Superbowl Ticket Prices Not Low Enough

Posted:

MILTON, Del. - Just last week, tickets to this year's Super Bowl in East Rutherford, NJ were selling on the Internet for no less than $2,500. However, the expected cold weather for the game on Sunday has turned many ticket holders into ticket sellers. Online prices have gone down hundreds of dollars.

Even though the prices have gone down considerably, it is still not enough to get many Sussex County football fans to make the trip up North.

Jason Parsley of Milton said he considered going to the game but the ticket prices are just not low enough to bare the temperatures.

"With this weather I would rather watch it on TV, sit there on my warm couch, with a blanket, watch the game with some buddies," he said. "But $1,300 is a little expensive to sit there shivering in the cold and 8 dollar beers."

Kristin Johnson agrees, and even said she would consider paying the current ticket prices if the game wasn't in New Jersey.

"I would probably go if it was a little more South where it's warmer just to get out of the cold weather," she explained.

Currently, the lowest ticket prices on ticket discount web sites are just under $1,300 which is surprisingly low for a Super Bowl game. But if you were to drive up from Delaware there are other costs to factor into this price. With tolls, hotel rooms and parking, it could end up costing someone over $2,000 for the entire trip.

But if the prices continue to drop this week, more people will most likely end up being willing to brave the cold.
