So we're down to four. Patriots, Chargers, Packers and Giants. With the championship games coming up, let's explore the business of the Super Bowl ticketing.
Here are my projections for average secondary ticket prices depending on matchup. Before I go any further, I have to just qualify what I'm telling you here. The truth is there is no perfect way to determine average Super Bowl ticket price, but because I appreciate the sheer volume of business StubHub does, I'm going to use their averages in the past as a guide.
These are the average prices for a Super Bowl ticket sold on the secondary market on StubHub over the last five years:
Average for Super Bowl XLI (2/4/07 Colts-Bears): $4,004
Average for Super Bowl XL (2/5/06 Steelers-Seahawks): $3,009
Average for Super Bowl XXXIX (2/6/05 Eagles-Patriots): $2,659
Average for Super Bowl XXXVIII (2/1/04 Patriots-Panthers): $2,290
Average for Super Bowl XXXVII (1/26/03 Raiders-Buccaneers): $2,767
So here are my current projections, noting that the average ticket on the site right now is selling for $4,383.
