If You're Looking For Super Bowl Tickets, You Might Just Score A 'Deal'

In case you didnít hearóthis yearís Super Bowl is going to be played outdoors in the cold weather and the elements. If youíre prepared to sit in the stadium all bundled up thereís good news, as apparently resale ticket prices for the big game continue to drop. We donít know if itís the weather, the teams, or that fact that people donít to travel to New Jersey, but itís clear that things are getting somewhat more affordable.
As soon as the conference championship games were over and the matchup was set, some seating experts were reporting that average tickets were going for around $3,000. But just a week into the hype and festivities, average prices are roughly 40 percent lower, and it sounds like tickets to this yearís game could be the lowest on average since 2002.
Unfortunately this does not mean that things have become cheap by any standards, and youíre still looking at shelling out over $1,000 for just one ticket. When we checked the availability on StubHub this morning, we were seeing the cheapest options going for around $1,700, and over at the NFL and Ticketmasterís official ticket exchange, it was very similaróaround $1,600.
Weíre not experts on how ticket prices rise and fall, but if youíre thinking about attending it might just be a buyerís market. We doubt things will fall into the three-digit level anytime soon; however, with hotels still available in and around the area, this might be the year you finally get to go to the Super Bowl. Just be sure to bring plenty of warm clothes, as just under a week out itís looking like a low of 18 degrees on Sunday night.
