Does anyone know what the actual on sale date of tickets is? Everywhere on the Broncos website just says

"Tickets for individual games during the 2012 season at Sports Authority Field at Mile High will go on sale this summer. Please check back late spring for an exact date and time."

Well late spring has come and go and no date has been posted. Just curious if season ticket holders or those in and around the Denver area may have some insight. Looking to get tickets to the Saints game on October 28th.

Unless I missed it, the Broncos haven't announced when single game tickets will go on sale.

That's a little weird, because outside of the locked out offseason last year, I think they usually go on sale early to mid July.

If memory serves I think it was August. Although its been awhile since I tried for regular season single game tix.

Last year it was August, but that was because of the lockout. I think in '09 and '10 it was in the July 10 to 15 range.

Yeah looks like you're right. There's been at least a couple years it was early August, but usually the last half of July.

I was wondering about this as well.
I've been combing Craigslist and the Bronco ticket exchange, but prices seem quite high (home opener against the Steelers)
I realize it's about as premium as games get, but is $250-$300 reasonable per seat for uppper bowl?

No. When single game tickets go on sale, then second hand ticket prices will drop. Expect to pay up to $100 for upper deckers though for home opener vs. Steelers with the Manning debut.

Should be an announcement soon on when they go on sale.

I think there's a substantial part of the season ticket market who puts a fishing price tag out there for their tickets. They plan on going to the game, but if someone's willing to offer them an inordinate amount of money, they're willing to make other plans for the right price. :)

That's why prices tend to look stupid way early, and even later on you'll see stupid prices listed. But once people who need to sell start to feel the pressure to sell, prices come down.

Yikes, glad I didn't jump on any of them, thanks for the heads up.
What should one be paying roughly for lower bowl? (same game)

Or in other words, it's way too early to be buying tickets in back channels. Get them through ticketmaster if you can. But count on the fact that you'll be able to get them cheaper a couple weeks before the game than now.

I'm honestly not sure how you can even sell tickets at this point. I don't think we've gotten our paper tickets yet, and I don't think the ticketexchange will let them be listed this early.

Hard to say, if you're talking prime sideline seats, I wouldn't be surprised to pay $200-250. Whenever I've sat there though I was using friends of friends type tickets and paying face. This game is unusual though so it's hard to predict. I'm up high in the South Stands but I wouldn't be surprised to see those going for $130-$150 ($80 FV)

This game will have a playoff-like pricing structure. It's a perfect storm.

Home opener premium.
First Manning game premium.
Sunday Night Football premium.
Steeler fans willing to pay anything to get in premium.
Best non-division rivalry (I'd hear an argument for New England, but they're not coming to Mile High this year).

We paid $275 a ticket for row 11/50 yard line for the home opener last year against Oakland. It also had a bunch of premiums (MNF, Home Opener, Division Rivalry). Not sure how much the Manning premium will be :D

I hate this. I want to wait for half price tickets but if you strike out, a lot of decent seats are already gone.
