Fans that would like to attend the Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on Feb. 2 will have to be prepared to put a big dent in their bank accounts as prices will more than double from last years game in New Orleans.

 

The NFL expects the most expensive tickets to be about $2,600 each for 9,000 premium seats while the next tier of seats is expected to go for $1,500 while about 40 percent of general admission seats will be under $1,000.

 

"We are looking to close the gap between the face value of the ticket and its true value as reflected on the secondary market," NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said Tuesday. "The uniqueness of the Super Bowl in the New York/New Jersey is also driving unprecedented demand and buzz."

 

In other words, the NFL believes that if they charge scalped prices to begin with that they can increase their profits.

 

Maybe one of these years a regular fan with an average income will be able to afford a Super Bowl ticket, but I highly doubt it. It seems as if only rich people and large corporations can afford to witness a Super Bowl in person.
