Prices continued their trend downward as the Super Bowl LII ticket market churned with just over a week to go before gametime on February 4 at US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. The only question is – how far will things fall?
As of 11AM Friday, most secondary marketplaces have prices under $4,000, marking a steep drop from early in the week. Ticketmaster’s get-in price has fallen 33% through the week. Vivid Seats and StubHub have dropped even further – by 38%. Ticket Club, which remains the best deal as it has been throughout, has fallen by 27% since the same time Monday morning.
Currently, the get-in prices are as follows:
Ticket Club members still have the best Super Bowl LII get-in price at $3,270 per ticket for a pair in Section 349, Row 23. Vivid Seats has the second-lowest ticket on offer, with its current best price coming via a pair in Section 308, Row 26. StubHub is next, with two tickets in Section 347, Row 18 currently available for $3,662. Finally there’s Ticketmaster, where the current best price is a pair in Secction 303, Row 19. Those are the lone get-in above $4,000 at the moment, fetching $4,266 – though to be fair, there was a sub-$4K ticket on offer earlier in the day that must have sold, moving the minimum price up.
Without a doubt, there’s no shortage of people who are going to pick up tickets to see the Philadelphia Eagles try to end that teams championship drought and/or the New England Patriots rack up yet another in the incredible run of the Brady/Belichick era. But how far will the market fall to meet them?
TicketNetwork CEO Don Vaccaro postulated that the prices might still have a long way to fall with so much time left and the possibility that those holding tickets will begin to drop even more drastically than we have in this first week since the hometown Vikings fell shy of making the Super Bowl a home contest.
“Super Bowl ticket prices will drop to $2,000 by next week,” he said in a post on LinkedIn discussing yesterday’s pricing update.
