Mark Davis thinks Las Vegas Raiders tickets should be more expensive

0

The team charges more for ducats than any other NFL team.

Sometimes saying less is a much better alternative than broadcasting your thoughts. Take National Football League Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis, who owns a majority stake in the team due to being the son of the late Al Davis. Mark Davis is of the opinion that Raiders tickets “are not expensive enough”, as according to Davis, Raiders home tickets are “the most expensive on the secondary NFL ticket market“. Davis said, “we are probably underpricing our tickets. Many fans mistakenly believe that the Raiders price the secondary market. It’s not true. It’s market driven. The Davis Raiders generated $119 million in ticket revenue in 2021, more than any other NFL team.

Davis’ business is in Las Vegas, not Oakland, because in 2016 his Raiders business received the largest stadium grant in American history, $750 million. This allowed the Davis Raiders to leave the Oakland Coliseum and move to Nevada in 2020. The deal appears to have been great for Davis but not so good for Las Vegas and Clark County, Nevada. The theory was that Clark County would raise money to pay off its football stadium debt by selling bonds that would be paid off by taxes levied on hotel rooms. In other words, out of townspeople but the COVID-19 pandemic started in March 2020 and hotel rooms were empty for a while. Clark County had to pay over $20 million in stadium debt from a county reserve fund. Davis’ Raiders business has the most expensive average ticket price of any NFL team at $153.47, according to Team Marketing Report. If there’s good news for Raiders ticket buyers, Davis isn’t using dynamic ticket pricing. It is the same price for each game.
