The time has come on Sunday February 11th. Then the legendary Super Bowl takes place at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. With possibly Taylor Swift in the stands to cheer on her great love Travis Kelce of the Kansas City Chiefs against the San Francisco 49ers. But the mega-popular singer would not be the reason why anyone who wants to experience the 58th American football final live has to pay a historic price this year.
The Super Bowl is an organization of the National Football League (NFL) and pits the champions of two different professional leagues (American Football Conference and National Football Conference) against each other to determine the big NFL winner. The Super Bowl is one of the most important sporting events in the US and often attracts record numbers of viewers, which have exceeded a hundred million in recent years.
Sitting live in the stadium is something else, but the price for such a seat has never been as high as for Super Bowl 58 in Las Vegas. This is evident from data from TickPick and SeatGeek, where you can buy and sell tickets. With these two providers, the average ticket prices for Super Bowl 58 are around 9,700 and 11,150 euros respectively. Last year the average price was 5,350 euros at TickPick and 8,225 euros at SeatGeek. At SeatGeek you paid an average of 4,920 euros for the Super Bowl 53 five years ago, compared to 11,150 euros this year. The cheapest seat in the stadium can currently be found on TickTick for no less than 7,200 euros. And the cheaper, the further from the players.
Why so high?
Where do those record prices come from? “The reason why prices may be higher than normal and demand may be higher than normal honestly has a lot to do with the location of the competition,” SeatGeek marketing director Chris Leyden told USA Today. Even before last year’s Super Bowl 57, Leyden had predicted that prices would reach record highs for this year’s Super Bowl 58 in Las Vegas, “regardless of who plays in the final.” According to Leyden, the record makes it happen that “so many people who may not be fans of the Chiefs or the 49ers still want to go to the Super Bowl.” “They specifically choose this edition to go to because of everything Vegas has to offer, the splendor and splendor.”
Leyden therefore does not think that the possibility that Taylor Swift will attend the competition will have an influence on the prizes, he concluded. It would be the thirteenth time that Taylor Swift has come to support her loved one.
