Reality Check: Super Bowl ticket prices

By  | 

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — There are tickets left for Super Bowl LII at US Bank Stadium — if you’re willing to pay for them.

Just hours before the game, ticket prices remain high, but what are you willing to pay for the experience, and how does it compare with other dream tickets?

The cheapest “get-in” ticket price for the Super Bowl was more than $3,100 on Thursday. Lower-level tickets were going for $7,500. One ticket in a suite costs a cool $10,000.

Demand is said to be so high, Minnesota Super Bowl ticket prices could set a record.

So how much is the Super Bowl experience worth to you? How much would you pay to get in? Compared with other “bucket list” tickets, it’s a bargain.

On Broadway, good tickets to see Hamilton on Super Bowl weekend are hovering around $1,383. Bruce Springsteen is playing sold-out shows. A good seat will cost $3,995. About 20 million fans tried to get Led Zeppelin reunion tickets in 2009. A happy few paid $14,700 each — the most expensive rock and roll ticket in history.

The 2015 World Series had $17,600 tickets. If you wanted to see the Mayweather-Pacquio fight in Las Vegas, prices were absurd — $40,700.

Eagles fans appear to be driving up Super Bowl ticket prices. Online ticket sites report Philly fans make up the largest percentage of sales, outpacing New England fans.

Ticket prices for Minnesota’s Super Bowl are up 63 percent over last year.
