Efforts to boycott the NFL until multi-millionaire athletes resume standing for the national anthem are apparently working, as a bombshell report on Friday revealed what’s happening to NFL ticket sales.
Pretty soon, team owners and NFL execs will be forced into a “come to Jesus” meeting as the number of fans boycotting the league rapidly grows. See below how bad ticket sales are now…
Washington Examiner reports:
The National Football League is feeling the impact of the “Trump Effect.”
Ticket sales since he called on team owners to fire players who take a knee to protest the National Anthem have cratered.
The online ticket reseller TickPick told Secrets that sales have dropped 17.9 percent, far more than the usual Week Three fall.
17.9 percent decrease in NFL orders this week compared to the previous week.
Last year the drop was 10.8 percent in orders on Monday & Tuesday following Week Three games.
“We have seen a massive decrease in NFL ticket purchases this past week in comparison to years past. Week 3 seems to usually have less ticket orders than week 2, but this year ticket purchases are down more than 7 percent from this time last year,” said TickPick’s Jack Slingland.
“While we can’t specify if this decrease is due to the president’s comments, player and owner protests, play on the field, or simply the continued division of consumer’s media attention, the conversation around the NFL this week has focused on the president’s comments as well as the players’ and owners’ reaction. As viewers continue to abandon their NFL Sunday habits, both the number of ticket sales and the purchase price of tickets will drop,” he told us.
Also, here’s the official “I Proudly Stand For The Anthem” t-shirt (we have hoodie and v-neck options, too!) that has part of the proceeds going to the National Coalition of Homeless Veterans!
