Looking for a last-second deal in Super Bowl tickets for Sunday’s game between the Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Rams? Well, your patience has paid off big time.
Ticket resale company TickPick reported this week that the cost for buying Super Bowl tickets has fallen about $1,000 in the past 48 hours. That is quite significant.
“Kyle Zorn, who works for the company, tweeted that the asking price for a seat in Section 506 has fallen from $5,400 to $4,462 and added that there is still inventory, which could lead to lower prices.
As of Thursday morning, StubHub’s cheapest ticket for sale dropped to $3,300 in Section 532.”
The Super Bowl is always a hot ticket, but with the Rams playing in their home stadium, die-hard Bengals fans flying in from Cincinnati, and no attendance restrictions for the first time in two years, demand is skyrocketing.
The average U.S. salary in 2019 was around $52K, meaning a game like the Super Bowl, plus transportation, parking, food and beverages, are largely out of reach for the average American family.
We’re not even counting in the many local hotels who are definitely price gouging to make incoming visitors pay crazy amounts just to stay a day or two.
