Super Bowl Ticket

(2/2/2016) – Sorry to tell you, but when trying to buy Super Bowl tickets, the consumer is at a disadvantage. It’s like a hobbyist trying to play chess with a professional player. Ticket sellers sell tickets for their day job, so if there’s anything they have, it’s patience. So as fans clench their mouses and phones anxious for prices to go down, sellers are patient as they deliberate whether prices will increase or not.

Although we’ve seen a huge drop in ticket prices in our 4 star seats (which are lower sidelines and corner sections), we haven’t seen much else change in the last several days. Yes, there are tons of tickets left, however, tickets continue to sell at these high prices. Actually we’ve seen the most amount of sales in the last 24 hours.

SB Prices

Based on conversations that we’ve had with sellers, some anticipate an increase in ticket prices today and tomorrow and then a drop in prices late Thursday, or maybe Friday.

As usual it’s extremely challenging to say to buy now or later, but when we look at these lower corner and lower sideline listings we still think these are the best deals (~$3,800 to $5,400). When considering paying $3,200 for Upper Endzone seats, it’s hard to believe that seats that are easily twice as good are selling for only a 25% premium. So even if prices fall, these 4 star seats have the least amount to fall.

With that said, the market is speaking and Upper Endzone seats continue to sell in the $3,000 to $3,300 range.

Last piece of advice: if you are not buying tickets today, then you should be comfortable waiting until at least Thursday, otherwise you run the risk of paying more than what you could today.

Thanks for considering TickPick as your provider for Super Bowl tickets!

All the best,
Brett Goldberg and the TickPick Team

(1/27/2016) - We've got great news for you Super Bowl fans: we've been calling sellers to try and negotiate better prices on your behalf. We are pleased to report that we were successful!

One of our largest sellers has been allocated tickets from an NFL team in sections 110-112 or 118-120. The exact seat locations will be given next week, but in the meantime, we convinced this seller to list these tickets on just TickPick as "Lower Premium Sideline" tickets. Here's the best part, we convinced the seller to list these tickets for an all-in price of $6,000 each.

You'll often hear us say that we cannot be sure if Super Bowl ticket prices will go up or down. However, we are sure that this is the best deal you will find today.

Here's some additional info to keep in mind.

Although we are hopeful that the cheapest ticket will come down in price, it's important to realize that Levi Stadium has a very small amount of upper level seats. There's about 60% less seats in the upper bowl of Levi Stadium, compared to the average NFL stadium. This of course will keep upward pressure on the cheapest tickets, as we've been seeing.

There are a few important dates in the coming 11 days that will impact ticket prices, which includes the distribution of Super Bowl tickets to season ticket holders (typically done via a lottery). The Panthers will be distributing tickets by Friday, while the Broncos started today. This should increase supply. Additionally, next week between Monday and Thursday team players and staff will start to receive their tickets, which will trickle onto the resale market.

Prices are definitely high now (at least historically), and here are a few reasons why:

1. Super Bowl prices hit record highs last year, and sellers realize that can happen again.

2. International demand has been very strong and continues to remain strong.

3. San Francisco is highly desirable destination (estimated one million visitors for the Super Bowl).

4. And here's the big question, will the wealthy local market participate in attending the Big Game? This ultimately will dictate Super Bowl prices in the last week.


As always we are here to help. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you would like some one-on-one advice. We can be reached from 9AM-9PM, 7 days a week at 845-538-4567. Or if you would like, respond to this email with a date and time you'd like us to call you.

  (1/26/2015) — The data from every other Super Bowl in the last five years says ticket prices will go down as the day of the game gets closer. However, if this were last year's Super Bowl, you would have wanted to buy tickets today or even better, yesterday. This is not last year's Super Bowl. In fact, Super Bowl XLIX is unlike any other Super Bowl we have ever seen. In our last email, we said that ticket prices would go up over the weekend, and then come back down. And they did. We just had no idea how far up they would go: Super Bowl Ticket Prices 2015 As you can see, prices have gone down over the last day, but not nearly enough to counter the rise we saw over the weekend, and as you can see from this graph, most of the increase in ticket prices came from the cheapest tickets on the market: Super Bowl Ticket Prices by Seat Quality So, what's going to happen now? Predictive analytics, the science of looking at data from the past to predict what will happen in the future, only works if data in the present moment resembles data from some point in the past. As you can see from the graphs above, the present moment doesn't resemble any point in the past. Some in the industry say ticket prices will bounce back from today's drop and climb even higher. At TickPick, we think prices will fall a little as we get closer to the game, but we would be lying if we said we had a more compelling reason than that's what our gut instincts are telling us. As we said before the weekend, it's time to trust your gut. If you are at all interested in buying Super Bowl tickets, please feel free to give us a call. If you let us know what you're thinking and how you're feeling, we may be able to give you some one-on-one advice on how to move forward. Our number is 845-538-4567. We'll have someone available until9pm EST tonight, and back on at 9am EST tomorrow morning. Or, if you'd like, respond to this email with the date and time you'd like us to call you, and we'll drop you a line.
