No matter where you look, people are talking about what Super Bowl 2019 Tickets cost; however, everyone references different prices. Our goal is to provide you with clear answers as to what Super Bowl ticket prices are, regardless if you are looking for the face value, resale value or the cost of travel packages.
Face Value SuperBowl Ticket Prices
When it comes to Super Bowl ticket prices, there’s two categories to pay attention to:
- The face value of Super Bowl tickets (which has a price range of $950 to $5,000)
- The market value or the cost to buy resale super bowl tickets ($3,300 to $10,000+)
The above graphic displays ticket prices from NFL On Location, which offers fans ticket packages that include things such as pre-game parties and lodging, for those who don’t wish to buy everything from Super Bowl tickets to hotel rooms to transportation a la carte.
Getting Face Value super bowl Tickets
Unless you’re one of the extremely lucky season ticket holders who wins rights to tickets through a lottery, or know an NFL player or senior management employee, the chances of you getting face value tickets are extremely slim. However, the NFL does have a lottery system that you can enter.
With regard to the face value of Super Bowl tickets, we’re now seeing drastic increases in prices, which comes at no surprise. Just five years ago, the face value of the cheapest Super Bowl tickets were selling for $325 and the most expensive tickets were going for $1,250. Now, the cheapest tickets are $950 and we are seeing tickets with a face value as high as $5,000.
The NFL is also selling ticket packages in what they call NFL On Location (as seen in the graphic above). However, even though these tickets are being bought more or less directly from the NFL, the prices of these Super Bowl packages range from $3,488 to $13,900, which is significantly more expensive than what you’d pay if you were to create your own Super Bowl package through resale tickets.
Resale prices for Super Bowl 53 Tickets
When one is trying to understand what it really costs to buy Super Bowl tickets, it’s not an easy task. This is because there are over 20+ ticket marketplaces from which you can buy Super Bowl tickets, and each marketplace is advertising and providing data to media with their cheapest Super Bowl ticket prices as well as what their average Super Bowl ticket prices are.
In short, securing your Super Bowl tickets through TickPick is the way to save money because of our no fee pricing structure that makes a much bigger difference on the total price of tickets as prices for the most expensive event of the year push fees higher on all other sites besides ours. TickPick has had an extreme increase in sales for major events like the Super Bowl in recent years because fans out there tend to do plenty of research whenever they’re looking to commit thousands of dollars per ticket.
When a fan is looking to purchase a ticket that’s listed on both StubHub and TickPick, for example, the price will ultimately be higher (usually by hundreds or even thousands of dollars) once the fees are applied on other sites like who tack on the fees at the end. For example, as of 1/3/19, premium lower level seats in the Lower Corner Section 134, Row 37 for the Super Bowl are listed StubHub at $6,222 without the fees. When a user clicks through to checkout, however, prices skyrocket to over $7,715 per ticket.
If a user wished to purchase tickets in a similar quality seat in our cheapest Lower Level Corner zone listing, a user could purchase a pair of tickets for just $5,149 per ticket. That user would save a cool $5,138.06 by purchasing a zoned listing on TickPick for a pair of Super Bowl tickets over the same quality of ticket from a site that adds fees like StubHub.
Understanding Changing Ticket Prices
Super Bowl ticket prices on the open market (also known as the secondary ticket industry) are set by the sellers. This means prices can fluctuate daily and even hourly. Although not perfect economics, ticket prices change based on supply and demand. It’s reasonable to assume that as the event draws closer, the amount of available ticket inventory decreases as fans who don’t wish to wait around to buy are pulling the trigger.
While this inventory decreases as the days before the game go by, the prices on average tend to decline, as evidenced by our historical pricing data which stems back to 2010.
Now, compare the above graphic with pricing info up through last year’s Super Bowl with that of the 20 days leading up to Super Bowl day from 2010 to 2015. You’ll see that while prices in general have absolutely increased throughout the years, waiting to purchase tickets until closer to gametime has generally been considered the best move.
You can see waiting till the week of the Super Bowl is typically best. We have an entire article dedicated to figuring out when the best time to buy Super Bowl tickets is (there’s a science to it) but there’s definitely no guarantees.
As you can see when it comes to the understanding the prices of Super Bowl tickets you need to trust your sources, and understand the data behind the numbers. For further transparency, we believe these price charts further help fans understand the cost of Super Bowl tickets.
