Broncos, Seahawks Fans Facing Most Expensive Super Bowl Tickets in Six Years
Peyton Manning is returning to the promised land, and he’s bringing his Denver Broncos along with him. If Manning can lead the Broncos to victory at MetLife Stadium, it will be the Broncos’ third Super Bowl title, and put them in elite company next to the Washington Redskins, Oakland Raiders and New England Patriots. While this is Manning’s third visit to the Super Bowl, it is the Broncos’ seventh, which puts them behind only the Dallas Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers for all-time appearances.
With all that’s on the line, Super Bowl tickets on the secondary market are more expensive than they’ve been in the last six seasons. Currently, tickets are $4,064 on average, and up 18.89% since January 6th. The current get-in price is $2,110. The average price is slightly higher than when the Green Bay Packers and Steelers faced each other three years ago, a game that had an average of $4,062 after Championship Sunday.
The Super Bowl price trend has otherwise been up and down since 2008, starting with the Steelers and Arizona Cardinals, which had a $2,097 average price, followed by the Indianapolis Colts and New Orleans Saints, which spiked up to $3,509. In 2012, the Patriots and New York Giants had an average price of $3,646, which was just ahead of last year’s epic showdown between the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens, which ended at an average of $3,083. While Seattle’s bid for their first ever Lombardi Trophy might be a big reason why fans from Seattle will make the trip to New York, Denver’s chance to win its third Super Bowl will also be incentive for Coloradans to make the trip east.
In addition to moving up the ranks of history at age 37, Manning may not have many more shots at winning it all. In many ways, it’s amazing that he’s gotten back to this position after missing an entire year due to a neck issue. Denver as a whole has taken on Manning’s persona, combined with other veterans like Champ Bailey (who will be playing in his first Super Bowl) and even former Patriot Wes Welker, who has gone 0-2 in the big game.
In an effort to see it through, many Broncos fans will want to be there to have their voice heard. Not everyone can afford the big seats, but simply getting in, for many, will do. Any Broncos fan looking to just get into MetLife on Super Bowl Sunday will pay $2,110 to sit in the upper end zone corner 348. For another $800, they can upgrade to the Mezzanine section or the lower level. Alternatively, Denver fans with big bucks could pay as much as $29,900 for the most expensive seat in the stadium in the lower club 113. Or they could go even further and opt for suites, with the most expensive suite listed at $1,019,000 and the least expensive going for $575,000. At a total of 30 people, that works out to roughly $20,000 a person.
