Professional videogame players are coming to Brooklyn and tickets ain’t cheap. Consider it another data point in the monied rise of American esports.

According to data compiled by online ticket marketplace Vivid Seats, only a Phil Collins show at the Barclays Center will cost you more. At $152, the “get-in” price of the Overwatch league championship later this month is $8 more than the Bruno Mars and Cardi B show planned for October.

Here’s how the esports competition stacks up against other upcoming events at Barclays.
