The Super Bowl is the National Football League championship game that matches up the champion from the American Football Conference against the champion of the National Football Conference. When then NFL commissioner Pete Rozelle helped create the Super Bowl, there is no way he could have guessed how big and important it would become.

That demand lends itself well on the secondary ticket market, where demand helps drive ticket prices. For marquee match-ups, i.e. New England Patriots vs. New York Giants in 2008, ticket prices reach four to five times more than face value, and sometimes even more than that.
