Regarding the history of tickets over the last decade:
Tickets for Super Bowl LIII are poised to be one of the most expensive sports ticket in history. According to data from TicketIQ.com, Super Bowl tickets are currently trending at $8,130, which will make them the most expensive of the decade by a long shot. The average asking price rose from $6,108 before the AFC and NFC conference championships were set. The next most expensive Super Bowl of the last 10 years was last year’s when fans paid $7,277 on the secondary market to see the Philadelphia Eagles beat the New England Patriots in Minneapolis.
Though tickets usually become less expensive as an event gets closer, the trend has been up, though that could change depending on which of the NFL’s “final four” get to the Super Bowl. A New England Patriots-New Orleans Saints matchup would likely be the priciest of the scenarios.
Last year, the average asking price increased from $8,024 to $9,060 between four weeks and two weeks out from the date of the Super Bowl. Prices dipped significantly by one week before the game, to $5,339, before jumping up to $7,277 on game day. The trend was similar, but even more pronounced in 2017.
