The Chiefs' opponent will be determined by the outcome of the AFC Wild Card games played on Saturday, January 7 and Sunday, January 8.

Wait to see who the Chiefs play or buy now?

That is the question according to ticket seller Tickets for Less.

Tickets start at about $100 for the January 15 game at Arrowhead Stadium, but who the Chiefs end up playing could drive up the cost or potentially lower it.

“Steelers fans travel well,” said Jay Harig with Tickets for Less.

Harig explained the combination of Pittsburg becoming the away team coupled with good weather is the perfect storm for high ticket prices.

“Pittsburg fans travel here and now you have Kansas City and Pittsburg fans fighting for the same tickets,” said Harig.

But as we saw when the Tennessee Titans were last at Arrowhead, weather can play a big role in ticket price. Tickets were available for as little as $2 before kickoff.

“It might be worth the wait,” said Harig, referring to the chances of the Chiefs playing Houston or Oakland instead of the Steelers.

Harig said counterfeit tickets become a bigger problem during the playoffs and suggested purchasers buy from a reputable seller instead of taking chances with scalpers or Craigslist.
