    The Cost of SB Tickets

    Well...Just heard that the average price per ticket is up to $4,300.00. Some are going as high as $19,000.00 per ticket.

    Of course these originally were in the $700.00-$900.00 range.

    It boggles the mind and reminds me of the old P.T. Barnum quote "There's a Sucker Born Every Minute".

    How much would you be willing to pay for a seat? Would it matter more if your team was playing? What about if the game was closer to your area or even in your own fan stadium?

    Cheers!

    $200 for a nose bleed and $500 for a lower level, if the vikings are playing.
    This will be my first year buying season tickets so hopefully the vikings go, if I win the opportunity to buy tickets I will sell the tickets and go on vacation(possibly to the area of the superbowl) and watch the game on tv. Would be a easy way to make a couple thousand dollars.

    Re: The Cost of SB Tickets

    If you are referring to this report from ESPN then the price reported is a little misleading.

    The article was very unclear, but the $4300 average price is for a pair of tickets, or $2150 a piece.
    I know because i have been watching the ticket brokers very closely to see what I am missing out on by not selling my tickets.
    Still a pretty high markup over the $700 or $900 single ticket price though.

    If the Vikings were in it, I could see myself paying $5k for a pair of seats...

    That isn't even face value of the tickets.
    Face value of the tickets, form the NFL, is $700 or $900.

    The report I heard (Could have been wrong?) Said individual tickets were now going for $4300.00 Nodak (On Average). That seemed high to me as well from the ESPN report you supplied the link on (Thanks BTW)

    They also reported a few sales (More than one) were made for $19,000,00 ea.

    This was on our local news out here in CA.

    Cheers!

    Yeah, I heard a similar report on KFAN this morning, so I went to look it up.
    There aren't any single tickets being sold, and if you look at stub hub the prices reported are all in pairs.

    A lot of the ~$20k sales I would have to think are package deals, including hotel and stuff.
    There are a lot of those going around too.

    I just reread this part and caught that!
    Awesome!
    You'll have to let us know where you seats are when you find out!

    Well....In either case the most I would pay (EVER) and this only if the Vikings were playing would be $1000.00. Honestly...I would feel cheated paying that, but it would do it.

    Congrats again on your Tickets Nodak....Good Luck with that!

    You pay it, I will never be attending a superbowl unless I become super rich or get a job selling hotdogs.
