Since 2017, Ali Beach and her husband have shared two Crew subscriptions with her parents.

Last weekend, when the Crew faced FC Cincinnati, Beach and her husband thought about buying two tickets to a game with two friends who don’t go to many games but wanted to participate in the “Hell Is Real” rivalry. “.

For tickets that weren’t at the very top of the stadium, Beach said the best price she could find was $100 per ticket, after fees. His friends weren’t interested.

For non-season ticket holders who wanted to make a purchase in June, the cheapest seat outside of the Nordecke fan section was $72. A week before the game, that same seat in the top corner of the stadium was $85, before fees.
