When it comes to sporting events there is no other game like the Super Bowl. For over 50 years, the NFL has produced some amazing games to close out the season. We would like to go over a lot of questions that are asked each year about getting Super Bowl tickets. Our goal is to provide you with enough information so you can make a smart decision when buying seats to the big game. Without a doubt, this is the most expensive sporting game in the United States each year. You can see tickets from $2000 all the way up to $50,000. These are absurdly crazy prices and we hope you find a deal that works for your budget.
Getting Some Great Seats
Unless you are a season-ticket holder for the team that you want to see, as of right now you cannot get into SoFi Stadium for less than $5300. We know that a lot of tickets get released throughout the next few weeks. It’s up to you to find seats whether you are a fan of the team or not. It takes quite a bit to get tickets to the Super Bowl.
When it comes to seats, it’s up to you to figure out how much you want to spend. There are no cheap tickets to Super Bowl. The supply is limited and the demand is high, which makes the prices of tickets go up all the way up until the start of the game. Some people want to go to the game but still list their seats at an astronomical price to see if someone is willing to pay it. You can see people get tickets for $3000 and some seats for $25,000. This is a common situation in the third-party ticket market. We’ll get into more about ticket exchanges shortly.
If you’re willing to pay for 50 lard line seats you will have the best seats in the building. These are the seats that will cost the most amount of money but also provide you with the most VIP packages possible. You can also sit in the club-level seats which will give you all kinds of amenities to enjoy the Super Bowl. A lot of times people go to the game just to say they’ve gone to Super Bowl. You can run into all kinds of celebrities and other figures from around the world. We always talk about sitting in a seat that gives you access to the field. However, when it comes to the Super Bowl upper deck seats may be worth the cost if you just want to go to the game.
Some Common Super Bowl Questions
When is the date of the game? Super Bowl LVI occurs on February 13, 2022.
Where is the location of the Super Bowl this year? You will find the Super Bowl at the SOFI Stadium in Inglewood, California. It is the first time in over 30 years that a huge game has been held in Los Angeles. SOFI Stadium hosts both the Los Angeles Rams and the Los Angeles Chargers. This was the first year fans were allowed into the stadium because of the COVID 19 situation.
How many tickets are available for the Super Bowl? There is always a give-and-take on the big number but you can expect to see 70,000 people at Super Bowl LVI.
Who is performing the halftime show? There is a fun lineup for the Pepsi Super Bowl halftime show. You will see the likes of Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Mary J Blige, and Eminem.
Have Super Bowl tickets gone on sale? Yes, you can look at many of the different sites and purchase your tickets right now. There are still tons of seats that have yet to be released based on who is going to be playing. This will change as we get closer to the game. You can also purchase packages from several different companies that guarantee you tickets to the game. These packages will most likely include hotel, transportation, and all kinds of amenities.
Is there a chance that the Super Bowl will get canceled or postponed? This is a very unlikely situation. The game will go on unless something drastic happens. We are very far into this pandemic and to not let fans go to the biggest game in the world would do a disservice to everyone’s mindset. You can expect the game to go on with fans intact. In the instance of some kind of crazy event, you can expect a credit on your tickets for a full refund.
What method will you get your tickets in? A lot of tickets will come through email or through your mobile device. This is the way it has been for several years now since most of the stadiums have gone to the mobile device method. This ensures real tickets are being used and the transfer of tickets is secure. We suggest you test out your Super Bowl tickets on your mobile device before going to the stadium. You can always contact, customer service to make sure everything is in working order. Each person should have their ticket on them no matter what. This will allow you to make sure everyone in your party gets into the game. We also suggest you place your digital ticket inside your mobile wallet. This will allow you to get access to your tickets without some kind of data connection such as Wi-Fi or a cell tower.
Are you looking for the most expensive ticket at the Super Bowl?
SOFI Stadium is a state-of-the-art facility that will bring some great seats. If you’re looking for some VIP style of football watching, look for the lower level behind the sidelines. You can also consider the club level and VIP seats in the 200 level. The seats will all be located in the midfield area so keep that in mind when you are pricing your tickets.
Super Bowls in the Past
There have been plenty of Super Bowls in the past that have brought so much excitement to the fans. Whether you’re a fan of that team or not we all look for a good game to occur. We’ve also seen plenty of games go south and have a really bad watching experience. Here are some of the games we thought over the last decade or so that were worth going to.
