With prices continuing to increase as we draw closer to Super Bowl Sunday, now is the time to buy tickets. Both average price and get-in price have steadily risen over the last two days, and it appears that each will continue to do so as quantity dissipates.The low quantity and, more specifically, low amount of tickets in the Upper Level is driving get-in price up the past few days. 40 percent of remaining inventory is in the 100s level, 26 percent in the 300s level, 13 percent in the 500s level and 23 percent in the 600s level.

Prices Beginning to Increase for 2017 Super Bowl Tickets
(UPDATE 2/1/17) Heads up, Super Bowl ticket buyers – the market is starting to tick back up in the days prior to kickoff.
With Super Bowl LI just four days away, ticket prices are increasing on the resale market. 2017 Super Bowl tickets on TicketIQ now own an average resale price of $4,243, up 4 percent from Tuesday afternoon’s record low of $4,062. Get-in price has shot back up over the last 24 hours as well and now sits at $2,043 (up from Tuesday’s $1,663 get-in).
Credit Tuesday’s price drop to the influx of ticket quantity on the resale market. While this year’s Super Bowl still owns the least amount of available tickets TicketIQ has ever tracked, nearly 600 tickets hit the market between Monday and Tuesday, resulting in an average and get-in price drop. Quantity has dropped back to just over 2,700 as of Wednesday morning, which has allowed prices to increase slightly over the last 24 hours.
The solution for those still on the fringe of buying? Consider purchasing your tickets soon, as prices may continue to increase over the next four days.
With Prices for Super Bowl LI Tickets Dropping, Now May Be the Best Time to Buy
(UPDATE 1/30/17) Super Bowl LI is just days away, and now may be the time to get your hands on tickets to the Big Game in Houston.
Resale ticket prices continued to tumble over the weekend, with both average price and get-in price reaching their lowest price points yet this year. On TicketIQ the average resale price for Super Bowl LI tickets is now $4,417, marking a 9 percent drop from Friday’s $4,854 average. The cheapest tickets are currently listed from $2,116 in the 600s corner section of NRG Stadium.
Even though prices have dropped with the increase in number of tickets, quantity remains historically low for Sunday’s game. The perception that waiting until the eleventh hour to purchase tickets at the cheapest price points may not hold true this season, however. On Location Experiences, the official ticketing and traveling partner of the NFL, may forgo releasing more tickets to the public over the next seven days in order to “untrain” fans from making last-minute purchases.
Nearly half of the remaining available inventory (43 percent) is in the 100s level. That gives fans interested in those sections more wiggle room to work with as prices could continue to fall. For fans looking to just get in on Sunday, though, a decision to buy should be made sooner rather than later as less inventory remains in the upper sections of the stadium. That being said, now could be the best time to take advantage while the market continues to fall.
Number of Tickets Is Now Higher Than Get-In Price for Super Bowl LI Tickets
(UPDATE 1/27/17) The waiting game is paying off for fans looking to purchase Super Bowl LI tickets.
Not only have prices continued to fall since Sunday’s Conference Championship Games, but another interesting trend has also developed. As of Friday afternoon, the number of available resale tickets was higher than the cheapest ticket price.
Super Bowl LI tickets are now averaging $4,854, marking a 20 percent tumble from Sunday night’s average of $6,091. It is the cheapest averaged tracked for this year’s game thus far. Perhaps more noteworthy is the opposing inventory and get-in trends, however. Just over 2,600 Super Bowl tickets are now available for purchase on TicketIQ. The cheapest available ticket is now listed from $2,392.
Should this year follow a similar price trend to Super Bowl XLVI (Super Bowl XLIX – the Patriots’ last Super Bowl appearance – was the result of a busted market), average price will drop another 31 percent while get-in tumbles 43 percent leading up to Super Bowl Sunday. That would make for a day-of-game average of $3,349 and $1,363 get-in price – the cheapest price points since Super Bowl XLVII between the Ravens and 49ers ($3,152 avg./$1,062 get-in)
Super Bowl LI Tickets Averaging Over $6,000 Following Conference Championship Round
(ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED 1/22/17) It’s official: the Atlanta Falcons will battle the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LI.
Sunday’s Conference Championship games were blowout affairs in Atlanta and Foxboro, as the Falcons cruised past the Green Bay Packers while the Patriots decimated the Pittsburgh Steelers. The two teams will meet at NRG Stadium in Houston on February 5th for rights to hoist the Lombardi Trophy, and Super Bowl tickets on the resale market won’t be cheap.
Following the Patriots’ win in the AFC Championship Game, Super Bowl LI tickets on TicketIQ were averaging $6,091. That makes it the second most expensive Super Bowl on average since at least 2010, when TicketIQ began tracking resale ticket data. The cheapest Super Bowl LI tickets are currently going for $3,046 each in the 600 sections of the stadium. Take a look at where Super Bowl ticket prices have stacked up since 2010 below:
While this year’s prices don’t come close to rivaling Super Bowl XLIX, 2015’s game in Arizona was the product of a busted market where brokers failed to fulfill exorbitantly-priced listings. Perhaps good news for fans, prices for Super Bowl LI tickets have dropped considerably over the last several weeks. Prior to the divisional round Super Bowl LI tickets were averaging $10,505, marking a 42 percent dip on average since then. Below is a weekly price trend for Super Bowl LI:
The Falcons head to their first Super Bowl since Super Bowl XXXIII in 1999, where they fell to the Denver Broncos at Pro Player Stadium in Miami. It will be their second Super Bowl appearance in franchise history. The Patriots will play in their record ninth Super Bowl and seek their fifth Super Bowl win.
