Tickets to next Sunday’s Super Bowl between the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos are getting cheaper–prices keep plummeting as the weather becomes more unpredictable.
On Friday, nine days before the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks meet at MetLife Stadium, the cheapest ticket to buy for the Super Bowl was $1,779 on NFL Ticket Exchange, the league’s official resale site. That’s $409 cheaper than it was on the site with this many days left last year and $809 cheaper than the year before.
Since the conference championship games ended, ticket prices have steadily plummeted. The get-in price on the NFL Ticket Exchange was $2,700 on Monday.
The sellers are reportedly “panicking” according to ticket brokers because the forecast “is far from definite” and fans who pay top dollar for the tickets “want to be comfortable in their seats. Even if it’s not a blizzard, sitting outside in very cold weather is a deterrent.”
The distance to the game is also a factor as both teams–and most of their fans–will have to “travel more than 4,000 miles combined to get to their Super Bowl destination.”
