Super Bowl Get-In Price More Expensive Than Recent Average Ticket Prices
We’re now nine days out from Super Bowl LVIII, and ticket prices are trending higher compared to this date the past few years.
In fact, the get-in price for this year’s matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs is higher than the average ticket price of the last few years.
Last year, the average ticket price nine days out to the Big Game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs was $6,895. Meanwhile, the get-in price for the Feb. 11 game is currently sitting at $7,900.
In 2020 – the last time the 49ers and Chiefs met in the Super Bowl – the average ticket price was $4,000. That means the average ticket was just half of the get-in price this year.
So, what’s the draw?
Chiefs fans travel well, and 49ers fans don’t have too far to go, so there would be a crowd anyway, but the demand for tickets still seems higher than in recent years.
One driving factor is location. This year marks the first time Las Vegas is hosting the Super Bowl – on top of that, it’s in Allegiant Stadium, a new state-of-the-art building that opened in 2020.
Some people booked their flight to Vegas even before they knew the teams that were going to be in it, just because they wanted a reason to visit the strip. Some fans might have planned their travel details already but are waiting to decide whether they want to go to the game or not – if not, they’ll just join their fellow football fans at a sportsbook down the road.
Vegas isn’t the only reason people want to go. The 49ers are looking for revenge of the Chiefs, who beat them 31-20 in the Super Bowl for the 2019 season. There are also some newfound Chiefs fans this year interested in going thanks to Taylor Swift.
With several other Super Bowl-related events in the week leading up to the game in “Sin City” on Sunday, it could be the biggest Super Bowl ever.
