The Wall Street Journal reports the NFL is likely to approve a plan that would more than double prices of some Super Bowl tickets, according to league officials.
Club-level seats at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium are likely to cost about $2,600, the league officials said to WSJ. Top tickets to last year’s Super Bowl in New Orleans were $1,250.
In a statement to the Journal, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said the league is considering the plan because it is interested in capturing some of the value it has been yielding to fans and brokers who resell their tickets at a markup. “We are looking to close the gap between the face value of the ticket and the true value of a ticket to what has become the premier sports and entertainment event,” he said.
