Allen Park — The Lions still have tickets available for all eight of their home games this season, including the home opener Sunday night against the Denver Broncos.
Despite the lack of any official sellouts, the Lions’ ticket sales are currently in line with 2014. The NFL suspended its blackout policy for 2015, but even if it was still in effect, the Lions already have sold a high enough percentage of tickets to have avoided any of the non-televised games they had in the past.
To this point, the most popular games besides the opener are the Lions’ Thanksgiving game against the Philadelphia Eagles and the Thursday night game the following week against the Green Bay Packers on Dec. 3.
In addition to the limited tickets that were available for Sunday’s game against the Broncos, the Lions also have more tickets now after Denver returned some of its allotment.
The Lions implemented variable ticket pricing this season. The Broncos, Eagles, Packers are among the “touchdown” games along with the Oct. 18 game against the Chicago Bears. However, the Bears game hasn’t met expectations while the “field goal” game against the Minnesota Vikings on Oct. 25 has sold well.
One potential reason the Lions have not sold out games is the use of Flash Seats, which make it more difficult for ticket brokers to buy and sell them.
