Fans who don’t have tickets yet for the NFC championship game at the Georgia Dome on Sunday may have to pay a steep price on the secondary market.

As of Monday afternoon the average ticket price of $777 for Falcons vs. Packers was the second-highest in the history of the Georgia Dome, according to secondary market aggregator TicketIQ. Only the 2013 NCAA Final Four's average secondary market price of $887 was higher.

However, according to Jesse Lawrence of TicketIQ, there were still about 10,000 tickets left on the secondary market for Sunday’s game “so prices should come down.” The “get-in” price for the game on the secondary market was $307 on Monday afternoon.

Sunday afternoon there were single seats available for the NFC championship game at the Ticketmaster web site. However, by the time the Packers beat the Cowboys on Sunday to assure the Falcons would play host to Green Bay in the championship, Ticketmaster showed no seats available.

According to TicketIQ, the average price of $777 on the secondary market for Sunday’s NFC championship game is more than double the cost for the 2012 NFC title game at the Georgia Dome between the Falcons and 49ers. Lawrence said the average secondary market price was $462 for the 2012 championship game.

Sunday’s game will be the last for the Falcons at the Georgia Dome. They will begin play next season at the under-construction Mercedes-Benz Stadium in downtown Atlanta next to the Georgia Dome.
