CLEVELAND — A late season check of online ticket broker Stubhub in 2017 showed a Cleveland Browns parking pass for outside the stadium going for $30, while the ticket to get into the game could be had for as low as $6.

What a difference a year makes. As late as Thursday the cheapest tickets for this Sunday's home season finale against the Cincinnati Bengals going for $120.

The play of the team and their late season shot at the playoffs, slim though they may be, have created a December interest in the team that hasn't been seen in the last several years.

Attendance for 2018 is averaging 65,527 a game, currently 19th in the league. Compare that to last year's 62,403 FirstEnergy Stadium (not including the London game) which would have been 28th in the league. The team is drawing in 2018 on average an extra 3,124 fans a game, that comes to an extra 24,992 tickets sold this year over last. With an average ticket price of say $65 that means an extra $1.6 million for the team and an extra $130,000 for the city which collects an eight percent admissions tax on each ticket sold.
