For those looking for the best seats in the house to Mayweather-McGregor, be prepared to shell out close to $100K for them.
Just in case you were in the market for tickets to see Mayweather-McGregor, you’d better be prepared to shell out a lot of cash. The contest, being dubbed by many as the “biggest fight in history,” will be under boxing rules and will feature a boxing-only undercard. The bout takes place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, a venue that can accommodate 18,000 boxing and MMA fans.
At a glance, the box office tickets start off as reasonably-priced as one would expect: $2537/ticket for the nosebleeds and the wallet assault continues the closer one’s seat is to the ring. The middle tier of seats starts at $5028 with parts of the next closest section coming in at $6502. From that same level of seating, there are four blocks that more than double to reach the $12,808 mark.
The lower level seating is where we see the really steep increase with ticket cost jumping to $22,288 and going sky-high from there. Prices range from $23,000 – $80,000 for the outer floor area, and the floor seats directly around the ring where the premium “best seats in the house” jump to a whopping $98,500/each. It’s still very early with plenty of time for resale outlets like StubHub to raise their blocks of tickets to insane levels. For comparison, Mayweather-Pacquiao floor seats were going for an astounding $351,005.25/each a week out from that fight, according to Yahoo.
So, if you plan on seeing the mega-bout that will undoubtedly set new pay-per-view records, you’d better get your finances in order because it certainly isn’t cheap, even at the bargain level. Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor takes place August 26, 2017 and will be broadcast via Showtime pay-per-view to those unable to attend the event.
