Los Angeles Chargers games won’t be cheap in 2017. In fact, Chargers ticket prices, on average, will dwarf 2016’s most expensive team.
The Bears had the NFL's highest average ticket price in 2016 at $132 a game, according to one study. The Chargers will top that by $60.

This makes sense from only one perspective. Los Angeles will be playing its home games in by far the league’s smallest venue. Naturally, tickets have to be more expensive than league average.
But $60 more than the most expensive team?
This is a team that’s never won a Super Bowl, only played in one and hasn’t so much as made the playoffs in three straight seasons. Over the last two years, the Chargers gone 9-23.
Financially speaking, fans may understand why ticket prices have to be so high. But they are going to want bang for their buck. So, while they may understand it, the fans may also politely decline.
