ATLANTA (Gray News) – Ticket prices for this year’s Super Bowl are shaping up to be a pretty good deal. At least in the world of pricey championship games.
At this point last year, tickets for the matchup between New England and the Philadelphia Eagles were going for an average of $5,390.
Ticket prices had been slumping over the last week, but rebounded a bit on Sunday, jumping about $200 a ticket on average.
For this year’s contest, there are plenty of “cheap seats” to be had. A quick look at Ticketmaster shows resale tickets going for as little as $3,150, plus fees.
But, if nosebleed seats aren’t your thing and you have a big group to entertain, you might want to pick up a skybox.
The asking price on Vivid Seats for an 18-person full suite was going for $374,589 the morning after Championship Sunday.
You can buy a lot of beer and chips with that kind of money - or even a nice house.
Enthusiasm for the game is clearly with the Patriots fans after initially being evenly split between the two fan bases.
The folks at Vivid Seats are tracking who’s buying the tickets for the Super Bowl, and the secondary-market seller projects the crowd will be split 61/39 in favor of the Pats.
