Panthers tickets are going for how much??

Posted: Updated:
CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

If you're thinking of trying to scrounge up a couple of tickets to next Monday night's Panthers game, you might want to play the lottery first.

We checked StubHub.com and found the most expensive tickets will cost you $2,000.00 for a pair of club seats. According to the site, these listings aren't breaking any North Carolina state laws.

The website says "North Carolina allows resale of tickets without regard to face value, except for student tickets for sporting events. Venues may opt-out of allowing resale above face value for certain events - if in doubt, check the venue's website."

Even with the Panthers red-hot winning streak -- five in a row -- long time Panthers fan Allen Little said he wouldn't dare dish out that much dough.

"That's crazy," he said. "I would never have guessed 2,000 dollars. I probably won't make that game Monday night -- but I'll be watching."

Watching along with so many others as all eyes will be on the Cardiac Cats, as they're often called, for Monday night football.

They will have home field advantage next week when they take on the New England Patriots.

Betsy Torres, another avid fan, thanks the Cats' chances are pretty good.  

"We have a great defense," she pointed out. "Cam Newton is pushing it. You know I think we can do it!"

Yet she admits the excitement over Monday's big game also has her a bit nervous.

"Because it's the Patriots, you know -- they're pretty big," said Torres.

But the Panthers aren't exactly the under dog, these days. They did beat defending NFC champs, the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

It's why Torres wasn't surprised to see just how much tickets are going for.

"It's a big deal," she said. "Panthers are getting really popular. They're all over ESPN so, I understand it."

The cheap seats aren't exactly, well cheap either. Just under a 100 dollars for a pair in the nose-bleed section.
