(Update 1/23) Since TicketIQ has kept track of data in 2010, at no point in the two weeks between the end of the Conference Championship games and the Super Bowl has the average price exceeded $5,000, until now. Currently, the average price for Super Bowl tickets is $5,188.30, which is up 51.18% since last year at this time.

(Update 1/22) In most years, the average price for Super Bowl tickets starts to drop as the game approaches. So far, that has not been the case this year. The average price for Super Bowl tickets is now $4675.99, which is up 22.92% from this time last year. At its current pace, this Super Bowl would be the most expensive game over the past six seasons by 10.9% over Super Bowl XLVI.

The get-in price for the game continues to remain the same. The least expensive available ticket is now $2125, which has not changed since Wednesday.

(Update 1/21)There’s apparently no stopping the prices of Super Bowl tickets on the secondary market this week. Super Bowl tickets currently have an average price of $4,427.92, which is up 12.52% over the average at this time last year. The average price is also up 12.1% since the conclusion of the AFC Championship Game on Sunday night. The get-in price is currently $2,125, which is up from the $1,857 get-in on Sunday night.

At its current average, this Super Bowl would be the most expensive TicketIQ has tracked over the past six seasons. Super Bowl XLVI is the only Super Bowl to finish with an average price above $4,000 since 2010.

(Update 1/20) Prices for Super Bowl tickets continue to rise on the secondary market. The average price for the game is now $4,385.01, which is 10.96% above the average at this time last year. At its current average, the game would still be the second most expensive Super Bowl over the past six seasons.

While the average price keeps the climbing, the get-in price has stayed the same. The get-in price has remained $2100 in the 400’s endzone section. The least expensive ticket available in the 200’s endzone is $2,995 and the cheapest ticket in the 100’s level endzone is $2,548.

(Update 1/19) The Super Bowl matchup is set. The Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots will be playing on February 1 in Arizona. With everything set for Super Bowl XLIX, Super Bowl tickets are already in high demand on the secondary market. Currently, the average price for is $3949.52 with a get-in price of $1857. While that price is 17% above the average price from Super Bowl XLVIII last season at MetLife Stadium, the average is 2.8% below the average of Championship Sunday of last year.

This year’s Super Bowl will be held at University of Phoenix Stadium., the second time the venue has hosted the event. With a listed capacity of 63,400, University of Phoenix Stadium will be the smallest host venue over the past six seasons. It will also leave almost 10,000 fewer tickets available than last year’s Super Bowl, which could lead in increased prices on the secondary market.

...

(Update 1-16) As the Conference Championship Game approaches, a large quantity of Super Bowl tickets has hit the secondary market. The new tickets has increased the average price from $3348.21 to $4066.98, a 21.5% increase. Prices for Super Bowl XLIX are now 21% above the average price for Super Bowl XLVIII last year at MetLife Stadium. As has been the case around past Super Bowls, the average price will peak around the Conference Championship Games, so prices could continue to go up through the weekend. The get-in price, though, has remained stable at $1732.

...

(Update 1-13) The Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs ended up being one of the most exciting football weekends in recent memory. With eight teams narrowed down to four, the Conference Championship weekend is now upon us. That also leaves us just three weeks away from the Super Bowl.

When the New England Patriots defeated the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday afternoon, they immediately clinched a home game for the AFC Championship Game. As the No. 1 seed in the conference, it did not matter the result of the Indianapolis Colts-Denver Broncos game on Sunday. The Colts ended up defeating the Broncos and will travel to Foxborough on Sunday to play New England. The current average price for the AFC Championship Game is $595.67 with a get-in price of $240.

Seattle had a similar situation when they defeated the Carolina Panthers. The NFC Championship Game was guaranteed to be played at CenturyLink Field regardless of the result between the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys. Green Bay won and will set up a rematch of the opening game of the 2014-15 season. The current average price for the NFC Championship Game is $855.15 and a get-in price of $433.

Below are the Super Bowl odds for the four remaining teams, per Bovada:

  • Seattle Seahawks - 5/4

(Updated 1-4) Four teams in each conference remain as the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs approaches. Each of the top two seeds in the NFC and AFC will host games against a winner from last weekend’s Wild Card Round. For the early Saturday game, the Baltimore Ravens will face the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium. On Saturday night, the Seattle Seahawks will host the Carolina Panthers. The early Sunday afternoon game will feature the Dallas Cowboys heading to Lambeau Field to play the Green Bay Packers, and the late Sunday afternoon game will feature Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.

...
(Updated 12-22) The Cowboys were the only team in Week 16 to clinch a home playoff game, while others clinched a general playoff spot. The Seahawks are likely the be the NFC West champion and the No. 1 seed in the conference, but they still must win against the St. Louis Rams to clinch that spot. Two playoff spots have not been clinched, the final Wild Card spot in the AFC, which could go to a number of teams from the Chargers, Chiefs, Ravens and Texans. The other is the NFC South champion, which will be the fourth seed in the NFC. That seed will be decided by the Falcons-Panthers game on Sunday afternoon.

As the NFL regular season winds down, the journey to the Super Bowl is heating up. Super Bowl XLIX will be played at University of Phoenix Stadium, home of the Arizona Cardinals. For a stretch of time the Cardinals looked like a Super Bowl favorite, though their play has dropped off slightly over the past few weeks without Carson Palmer. Heading into Week 15 of the regular season, the Cardinals are still the favorite for the No. 1 seed in the NFC for the playoffs. That would gave them home field advantage throughout and, if they advanced far enough, would make them the first team to play in a Super Bowl at their home stadium.

AFC Standings through Week 14:

  1. New England Patriots (10-3)
  2. Denver Broncos (10-3)
  3. Indianapolis Colts (9-4)
  4. Cincinnati Bengals (8-4-1)
  5. Pittsburgh Steelers (8-5)
  6. San Diego Chargers (8-5)

NFC Standings through Week 14:

  1. Arizona Cardinals (10-3)
  2. Green Bay Packers (10-3)
  3. Philadelphia Eagles (9-4)
  4. Atlanta Falcons (5-8)
  5. Seattle Seahawks (9-4)
  6. Detroit Lions (9-4)

Though the Cardinals are currently the top seed in the NFC, they are not among the top teams in terms of Super Bowl odds for the sportsbooks in Las Vegas. The Cardinals have the ninth highest odds to win the Super Bowl at 25/1. The Green Bay Packers, currently the No. 2 seed in the NFC are the favorites at 13/4.

On the secondary market, this Super Bowl would currently be the fourth most expensive over the past six seasons. Over the past five seasons, both location and the matchup have played a significant role in Super Bowl ticket prices.

For Super Bowl XVLIII, the matchup between Denver’s best offense in the league against Seattle’s best defense in the league was intriguing, but the prospect of an outdoor game in the Northeast kept ticket prices from skyrocketing on the secondary market. The most expensive Super Bowl on the secondary market was Super Bowl XLVI between the New York Giants and New England Patriots $4214.53, the only Super Bowl since 2010 with an average price above $4000. The game was indoors at Indianapolis’ Lucas Oil Stadium and the game had a premier matchup for a rematch of Super Bowl XLII when the Giants defeated the Patriots and stopped New England’s undefeated season.
