The Super Bowl is the biggest American sporting event of the year, so it’s no surprise that tickets to the big game will put you back a pretty penny. With Super Bowl LVII featuring two of the league’s best teams facing off at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, how much cheddar will a ticket to the marquee NFL event of the year cost you?
How Much Are Super Bowl LVII Tickets?
As of the writing of this article, Ticketmaster, which is the Official Ticket Marketplace of the NFL, lists the cheapest Super Bowl ticket at $5,795.00 — that price jumps to $7,127.85 with fees included. Just north of a cool $7k would put you up in Section 436, Row 19.
Looking to get closer to the action? You better break out the hammer and crack open that piggy bank. The most expensive standard-seating Super Bowl tickets (those not in club levels nor combined with other perks packages) on Ticketmaster are at the 50-yard line, in Section 108, Row 2. They cost $43,050.00 with fees included.
Seats in the club level range from just under $10k to over $30k, depending on their placement in the stadium.
According to a recent NBC report, the average ticket price is about $6,076.
Other sites that list re-sale tickets, such as Vivid Seats, StubHub, and SeatGeek, have some tickets available at lower prices.
Packages that can be combined with ticket purchases include On The Fifty, Club 57, Champions Club, and Touchdown club, which, depending on the package, provide a variety of perks that include premium food and drinks, pregame events with live musical performances, post-game field access, and more.
Why Are Super Bowl Tickets so Expensive?
Answer: supply and demand.
It turns out your high school econ teacher was right. That class did, in fact, apply to real life. The limited number of tickets available for the most widely viewed American television broadcast, combined with the substantial demand, drives up the price for tickets.
Put simply, if people are willing to pay a premium cost for a premium product of limited supply, the price will be pushed upward.
Of course, tickets to the Super Bowl afford the buyer a once-in-a-lifetime experience that can’t be replicated, but the dramatic prices, which have increased substantially over time, make attending the game live inconceivable for many football fans.
Thankfully, watching at home with family and friends can be a wonderful way of enjoying the big game. Over the next two weeks, we’ll be releasing a series of articles at PFN to help make your Super Bowl viewing experience the very best it can be.
