Vipers, but their second home game which came in week four saw only 12,116 (a 31.2% drop off).
Let it be known that the Seattle Dragons are offering the ticket package for just $60 despite having the second highest average attendance of over 25,000.
St. Louis has been the only XFL franchise that hasn’t struggled or seen a big drop off in attendance from their first home game to their second. The BattleHawks are averaging 28,541 through their first two games and are one of the teams in the XFL trending up.
The BattleHawks are offering the package for $90, the highest price of any team, but with the least amount of need to sell more tickets. When it’s broken down, $30 per game is an incredible package for football fans in St. Louis where early year tickets were selling for near triple that on after market websites.
We will certainly see if this new ticket package helps the XFL stave off the naysayers who pick apart the negative trends in attendance. Stay tuned to XFL News Hub for the latest in league wide news.
