December Sports Tickets 

December begins with premier events including the MLS Cup. As we noted in our MLS Cup preview, fans should not expect this rematch between the Los Angeles Galaxy and Houston Dynamo to be a replica of last year’s game. MLS Cup tickets were averaging $186 earlier today, the lowest price point since we began tracking prices two weeks ago. 

American football fans will also see a lot of action at the beginning of the month with College Football Conference Championships, the beginning of College Football Bowl Games, and the latter half of the NFL season. Plus, the regular College Football season comes to a close with the Navy-Army rivalry game that started 122 years ago.

Are you a rodeo fan? Grab your boots and your National Finals Rodeo tickets, saddle up, and head to the Thomas & Mack Center to see who will take home a coveted golden buckle! World Champions will be determined and Las Vegas will go Country for 10 days. For more on ticket prices and other top events happening in Vegas during NFR, check out our National Finals Rodeo preview.

Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez will meet in the ring for the fourth time. Despite Pacquiao winning the last two matchups, it should be a battle if history repeats itself. The fight will likely be their last due to Marquez’s ripe old age of 39. Pacquiao vs. Marquez tickets are down 10% since last week. 

NBA fans are never disappointed on Christmas Day. With big matchups between the Heat and Thunder, the Celtics and Nets, and the Lakers and Knicks – this year will be no different. College Basketball fans will continue to see some top non-Conference matchups this month including Ohio State vs. Kansas and Arizona vs. Florida. Read our College Basketball preview for more on the 2012 – 2013 season.
