Go west young man! Traveling to Denver game will cost you

OVERLAND PARK, KS (KCTV) -

In less than two weeks, the Kansas City Chiefs will travel to Denver to face the Broncos in a prime-time game.

And getting tickets to that coveted game will cost you as demand is "monstrous." Ticket prices are as much as the plane ticket.

Some flights are pricing it $275 round trip and hotel rooms near the stadium are going for $130 to $350 a night. But first, you have to get a ticket to the big Sunday night game.

"If you are a big Chiefs fan, that's a small price to pay to see us really make history," said Acendas Travel Agency's Cynthia Riggins.

Last year as the Chiefs racked up loss after loss and garnered the league's worst record at 2-14, ticket brokers took a bath. Tickets to Arrowhead Stadium could be bought for $10. Now it will cost you at least $80.

"Night and day. There is no comparison," said Brian Nelson with Tickets for Less in Overland Park. "We couldn't give away tickets. We were selling them for $10 apiece and still couldn't sell them. We ended up throwing a bunch away. But this year we can't get enough supply."

On Dec. 1, the Peyton Manning-led Broncos travel to Arrowhead. A nose-bleed ticket is at least $275 and a fabulous seat would set you back nearly $1,800.
