The Atlanta Business Chronicle reports that TicketIQ founder Jesse Lawrence is calling the Patriots-Rams match-up a “worst-case” demand scenario, because this will be the Patriots fifth Super Bowl appearance this decade and the Rams lack a fan base willing to travel for the game.
Despite the drop off in price, the cheapest ticket on Ticketmaster on Wednesday was for $2,795. The best seats were priced at $30,000.
Here is what two weeks ago looked like according to ticketiQ.
If the last two Super Bowls are any indication, fans wanting to get the best price should exercise patience. In 2017, when the Patriots beat the Atlanta Falcons in overtime at Houston, tickets were trending at $6,045 and 1,231 tickets remained on the secondary market on Championship Sunday, according to TicketIQ.com. The average asking price dipped to its lowest, $3,764, five days before the game, marking a 37% drop. The game-day average was $5,449.
The trend was similar last year, when the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Patriots in Minneapolis. On Championship Sunday, the average asking price was $9,207 and 934 tickets remained, but the average asking price dropped to as low as $5,339 six days before kickoff, a 42% drop. The game-day price was $4,081.
