As the MLB's World Series moves onto a title-deciding Game Seven between the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians at Cleveland's Progressive Field later today, the ticket prices for the match have sky-rocketed.

With both sides looking to break severely long title droughts - the Indians have not won a World Series since 1948, while the Cubs are still searching for a title after a 108 year wait - tickets to witness such a historic match were always bound to be in high demand.

As a result, ticket distributors are taking advantage of the unique occasion, with tickets being sold for immense prices.

The cheapest tickets currently listed for sale on ticket exchange and resale website StubHub - sitting on the US$995 mark (NZ$1364.33) - are more expensive than the priciest tickets for both the 2014 FIFA World Cup (US$990) and 2015 Rugby World Cup (US$880) finals.

The most expensive tickets available for the final match of the 2016 World Series are the Diamond Box tickets. If you can manage to fork out a whopping US$75,000 (NZ$102,876.43) per ticket for the seats, you would be situated in the front row at ground level and directly behind the Indians' dugout.

The final game of the season begins at 1pm (NZT).
