Sunday’s Portland Timbers-Seattle Sounders game set the record for most-expensive resale tickets in any Major League Soccer match in the last five years.

According to StatGeek, tickets for the match cost $102 on average.

The Portland Business Journal reports that the game pitting Northwest rivals usually yields high returns for fans selling tickets on the secondary market.

The next two highest match resale prices were the June 24, 2012 Timbers/Sounders contest ($99) and the Aug. 24, 2014 game between, wait for it, the Timbers and the Sounders ($96).

Each of the matches took place in Portland. Indeed, of the top 10 prices for MLS resale tickets since the Timbers joined the league, all but two were in the Rose City.
