Tickets For Super Bowl Sunday Selling For Less Than Past Few Seasons

Last season tickets for Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis were at what seemed to be at an all-time high, but that was not too much of a stretch based on it being New York and New England (basically NY and Boston).

This season takes two teams from two coasts into New Orleans for the biggest game on Earth, with the San Francisco 49ers taking on the Baltimore Ravens. The 49ers have not played in the big game since beating up the Chargers in Super Bowl XXIX in 1995.

The Ravens last dance was their first, a win over the New York Giants back in Super Bowl XXXV in Tampa in 2001. It’s been a long drought for both teams fans, so with a week to go before the game, how are Super Bowl tickets selling?

Actually, the lowest it has in about three years. Forbes put out a piece today talking about the markets for the game, and sites where you can pick up tickets, since of course you can’t get them from the NFL unless you win a drawing held every year when you send in a postcard.

Right now there are a little over 4,900 tickets available on the secondary market, with an average ticket price of $3,177.14. The lowest price to get in to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome is $1,930.

The price during the week likely will go up a little, but with 7 days to go before kickoff, if your willing, you can get a ticket a wee bit cheaper than in years past, which is good news for Ravens faithful.
