Update: We’re now just hours away from kick-off, but there are still hundreds of Super Bowl tickets remaining, and not all of them are out of reach. While yesterday’s $196,785 seat and plenty of other ‘ambitious’ listings remain at laughably high prices, we have seen prices start to drop on a lot of the entry-level listings. StubHub has some for $5,709, and VividSeats prices have dropped as low as $5,729. both sites’ cheapest prices were over $6,000 a few days ago. There’s a strong chance prices will drop more closer to the 3:30 p.m. PT start, too.

This is shaping up to be the most expensive Super Bowl yet, with some astronomical prices making headlines since the AFC and NFC championship games wrapped up. We’ve been scouring official reseller sites and have seen Super Bowl ticket prices significantly increase over recent days. When we originally published this article on Friday, prices had peaked at the dizzy heights of $51,030.
It turns out that price was a mere base camp compared to the new peak price we woke up to on Saturday, though, as StubHub features a new listing for a pair of Super Bowl tickets priced at $196,875 each. There are another five listings priced upwards of $117,000, too.
Thankfully, we’ve seen many more listings at more realistic prices, starting at a much more modest $5,798. There’s a strong chance prices could drop further the closer we get to the game too as resllers won’t want to walk away with nothing.
Tickets are all digital now and scanned at the gate from your phone. So you really could pick one up right before kickoff at 3:30 p.m. PT / 6:30 p.m. ET, as there’s no need to wait for any physical delivery.
We’ve been tracking the prices all week in our guide on how to buy Super Bowl tickets, and the cheapest seats have sadly been going up in price all week. And as these cheap seats, often up in the nosebleeds, thin out, fans have fewer options except for ones approaching and blowing way past the $10,000 mark.
Gargantuan amounts of money, especially when there are multiple options for free Super Bowl live streams. Ok, maybe we’re a bit thriftier than your average hardcore NFL fan, or perhaps we’d prefer blowing all that cash on a Super Bowl TV deal on a model so big we can pretend we’re actually there.
Latest reseller Super Bowl ticket prices
StubHub, at the time of writing, still has 481 listings available, down from 595 yesterday. Prices start at $6,083, and on Friday, they had climbed up to $51,030. This morning, though, the day before the event, we saw some very optimistic resellers with listings priced up to $196,875. These are the prices per ticket when bought in a pair.
Vividseats doesn’t say how many listings it has, but it seems like a smaller selection, with less variety regarding views around the stadium. But it is cheaper in range, starting at $5,726 and ending at $23,522.
SeatGeek is undoubtedly one to watch, too, as it still has 417 listings. Prices start at $6,042 each in a pair and climb to $37,331.
If you’re already in Las Vegas or planning on squeezing as much entertainment as possible while you’re there, you could also treat yourself to a show on Saturday night. Take a look at the latest prices for Adele tickets at Caesars Palace or U2 Sphere tickets at the new mind-blowing venue. Outside of Vegas, you could probably see all of the acts below combined for the price of one Super Bowl ticket.
How to travel to Las Vegas for the Super Bowl
Las Vegas is one of the most popular travel locations for tourists in the world, so even with the Super Bowl coming to town, there is no shortage of hotels, Airbnbs, and flights to Sin City. Like with the tickets, though, the longer you leave it, the more expensive things could get, and you might be situated further away than you originally planned.
We’ve picked out a few travel and accommodation options to help you plan your trip after you’ve sorted your Super Bowl tickets. Seriously, get those locked in before making any travel plans whatsoever.
