The showdown is set. After dominant performances in the AFC and NFC Championships, the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers will face off in Super Bowl LIV. The anticipated match-up – which will go down February 2 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami – is already heating up the ticketing market. But what do early trends show when it comes to Super Bowl LIV tickets? And just how much adjustment will there be in the days leading up to the big game?
According to Ticket Club data, current prices are on the rise. As they stand immediately following the AFC and NFC Championships, Super Bowl LIV tickets are costing an average of $5,200. That figure is over $1,500 more than last year’s average. In fact, current Super Bowl ticket prices are more than double what they were in 2014 when the going rate was roughly $2,000.
Super Bowl Ticket Pricing Trends
This year’s game has seen a wide cost range just within the past few weeks. Super Bowl LIV tickets sold for over $5,000 in the days leading up to the Wild Card round. However, prices quickly dropped following early playoff action. This clashed with historic trends, and was likely because of upsets handed to the defending champions Patriots and NFC South leader Saints. Prices bounced back after the divisional round provided thrills and now continue to climb.
In the wake of the Chiefs and 49ers securing their trip, base admission into the game is also rising. Most major resale sites saw a significant jump in minimum Super Bowl ticket prices over the weekend. However, when it comes to securing the best deal, there’s no beating Ticket Club. Our marketplace has consistently seen the lowest prices among competitors since the start of NFL playoffs. This will likely continue all the way through kickoff come Super Bowl Sunday.
Super Bowl Get-In Price Trends – Ticket Club vs. Other Resale Sites
Total costs for entry into the game have consistently ran over $6,000 on StubHub throughout the playoffs. Meanwhile Vivid Seats has been in the $5k to $6k range. On the other hand, Ticket Club members could snag Super Bowl tickets for under $4,000 throughout most of January. Base prices have only recently been on rise following AFC and NFC Championship action.
Other sites add up to 25 percent extra per ticket in service fees, which Ticket Club proudly does not. This model ends up saving members money every time. And with big events like the Super Bowl, the savings are in the thousands. Take into account what the same pair of tickets would cost fans per each site.
Two tickets in the eighth row of upper endzone section 329 carry differing costs depending on the site. StubHub buyers will think they’ve found the best deal at first glance with each ticket costing $4,812. Vivid Seats lists the ticket price as $4,832 while Ticket Club is listed at $5,600. However, when factoring in service and delivery fees, Ticket Club’s fee-free total comes in over $1,000 less than the others. Even if you aren’t a current Ticket Club member, the one-time $50 cost to sign up will be saved many times over on just the purchase of Super Bowl tickets.
These roller coaster trends we’ve witnessed will undoubtedly change in the days ahead. Stay tuned here for the latest on Super Bowl tickets and be sure to get the cheapest seat in Miami from Ticket Club. Browse Super Bowl LIV tickets here.
