Landing a ticket for the Feb. 1 Super Bowl might take a budgeting miracle on par with the Seahawks’ 28-22 win over Green Bay in Sunday’s NFC Championship.
The average resale price for a ticket to the Super Bowl in Glendale, Arizona, is $3,477, according to research done by SeatGeek, an online ticket broker. It’s a shade higher than last year’s Super Bowl, $3,468, according to the site.
The median price is $2,780 and the cheapest available ticket was $1,950, down 7 percent.
“In general, we’re expecting this year’s game to be a slightly cheaper ticket, especially now that the Seahawks are back in it,” Connor Gregoire of SeatGeek said via email. “Last year’s attendees will be more likely than others to pass on another multi-thousand-dollar ticket purchase, and given that the Super Bowl is no longer a novelty for Hawks fans in general, demand should be a bit softer from the Seattle side.”
