Two days ago an article here discussed the affordability of the Super Bowl and how, for everything from lodging to tickets, this New York City event was priced out of reach for most but the lucky few!
‘…The truth is, however, that for the run-of-the-mill football fan (or anyone else) all of this pre-game and game hoopla will be well out of reach due to the exorbitant prices being charged for everything from lodging to game tickets that need to be purchased on the secondary market through a broker. Here is some anecdotal evidence of this fact…’
Now, just two days later and based on the economic law of supply and demand that seems in this case to have been impacted by the weather, it appears that from at least the ticket price standpoint affordability has improved some!
‘Two hungry fan bases and the wealth of the New York metropolitan area had some guessing that Super Bowl XLVIII would turn out to be the most expensive ticket in Super Bowl history.
However, judging from the reaction of the resale ticket market in the past 24 hours, it could turn out to be one of the least expensive.
On Friday, nine days before the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks meet at MetLife Stadium, the cheapest ticket to buy for the Super Bowl was $1,779 on NFL Ticket Exchange, the league’s official resale site. That’s $409 cheaper than it was on the site with this many days left last year and $809 cheaper than the year before.
Since the conference championship games ended, ticket prices have steadily plummeted. The get-in price on the NFL Ticket Exchange was $2,700 on Monday.‘ (Source)
