It’s that time of year when football fans around the world come together to watch the best teams from the AFC and NFC battle to take home the ultimate prizes––a Super Bowl ring, a trip to Disney World, a ton of money, and bragging rights for a lifetime.
Whether you’re a Green Bay Packers, New England Patriots, Indianapolis Colts, or Seattle Seahawks fan, we’d love for you to make the big game at University of Phoenix Stadium in Arizona this year. That’s why we’ve partnered with our good friends over at sports ticket search engine and marketplace, Rukkus, to get you the best prices, which happen to be around 25% cheaper than StubHub.
Not only do they have unbeatable prices, but Rukkus has also just rolled out their incredible new seating charts, which map tickets down to the row level and include first-person seat views. This way you’ll know exactly what you’re getting before you buy. Rukkus also color codes tickets by price, so it’s easier than ever to quickly find the right set of tickets in your price range. Check out their Super Bowl 2015 seating chart below and grab some tickets while you’re at it!
Wondering if you should buy now or wait? If current Super Bowl ticket prices are a bit steeper than what you’re looking to pay, you may be able to hold out in the hopes that prices will drop as the game approaches. Rukkus has been tracking NFL ticket prices and expects that they will continue to slowly decline over the next couple of weeks. As you can see in the chart below, ticket prices in the Upper 400 Level as well as the Main Level Sideline have been steadily declining over the course of the past month. Rukkus analytics projects that prices for certain zones could drop by as much as 10% each week leading up to the Super Bowl on February 1st. If these trends continue, prices for the Main Level Sideline could make it down to $3,000. End zone seats have been seeing a different trend; for these, prices have been gradually increasing over the last few weeks, but that rise is beginning to level out.
Apart from this drift in price, depending on which teams make it all the way, ticket prices could either hold steady or plummet in the week right before the game. Fans with a lower desire to attend can push prices down dramatically in those final few days. This was the story in 2014 when the Western fan bases of both contending teams were less than enticed to make the journey all the way to frigid New York. Prices plummeted much earlier that year for that reason. A similar situation this year could mean that prices could be collapse by as much as 50% compared to present levels by game day. When demand doesn’t move tickets quickly enough, prices take a nose dive as ticket sellers make a last ditch effort to liquidate. On the other hand, popular NFL teams with extremely loyal fans who are willing to travel could keep prices on the higher side, as we saw in 2012.
If you’re set on making the game no matter what though, the safest thing is always to snag your ticket right away to be sure you don’t miss your chance or have to swallow a hike in price. On the other hand, if you’re more flexible about making the game, you can choose to ride the wave on the volatile secondary market.
Rukkus works with fans to set personalized price alerts and can even set up a price-contingent auto purchase for you which will automatically scoop up tickets for you if prices reach a certain level.
