The Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots are heading to Super Bowl LIII, and thousands of people have already punched their tickets for entrance to Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on February 3. If you want to join them in celebration of Super Bowl 53, the time is now.
Super Bowl LIII tickets command an outrageously expensive price tag, but that won’t hinder die-hard football fans from getting a seat to the big game. Back mid-December, the average get-in price was listed for $4,000. Now two weeks from game day, consumers will still need to shell out thousands of dollars to attend. Scoring the best price can be a jarring task, leaving the average NFL shopper questioning where to look.
For those of you itching to go to the game, you’ll need to know that prices are based on supply and demand. Unless you have an inside connection for tickets, a bulk of the remaining inventory will be found on the resale market.
Currently, the cheapest tickets available for purchase are on Zeromarkup.com. On this service fee-free site consumers can score a single seat in Upper Corner 327, Row 24 for as low as $3,343. The second cheapest ticket is found on Ticketclub.com, which similarly does not charge service fees. For only $15 more than ZeroMarkup, fans will find a seat in Upper Endzone 325, Row 32 for $3,357.99.
Through price analysis, both of these websites are much less expensive than other Super Bowl tickets on the secondary market. The cheapest single ticket on the NFL’s “On Location experience” site was $3,932 for a single spot in Upper corner 321, Row 19. Over on StubHub, $4,072.18 was the best price for Upper Corner 326, Row 26. Lastly, on Ticketmaster’s NFL ticket exchange, the best price was $8,628 for a pair of tickets in Section 345, Row 18.

Typically, when searching for tickets, you finally find the price you’re willing to pay and head to checkout, just to see the price auto-update to an amount that’s more expensive than you anticipated. While on the hunt for the best Super Bowl deals, people inevitably will get thrown by drip pricing, which are substantial fees added at the last stage of the transaction. However, prices like these shouldn’t discourage you from bringing your family to see Super Bowl LIII.
If you want to completely avoid over-paying for tickets, the experience you are looking for can be found on sites like Ticket Club and ZeroMarkup, offering the ability to shop without the fear of hidden service fees.
