How to Save Money on NFL Tickets

May 01, 2023 by Madison Marx

The 2023 NFL schedule release is quickly approaching, and when it drops, it will be the perfect time to get your tickets for the upcoming season. 

NFL tickets to this year's marquee matchups will be highly coveted, but there are still plenty of ways to cheer on your favorite team affordably. 

Vivid Seats has a full breakdown below of how to find great deals on NFL tickets, so you can experience it live. 

Catch a Preseason Game

With presason games, there is an opportunity to save big. NFL preseason games feature real game-like atmosphere but are almost always cheaper than regular season games. Plus, preseason NFL games are a great family-friendly activity, where young fans (and lifelong ones too) can get a first-hand look at their team's rising stars. 

Buy Now for Later 

Since Christmas falls on a Monday in 2023, it's possible that the NFL will have at least one game on Christmas Day. While December may seem far away, it's not too early to purchase NFL Christmas tickets as gifts for the holidays. In addition to getting a jump on your holiday shopping, you can make four interest-free payments on your NFL Christmas tickets using Klarna.  

Look Beyond Marquee Games 

Marquee games, like the Super Bowl LVII rematch between the Chiefs and Eagles, will be some of the most in-demand NFL games this season. Prime time games tend to also be popular tickets each year. If you're looking to save money on NFL tickets, games on Sunday are typically cheaper than Thursday or Monday night games when demand for tickets is the highest. 

Scope Out Different Sections

Whether you like to sit in the end zone or on the 50-yard line, there are plenty of seats that can provide the best bang for your buck. According to Vivid Seats data, these sections in the following stadiums tend to be the most affordable, but still provide an enjoyable game experience:

Team  Venue Cheapest Sections
Baltimore Ravens M&T Bank Stadium 512, 510, 513
Buffalo Bills Highmark Stadium 339, 328, 308
Carolina Panthers Bank of America Stadium 553, 521, 508
