With less than a week to go until the NFC and AFC championship games, ticket sales for the two on the TicketNetwork.com exchange are at the lowest levels they've been in the past four years*. As you can see on the graph below, the sales trend has been downward for the past few years, but this year is particularly bad for the two. Whereas normally the NFC game sells moderately well, it has been performing worse year after year, and in 2015 it is only selling about as well as the AFC game. The AFC game was improving in sales for a few years until now. All in all, sales for both games are down 55% from the same period of time last year and down 68% from 2012.
It's another light week for on sales, but there are a few things going on.