Super Bowl LII – The Philadelphia Eagles versus the New England Patriots. This was one Super Bowl that had some highlights from both teams. It was the Eagles winning their first Super Bowl and bringing home the big prize. It was nice to see an underdog beat the patriots. This Super Bowl was held at US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Super Bowl LI – This Super Bowl also included the New England Patriots but had the Atlanta Falcons. The Atlanta Falcons had a huge lead get squandered by Tom Brady and the Patriots. This was definitely one of the games you wanted to see live. This game was played at an NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.
Super Bowl XLIX – This was one Super Bowl that came down to the wire. One last play to win the game and it was defended by the New England Patriots. The Seattle Seahawks were unable to finish off which would’ve been back-to-back Super Bowl victories. This game was held in the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
Super Bowl XLVII – The teams in this game were the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers. It ended up being a 34 to 31 won by the Ravens. This game was played in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.
A lot of people that do not care about football will still watch the game. Being the biggest spectacle in sports each year tens of thousands of new fans watch their first Super Bowl. It also brings in some great halftime entertainment. As we mentioned above there are some great performers that will be on stage at Super Bowl LVI. The likes of Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg will definitely bring some great entertainment on the day of the big game. People actually pay big bucks just to go see the halftime show live.
Super Bowl LVI Packages
We mentioned above about getting a VIP package. There are a lot of groups that will create packages that guarantee you tickets. Although you will pay a premium for your seats, you will be guaranteed a ticket for the game. You also have access to a hotel, airfare, amenities, and much more. It’s almost like you are signing up for peace of mind when attending a big football game. We only suggest you go this route if money is not a concern. There are a lot of options out there when attending a game so keep that in mind if you’re about to spend a fortune on tickets.
Who do we think will play in Super Bowl LVI?
We are currently writing this article a month out before the Super Bowl. This allows enough time for our readers to get to know what they need to do when it comes to buying tickets. There are several good teams this year, but when it comes to the playoffs, teams tend to change their direction. We do like the Green Bay Packers this year going against the Kansas City Chiefs. This was slated to happen last year but didn’t happen. It ended up being the Tampa Bay Buccaneers versus Kansas City Chiefs game. Unfortunately, this game didn’t carry much excitement. It was also during the COVID months where fans were spread out.
We can see Tampa Bay buccaneers beating the Green Bay Packers in Lambeau Field. This will come down to who wants it more and as you know, Tom Brady likes his Super Bowls. We don’t really have a sleeper pick in the playoffs right now. If we had to pick one team that can make a run it would be the Tennessee Titans. If they can get healthy and get Derek Henry back there’s a chance the Tennessee Titans get back to the Super Bowl.
Making the commitment
Going to a regular-season game is fairly simple. There are plenty of seats available each week and depending on where you want to sit will depend on how much you’ll spend. Unfortunately, when it comes to the Super Bowl you don’t really have that many options. Unless it’s your team in the Super Bowl and you have season tickets, the odds of you getting tickets at a fair price are slim. Prices will go up significantly so keep that in mind when making your purchase.
Some of the Ticket Vendors to Consider
We are currently working on another article that discusses in more detail about the different ticket exchanges. There are 100’s out there. We like to think that they all have good intentions when it comes to selling you seats. You have to remember these exchanges are used for buyers to meet up with sellers. A lot of times the ticket exchange gets blamed for an event that doesn’t go off or a ticket that doesn’t get transferred. Some people take advantage and think they can make money without having tickets. There’s been a lot of rules and terms put in place that will help prevent fraud when it comes to ticket purchasing. Here are a few places we recommend you look for tickets in the aftermarket.
SeatGeek – This is a ticket search engine providing you with a list of all available tickets. Do your research and you should be able to find some tickets at an affordable price.
StubHub – One of the original ticket exchanges, StubHub will guarantee their tickets like others. You may pay a little extra to use StubHub.
Ticketmaster – Our least favorite site is the monopoly of TicketMaster. They have too much control which lets them set the price on everything. We hope one-day things improve in presale tickets
Here is your chance in 2022 two make it out to a Super Bowl. This will be a big game for sure and one you want to attend. Although you need to consider all the different things that come with it including a place to stay or a flight to Los Angeles, we think there are some options for you. If you budgeted all year for tickets then this is the year you should go. Always consider what is out there when going to the game. There are a lot of seats and they’ll be a lot of tickets that are overpriced. Make sure you do your research on all the different sections throughout the stadium. Look for tickets that drop in price as you get closer to the game. We wish you all the best and hope you have a great game if you do attend. If you don’t make it out they’ll be another Super Bowl next year.
