Plus, the Panthers’ win against the Arizona Cardinals puts them solidly in the playoff hunt, which has fans willing to pay triple - even more - for tickets.

WBTV checked out prices on StubHub, indicating that fans can expect to pay bigger bucks for the game against the Washington Football team Sunday.

Earlier this season, tickets were as low as $25, but the cheapest WBTV was able to find now is $113 for upper level.

Then there are the lower-level seats. Those that normally go for around $200 to $300 a seat are now going for between $500 and $1,000.

Season ticket holder Kurt Hahne said his upper-level section tickets have risen three times in value.

“By Friday afternoon after the news, they went up to about $150. And then this morning (Monday) I checked it after yesterday’s (Sunday) win, and they’re at $335 apiece,” Hahne said.

There is good news for big fans; Hahne is selling those.

Fans can still grab a ticket but look out for these serious price increases.
