ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WIVB) — Despite the small size of the Buffalo market — when compared to giants like New York, Boston and Denver — the Buffalo Bills command a relatively high ticket price.

The ticket price, according to Vivid Seats, is the 19th most expensive in the NFL, of the 32 teams that sell tickets. Buffalo benefits from a large international market in Toronto, bumping ticket prices to a median price of $140 per game.

Despite a fierce rivalry with the New England Patriots, the Bills’ most expensive game in 2015 will be when the New York Giants come to town on Oct. 4. According to Vivid Seats, the game will command an average price of $214 per seat.

The ticket marketplace company ranked NFL teams based on their ticket prices and popularity in a 2015 study, coming to the conclusion that the Seattle Seahawks command the most popular and most expensive tickets.

The Bills will kick off their season on Sept. 13 against the Colts. Check out some of the new rules for the Ralph Wilson Stadium here.
