24/7 Wall Street: The Most Expensive Tickets in Sports

15 of 22

2. New York Knicks

Avg. Ticket Price: $161.93
W-L Past 10 Years: 40.6% (6th lowest)
Championships Past 10 Years: None
Avg. Home Attendance: 19,763

Madison Square Garden bills itself as the “world’s most famous arena” and the prices for Knicks games reflect that status. Attending one costs secondary buyers just short of $162 on average. The Knicks’ success, however, is difficult to attribute to success on the court. While New York has made the playoffs the past two years, they have not won a championship since the 1970s. Still, fans continue to pack the Garden — the team’s attendance has increased by 4% in the past 10 years. Part of this popularity has to do with the team’s increased star power, with recent additions of Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire. This year’s team was one of the more exciting ones Madison Square Gardens has seen for a while, due in part due to the unexpected success of Jeremy Lin and “Lin-sanity.” The Knicks are also one of those teams that always will have strong backing, even during their worst performances.
