As kickoff for Super Bowl 50 creeps ever closer, the prices for tickets to watch the Denver Broncos take on the Carolina Panthers on February 7 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa, Clara, Calif., remain very expensive for the average NFL fan.
While the average ticket price was about $4,000 and $5,000 last week, likely due to secondary market re-sellers setting prices high to see what they can get, fans can find seats for fairly significantly cheaper.
A look at secondary ticket market site SeatGeek.com shows seats available for as low as about $3,000 in the upper level of Levi’s Stadium, while the VIP sections near midfield are well into five figures for a ticket.
The cost of attending the Super Bowl is still about 60 percent higher than the average price of attending a regular season game. Over the last five years the average cost per ticket has nearly doubled from more than $3,600 in 2011 to at one point more than $6,000 for 2016’s game.
Those hoping to score tickets at the last moment can also search StubHub and the NFL’s Ticket Exchange site, and both could provide solid deals, but chances are fans will have to shell out big bucks in order to attend.
The big game between the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers is scheduled to begin at roughly 6:30 p.m. ET on Sunday.
