Super Bowl tickets aren’t cheap. Football fans across America shell out thousands of dollars to attend the biggest game of the year.
Super Bowl LIII will take place on February 3 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia, one of the swankiest arenas in the entire NFL, reported Business Insider’s Cork Gaines and Meredith Cash.
Fans at the stadium – home to the Atlanta Falcons – enjoy a retractable roof, beautiful lounges, a bar the length of a football field, and stunning views of the city’s skyline during games.
One month from Super Bowl 2019, tickets were listed for an average of $US8,000, according to TicketIQ data provided to Business Insider.
In the chart below, you can see how that price compares to previous Super Bowl games. In 2017, when the Patriots played the Falcons in Houston, the average ticket price one month out was over $US10,000 – the highest average price in the last five years.
“Get-in” prices represent the cheapest available Super Bowl tickets offered for a game. The chart below compares get-in Super Bowl ticket prices for the last five years. The 2017 Super Bowl again commanded the highest prices.
“The Super Bowl secondary ticket market since 2017 has been managed more actively, which means less open market supply, less volatility and more predictable consumer pricing, which is what the league is looking for,” TicketIQ founder Jesse Lawrence told Business Insider.
“That new management has also greatly reduced practices like speculative selling,” he continued, “which led to the 2015 market squeeze that drive prices up 59% and left many fans without tickets.”
Get-in prices for the last two Super Bowls were at their peak about a month from game day, ultimately falling off by up to $US2,200 from there.
More people bought Super Bowl tickets a month out from game day this year than any other year since 2015. Check out the chart below for a comparison of how many tickets were sold leading up to the Super Bowl over the last five years.
