Super Bowl Tickets Down 24.65% Since Last Week

The Seattle Seahawks have landed in New Jersey and have officially started Super Bowl Week. As the game draws closer, it is becoming increasingly less expensive to join the team at MetLife Stadium on February 2. Last week, the upcoming Super Bowl was on pace to be one of the most expensive over the past few seasons, but could now become the least expensive, on average, since Super Bowl XLIII in Tampa, Florida between the Arizona Cardinals and Pittsburgh Steelers.

Super Bowl tickets currently have an average price on the secondary market of $3,019.99, which is down 24.65% from the $4,007.73 price at 9am on Conference Championship Sunday. The get-in price has also dropped to $1,392 down 37.38% from $2,233 at that same 9am time before the Conference Championships. While the average listed price is still over $3,000, the average price of a purchased ticket is $2,862.26.

The cheapest available tickets in the Mezzanine level is $1,781, down 39.89% since Conference Championship Sunday. In the Lower level, the cheapest seat is going for $1,870, which is a 40.29% decrease from before the Broncos clinched their spot in the Super Bowl. The most expensive seat is available in the Lower Club for $25,700. Those wanting to attend the game, but stay indoors could purchase a suite. The most expensive suite is currently listed for $686,000, with the cheapest suite available at $238,000. For a better idea of these seats, check TiqIQ’s MetLife Stadium seating chart.

Immediately after the Conference Championship Games, online searches for Super Bowl tickets were coming from Washington at the second highest rate of any location, behind New York, but ahead of searches from New Jersey. Now it seems most of the demand from Washington has faded with most people who were looking to purchase a ticket having already done so before the price drop. Now New York, New Jersey and Connecticut are bringing the heaviest online search volume for Super Bowl tickets.

With the possibility of the Seahawks winning their first Super Bowl in franchise history, any price could be worth it for the most die hard of the 12th man. Now that ticket prices have dropped significantly since Seattle first clinched a spot, now could be the time to buy for the best value.
