Super Bowl XLV ticket prices are high

Everyone knows the Super Bowl is an expensive ticket. But as Calvin Watkins of ESPN writes, this year’s Super Bowl matchup as well as the location (oil-rich Texas) has pushed prices even higher.

Locally, tickets for the Feb. 6 game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Green Bay Packers have an average price range between $2,100 and $8,000, according to Ram Silverman of Golden Tickets.

“They are readily available,” Silverman said. “Things started off pretty high, then it’s gotten steady.”

Silverman said the $200 Party Plaza tickets the NFL put on sale last week are going for about $375, and that price could keep rising as fans without tickets become desperate to be there for the game.

StubHub reports that the average asking price is $3,676. I generally use TicketLuck, which seems to have tickets for a more reasonable price for most events. Their cheapest ticket is around $1,600. An upper level seat at the 30-yard line is going for anywhere between $2,400-$2,600.

It will be interesting to see just how many Packer and Steeler fans actually make it to the game with prices this high.
