New York, New York (PRWEB) September 25, 2013
Are you the ultimate football fanatic? Have you always wanted to attend the most exciting sporting event in the U.S.? Now you can find the cheapest Super Bowl tickets at Ticket Monster.
The 2014 Super Bowl will be played for the first time ever in the New York Metropolitan area. The game will be hosted in the New York Giants and New York Jets home venue, MetLife Stadium. Opened in just 2010, MetLife is located in the Meadowland Sports Complex in East Rutherford, New Jersey, and is home to many other events besides football.
For the Super Bowl XLVIII game, the NFL is currently working on a plan that would drastically raise ticket prices for the big day. Reportedly, according to The Wall Street Journal, club level seats will cost about $2,600. These seats are located in the mezzanine, and have easy access to the stadium restaurants. The same tickets to last year’s game in New Orleans cost $1,250. The next cheapest tickets will still cost more than last year’s most expensive, quoted at $1,500.
Super Bowl tickets may seem like a confusing system to the general public. Here is a quick breakdown of the distribution of tickets:
The NFL only controls about 25% of all Super Bowl tickets each year. With that 25% they normally distribute to corporate sponsors and other partners. The two teams playing in the game get to distribute about 35% of the seats available out. Many people who get these tickets for free flip them at a marked up price, raising the average price of a ticket even more. For the general public to obtain a ticket, the NFL holds a lottery for upper level tickets. Last year, these tickets started at $600. There were 500 winners last year, and it was reported by the NFL that 60% of those winners went ahead and resold them before the game. For the upcoming Super Bowl in February, the NFL will give out 1000 tickets, but this year they will be non-transferable. It has not been approved yet, but those who win a lottery ticket will be asked to pick up their ticket at the stadium on game day. Lastly, non-competing teams will obtain 1.2% of available tickets to distribute to their fans.
To no one's fault other than the ticket scalpers, tickets to this first cold weather Super Bowl game are going to cost more than they ever have. The reason for the rise in prices is because of the league’s desire to close the gap between the face value price and the price that scalpers sell for. In the open market, it is assumed that $600 tickets will sell for $2,000, and the better tickets for over $6,000.
For those who are willing to wait until the last minute, it is possible that fewer than 40% of tickets will be sold for less than $1,000. The least expensive ticket a fan can buy will hopefully be $500.
