The NFL's proposed Super Bowl ticket hike is claimed to be an effort to bridge the gap between face value of tickets, and actual market costs.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 26, 2013
There have been speculation over a potential Super Bowl ticket price hike for this year's Super Bowl XLVIII game, which will be hosted February 2nd, 2014 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford NJ. Matthew Futterman of the Wall Street Journal* had recently spoken with three NFL league officials in regards to the proposed Super Bowl ticket hike. The decision would make a single premium ticket to a historically costly game already, twice as much from $1,250 a ticket to a whopping $2,600 per ticket.
The NFL's proposed Super Bowl ticket hike is claimed to be an effort to bridge the gap between face value of tickets, and actual market costs. For those of you not familiar with how the event ticket prices works, it is based on the simple practice of supply and demand. The more popular the event and limited quantity of tickets available will mean that the ticket price will go up, and vice versa, meaning ticket prices depending on popularity can go above or below the face value of a ticket. Generally, most sports, concert, and theatre fans will rarely, if ever, pay face value for a ticket considering it's more of a starting price which fluctuates drastically.
Not only will the 9,000 premium seats see a doubling in price, the tickets will have to be purchased and registered to a specific person's name and then distributed at the venue to prevent and reselling of the tickets. Not a bad plan for those fortunate enough to pay $2,600 per seat to watch the Super Bowl. Fortunately, not every ticket will cost as much as peoples mortgages for the Super Bowl, with cheaper seats expected to be reduced by an average of $100, and the NFL is planning to have roughly 77,500 seats priced under $1,000.
Fortunately, companies like SuperStarTickets.com, a popular online ticket seller, takes into consideration all these factors and have been actively reducing NFL ticket prices in light of the news to promote more trust and understanding to the millions of Americans looking to find affordable NFL tickets to their favorite teams games.
