Super Bowl Tickets Resell at Lower Rates
Tickets for this year’s installment of the Super Bowl played on Sunday in Miami are reselling at higher prices than last year. Still, tickets purchased on the secondary market for any Super Bowl Game come at a high premium, as data from vendor TicketIQ shows. The average price of a ticket is currently at US$8,264, up from "only" US$4,972 last year. Secondary ticket prices are expected to rise in price until game day.
Another year on record when resold tickets were especially pricey was 2015. According to TicketIQ, prices may vary depending on how many tickets are released to the public each year, whether competing teams come from wealthier cities and even on how easy it is for fans to reach the Super Bowl from their respective home towns. While 3,000 tickets were available on the market on Jan 29, those numbers were significantly lower in 2018, driving up prices.
