NFL ticket sales soaring more than 234% more than any other year-to-date amid COVID-19 pandemic

In the first 12 hours of the NFL releasing their schedule for the upcoming season, ticket demands are skyrocketing. 

According to SeatGeek, certain ticket sales for NFL teams like the Las Vegas Raiders are seeing their homes games in the highest demand among fans, more than any other home game this upcoming season. Followed by season-opener game at the Los Angeles Rams against the Dallas Cowboys. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are also among the teams experiencing an increase in their home games, after adding one-key player Tom Brady as their quarterback. 

The ticket sales company is surprised by the high traffic demand of ticket sales at this time, despite the future of live-sporting events continues to linger in the balance amid COVID-19. As of recently, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has said the league is prepared to make adjustments as needed, should the upcoming season be affected by the pandemic.
