Super Bowl Ticket Prices Drop More Than 25% on Secondary Market In One Day(January 09, 2014)
East Rutherford, New Jersey (PRWEB) January 09, 2014
Many websites like StubHub and SuperBowlTickets.net experienced a big drop in pricing as of Wednesday for upper level seating locations for Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Websites are now showing prices from $2,350 to $2,550 down from $3,350 only days prior. The big price change happened following wild card weekend within the NFL playoffs. Experts attribute the drop in price to the loss of powerful fan bases like Philadelphia, Green Bay, Cincinnati and Kansas City in last weekends playoff games.
In response to the big decline, Tim Mooney, owner of the New Jersey-based SuperBowlTickets.net said, "I can't see the prices dropping much lower. The population base in the region is just too strong. We can all drive to MetLife Stadium within 2 hours; it's a lifetime bucket list event for NFL fans."
With four of the remaining eight teams based on West Coast in Denver, Seattle, San Francisco and San Diego, this may either be a positive or negative for ticket prices. Mooney said, "It may help our hotel packages that include game tickets, but not exactly sure if it will help game day only tickets."
