Want to make the trip to Glendale, AZ? It will likely mean shelling out some serious cash.
The countdown to Super Bowl LVII has entered its final stretch, with Chiefs and Eagles fans still flooding the ticket market less than a week out from the Big Game. Seats to State Farm Stadium are going for historic prices, as Kansas City and Philadelphia devotees prove they have no issue traveling cross-country for Sunday’s showdown. According to Forbes, the average ticket for this year’s Super Bowl is the second-most expensive ever.
Per SI Tickets, the average ticket price is posted at a whopping $8,145. That price tag is actually a 23.51% drop from Jan. 30, the day after the NFC and AFC championship games. The cheapest seat isn’t much of a bargain either, with a spot in the nosebleeds available for just over $5,000 on SI Tickets. This year’s contest is on pace with last year’s get-in price, which, according to The Sporting News, was posted at $5,823. A more desirable seat at midfield is currently going for $31,108 apiece—the most expensive ticket in the house.
Demand among both the Chiefs and Eagles fanbases appears remarkably strong even though Kansas City walked away with the Lombardi Trophy in 2020 and Philadelphia in 2018. Fueling the fervent hunt for Super Bowl LVII tickets is likely the generational talent on both squads, with the matchup billed as a duel between MVP candidates Jalen Hurts and Patrick Mahomes. The event won’t be lacking in entertainment either, with one of the world’s largest and most elusive acts, Rihanna, headlining the halftime stage. The star power on and off the field looks to have lured spectators to a less prominent market in Arizona, while recent Super Bowls have been hosted in larger cities like Los Angeles, Miami and Atlanta.
The weekend’s festivities are expected to bring a surge of visitors to Phoenix, culminating with Sunday’s game, which is set to kick off at 6:30 p.m. ET.
