Super Bowl XLVIII

Super Bowl XLVIII will be played on February 2, 2014 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. It will be the first outdoor, cold weather Super Bowl. It will also be the first Super Bowl to be hosted by two states (New York and New Jersey) and by two teams (New York Giants and New York Jets).

How much will tickets cost?

Super Bowl Tickets Controlled by NFL

Super Bowl XLVIII tickets are tightly controlled by the National Football League and are in very high demand.

Most tickets will be made available to the teams participating in the Super Bowl, to the other NFL teams, and to the sponsors, broadcasters and other business partners of the NFL.

The general public can purchase Super Bowl tickets from the NFL only through a random drawing. Entries for the Super Bowl 2014 random drawing must be submitted between February 1 and June 1, 2013. The entry must include full name, address, city, state, zip code, phone number and email. Only one entry per address will be accepted. Entries must be sent via certified or registered mail to:

Super Bowl Random Drawing
P.O. Box 49140
Strongsville, OH 44149-0140

Winners of the random drawing will be notified via regular mail in late October / early November of their eligibility to purchase Super Bowl tickets. Of course, winners must still pay for the tickets.

There is also a random drawing for individuals with disabilities and their companions that require them to sit in designated wheelchair seat areas. Entries for the Super Bowl XLVIII ADA random drawing must be submitted between February 1 and September 1, 2013. The entry must include full name, address, city, state, zip code, phone number and email. Only one entry per address will be accepted. Entries must be sent via certified or registered mail to:

Super Bowl ADA Random Drawing
345 Park Avenue
New York, NY 10154

Winners of the ADA random drawing will also be notified via regular mail in late October / early November of their eligibility to purchase designated wheelchair and companion Super Bowl tickets. The NFL has reserved the right to prosecute anyone who fraudulently obtains such tickets.

Beware of Fake Super Bowl Tickets

Due to their extreme popularity and high prices, beware of buying fake Super Bowl tickets from non-NFL sources.

Super Bowl tickets incorporate security devices to discourage counterfeiting. These devices may include holograms, custom laser cutouts, thermochromic ink and a special glass varnish. Super Bowl tickets are also tracked and can be invalidated if reported lost or stolen.

The NFL's website recommends buying Super Bowl tickets from the NFL Ticket Exchange to avoid buying fakes. It also warns that buying tickets from a non-NFL affiliate may be risky as there is no way to know if a ticket is genuine until game time. Even if it looks real, a ticket may have been reported as lost or stolen, in which case the holder won't be admitted.

Thus, beware of buying fake Super Bowl tickets. If purchasing from a non-NFL affiliate, ask for a guarantee of authenticity plus assurances the person or entity selling the ticket will stand behind that guarantee. Follow the rule of caveat emptor: "let the buyer beware".

Super Bowl Tickets from Other Sources

There are many other sources of Super Bowl 2014 tickets, so you can still go to the Big Game even if you don't win the NFL's random drawing.

These other ticket sources vary in the markup of the ticket prices above their face values along with the degree of risk that the tickets will be counterfeit.

The NFL's website recommends buying Super Bowl tickets from the NFL Ticket Exchange to avoid the risk of buying fakes (inset). The Exchange is operated by Ticketmaster and is the only NFL-approved resale marketplace for NFL tickets. Buyers receive a guarantee that any tickets they buy are 100% authentic and will be delivered on time. Super Bowl tickets will almost always be priced far above their face values. These prices may be higher than the prices offered by other sources due to the Exchange's guarantees and association with the NFL. At this time, the NFL Ticket Exchange is not yet offering any Super Bowl 2014 tickets for sale.

Super Bowl 2014 tickets can also be purchased indirectly from companies specializing in event travel. For example, GoTickets is currently offering a selection of Super Bowl 2014 tickets, ranging from $2440 each for two tickets in the upper level endzone to $8095 each for two tickets in the club level 10 to 50 yard line. GoTickets also offers a number of travel packages including tickets, transportation, hotel stays, and admission to Super-Bowl related events and festivities.

Other event companies offering Super Bowl 2014 tickets and travel packages include QuintEvents, VividSeats, PrimeSport and Premiere Sport Travel.

eBay is another source for Super Bowl 2014 tickets. eBay is currently offering two tickets in the upper endzone corner for $7499.99 or two tickets in the lower endzone for $10,499.99. Anyone contemplating purchasing tickets from eBay should ask enough questions to get comfortable that the tickets being sold are authentic and will be delivered in a timely manner.

StubHub is another source for buying Super Bowl tickets. However, the site does not yet list any tickets for Super Bowl 2014.

      Hi Tips

      WOW is about all I can say. At that money I'd have another car or bike or a pretty good holiday.

      I'm not a football fan but I am a Formula-1 fan and even then I wouldn't pay that sort of money to see one.

      It does seem mental money to pay but maybe I'm just out of the picture and perhaps people are happy to pay this.

      Great job and happy to have learnt something new even when it leaves me saying WOW.

      MJ.
