According to a report from 24/7 Wall St., the New England Patriots have the most expensive seat in pro sports with an average ticket price of $241.86 at Gillette Stadium.

The Red Sox also have the highest average ticket price in baseball, with a cost of $88.26 per ticket.

To identify the five teams in each major sport with the highest ticket prices, 24/7 Wall St. examined a two-year average of secondary-market ticket prices for each team compiled by SeatGeek, a search engine for event tickets.

Three of Boston's four major pro teams, MLS soccer teams were not ranked in the report, ranked in the top-five among the most expensive seats to purchase on the secondary market, which according to SeatGeek, is more reflective of fan demand.
