the Most Expensive Super Bowl Ticket Cost $25,400

As Super Bowl 50 approaches, fans of the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos — and football fans in general — are scrambling to find reasonably priced seats at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California. At last check, the average list price of a ticket to the February 7 event was a whopping $5,659.60. Some individual seats are being sold for several times more than this. One — seat 138, row 22 — is available for an unbelievable $25,400.

This year’s average Super Bowl ticket is 17.10% higher than it was at this time last year — which could mean prices will go even higher from here. By the time the 2015 Super Bowl was underway, secondary market tickets averaged $9,722.86 per game, by far the most expensive on record. Even if prices do not increase any further, they will have already more than doubled the final price of the 2014 event in New Jersey — Super Bowl XLVIII averaged “just” $2,567.00. Secondary market ticket resource TiqIQ provided 24/7 Wall St. with the average ticket price for the previous six Super Bowls as well as the current prices for the upcoming game to be held in San Francisco.

Ticket prices for the biggest game in North American professional sports can fluctuate wildly. Fans sitting in the 400s section are currently paying an average of $3,289 per seat, while those in the 100s level are spending close to $900 more on average. Of course, there are sections that run closer to $10,000, and individual seats that exceed $25,000 — a brand new Honda Civic and a seat in the uppe as the $25,400 seat, which approximately at the 50 yard line — on sale for $25,400. Box suites are available for more than $350,000.
