Fans attending Super Bowl 50 paid a lot of money to watch America’s favorite annual sporting event. For frugal football fans, just how much would an individual need to spend to get through the gates of Levi’s Stadium?
The interactive seating map above shows the lowest average price of each section for this year’s Super Bowl between the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos. Ryan Sleeper, Director of Data Visualization at Evolytics, designed the above map to allow fans to have an image of the cost of attending Super Bowl 50. For more of his work, see his sports data visualization portfolio.
The data shows that the “get in” price for Super Bowl 50 was a little over $3,000. The lowest price of a ticket was $3,148 for a seat in the corner of the upper deck.
For fans wanting lower level seats, endzone seats dropped as low as $3,641. Fans looking to watch the game in style could find suite tickets for $7,721. The above map is interactive and you can use your mouse to hover over particular sections to get an idea of the range of ticket prices over the past two weeks.
This was just the price for tickets. Fans traveling from out of town would likely pay additional costs for airline tickets, gas, rental car and a hotel room among other things.
Once fans arrived in the stadium they were welcomed with steep concession prices. According to Fox Sports, the price of a draft beer was $13 while a bottle of water was $7. Food prices were also higher than the regular season.
A bucket of popcorn was $15 while a hot dog was $8. If you are looking to go to Super Bowl 51 in Houston, you might want to start saving now.
