More NBA Finals ticket history

by Ryan Aber Published: June 11, 2012

BY RYAN ABER raber@opubco.com I wrote about ticket demand for the NBA Finals games here in Oklahoma City in today paper. You can read that story here. Since that story was posted, I’ve received some feedback from other people in the secondary ticket market business. TiqIQ, a secondary market ticket aggregator, says tickets in Oklahoma City are the second-highest for an NBA Finals city in the last three years, behind only Los Angeles in 2010. Tickets for finals games in Oklahoma City are averaging $1,300.42 each, compared to $838.41 for the games in Miami. Here’s the last three years for comparison: 2012 Overall average: $1,012.97 Oklahoma City: $1,300.42 Miami: $838.41 2011 Overall average: $759.39 Dallas: $979.66 Miami: $724.29 2010 Overall average: $1,305.60 Los Angeles Lakers: $1,788.60 Boston: $455.10 TicketNetwork.com provided some different stats, using tickets already sold (as opposed to tickets available). According to the site, the average price of tickets sold so far is $789. The highest ticket sold so far is $2,650 and the low is $305.
