DENVER -- Whether it was the overtime magic in 2012 or AFC Championship Game heartbreak in 2006, Steelers fans are always trying to invade Mile High, especially during the postseason.
“Once I saw it was the Steelers, it was crazy,” local ticket broker Candy Lewis of A Lewis Tickets said.
Lewis said whenever the Broncos play the Steelers, there is a higher demand, and this year’s playoff matchup is no different.
“Pittsburgh definitely does draw a higher market than say if it was one of the other two teams (Kansas City and Houston),” Lewis said.
If Broncos fans want to keep the Terrible Towels to a minimum on Sunday at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, it’s on them.
“We love our season ticket holders,” Lewis said. “We have to protect them and their wishes and if they do not want opposing team fans sitting in those seats, then I’m not going to do it.”
Tickets are listed as high as $3,600 apiece on StubHub, and if you’re shopping around this year, it's as important as ever to trust your source.
“The Broncos have now gone mainly digital,” Lewis said. “All digital tickets.”
Lewis' advice is to buy from someone you know and trust. There won’t be as many paper tickets as you are used to seeing and the potential to fake digital tickets is much higher.
