Next Sunday’s Super Bowl in Los Angeles will feature a glitzy new stadium, a team playing on its home field, and no COVID-19 capacity restrictions.
It will also feature ticket prices on par with some of the highest in recent Super Bowl history.
The average price of a ticket was a whopping $9,648 last Friday, according to SeatGeek’s ticket tracker.
The most expensive ticket topped $70,891, per SeatGeek.
On Friday, Ticketmaster was touting VIP seats that cost $60,000 without fees.
Even the cheapest seats have been hovering around $5,000, per KTLA — fans purchasing from Ticketmaster would have to shell out at least $4,800, not including fees, as of Friday.
A trip to SoFi Stadium might become more affordable as the Super Bowl nears, however. “Prices generally tend to fall as kickoff approaches,” according to SeatGeek’s tracker.
This year’s average ticket prices are higher than the past few years, according to NBC.
The average ticket for the 2021 Super Bowl in Tampa Bay went for $8,609, while the price for the 2020 Super Bowl in Miami was $7,172.
