How much do Super Bowl tickets cost?

You already know it’s going to cost a pretty penny if you want tickets to Super Bowl 52. I learned just how much though an online search.

While ticket prices are expensive regardless of where you're sitting, the cost varies widely.

First the good news if you're a fan of the New England Patriots or the Philadelphia Eagles. Ticket prices on the secondary market have fallen by 25 percent over the last few days and the inventory of available tickets grew by 75 percent after last Sunday's conference championship games.

That's likely because many Minnesota Vikings fans, who'd already bought Super Bowl tickets in anticipation that their team would be playing in the Super Bowl on their home field, put them back on the market when the Vikings lost.

Still, the average price for a ticket to the Super Bowl game in Minneapolis has reached a new record of nearly $6,800. Even the cheapest seats will cost you $3,400.

The face value of this year's Super Bowl tickets ranges from $6,000 to $12,000. But the vast majority of tickets that don't go to the teams, media or sponsors, will end up on the resale market.

One fan reportedly paid more than $132,000 for 10 seats on the 35-yard line in the lower level of U.S. Bank stadium.

By comparison, the average cost of a ticket to the first Super Bowl in 1967 was about $10. That would be $75 now when adjusted for inflation, and the NFL couldn't even sell out that historic game.
