Overwatch League ticket prices have more than doubled after selling out in two weeks.
Ticket reseller Vivid Seats analyzed its ticket price data and found that listed prices for the Overwatch League grand finals on July 28 at the Barclays Center are going for more than traditional sports and concert events at the same venue, including Bruno Mars and Cardi B, Drake, Florence and the Machine, and the WWE Summer Slam. Only Phil Collins tickets are going for more, according to Vivid Seats’ data, which was grabbed on July 11.
One-day tickets for the Overwatch League finals have a minimum list price of $152, with two-day tickets listed at a minimum of $185. Two-day tickets originally sold for $60.
It’s worth noting that some of these events, aside from a few, are a ways away, and the events may not be sold out. Similarly, the Overwatch League grand finals are a one-off event, and many of the events compared by Vivid Seats are part of larger tours, meaning more dates. There’s only one Overwatch League finals for the inaugural season; once it’s over, it won’t come back until the next year. This factor creates more value in a single weekend, which should be considered when comparing the data.
The Overwatch League championship is scheduled for July 27 and 28 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. No teams have been confirmed for the event just yet, but teams are fighting for the two slots in this week’s playoffs matches.
