Ticket prices for Tom Brady’s return to New England to face the Patriots are absurd

Strength of schedule for all 32 NFL teams: Which teams have the hardest, easiest schedule for 2021?

How much would you pay to see a GOAT?

Tom Brady is set to make his return to Foxborough, Mass., this fall, with the Buccaneers traveling to Gillette Stadium to take on Bill Belichick and the Patriots in Week 4 of the 2021 season.

Of course, Brady is returning to New England for the first time since joining the Buccaneers and winning Super Bowl 55 — his seventh, and first outside of New England — so of course fans will be lining up to see him. But it won’t be cheap.

Unearthed by Bleacher Report’s Master Tesfatsion, tickets for the Pats-Bucs matchup are going to be exorbitantly expensive, with the higher-end seats nearing $9,000 a pop.

A cheaper ticket will cost fans $1,400, or the price of a MacBook:

For comparison, tickets for the Week 7 Jets vs. Patriots matchup are much more in line with a typical Pats home game: $300 for a cheaper ticket, up to around $1,200 for the more expensive seats.

Brady and Belichick facing off for the first time in their NFL careers is going to lead to so many interesting storylines: Will Mac Jones get the start by that point? Will the Patriots put up a fight?

Perhaps, though, the most interesting question: Why would Patriots fans want to pay that much over value to see Brady’s return? Well, people pay for boxing pay-per-views for one of two reasons: To witness greatness, or to see fighters get knocked out.

Probably a mix of both here.
