Even the cheapest Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor resale tickets are outrageously expensive

Hardly surprising

Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor tickets

Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor tickets will set fans back a very pretty penny.

If Willy Wonka personally hands you a golden ticket that gains entrance to his chocolate factory, sell it on Ebay and buy Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor tickets instead.

Well, you might be able to afford one of the (roughly) 18,000 up for grabs for a seat in the T-Mobile Arena on August 26.

Please note, these are all resale prices. The actual ticket prices will be a lot cheaper, but considering how quickly the London press conference ones were snapped up, you’ll have to be quick off the draw to get those.

Starting off with the cheap seats, and we use the term ‘cheap’ very loosely, you can grab yourself a nosebleed from the low-low price of $2,425 (€2,139). The seats on this level (sections 100-200 in the figure below) go right up to $5,268 (€4,647).

An absolute bargain, we know.

If you want to sit on the lower level (the purple blocks in the figure below), those tickets range from $4,996 (€4,407) right up to $18,930 (€16,700). The slightly lighter orange seats go from $6,693 (€5,904) to $10,503 ($9,265) while the big ‘fuck off’ darker orange seats can be purchased from $12,808 (€1,1299) to $17,586 (€15,514).

Those were the cheap tickets. If you haven’t already passed out from shock and are curious to see how the other half lives, strap yourselves in.

See that little pale burgundy (mauve?!?!) section of seats labelled A-H around that grey speck marked ‘ring’? Yeah, they are as expensive as you would expect them to be. They start at $22,504 (€19,852) but go as high as $80,563 (€71,071).

It gets worse.

That slightly darker area closest to the ring is the premium “big swinging Mickey” section. If you want to sit there you will have to shell out a staggering $98,500 (€86,895).

Suddenly that $100 pay-per-view doesn’t seem like too much of a stretch anymore.
