Super Bowl Tickets On Track To Break Record, With Miami The ‘Best City In America’ To Host The Game

Ticket prices for next week’s Super Bowl at Hard Rock Stadium are on track to break a record.

As of this afternoon, the average resale ticket price is $7,622, according to data from Seatgeek. That is higher than any other Super Bowl was tracking at the same time before kickoff.

The most expensive Super Bowl in history was two years ago in Minnesota, when the Eagles defeated the Patriots.

One reason for the high prices is likely the fact that the event is being held in Miami. After years of being held in “terrible cities,” the game is returning to what Liv Nightclub owner David Grutman calls the “best city in America” to host such an event.

With the game being held in Miami, prices were already higher on average than all of the most expensive Super Bowls in history, even before the championship teams were determined last week.

Prices still surged after championship games were won by Kansas City and San Francisco last week.

Kansas City is by far the top metro areas where buyers are shopping for resale tickets, while San Francisco doesn’t even rank in the top five, Seatgeek says.

It’s known as world class or some people in Miami are known to call the city, “World Class?”

I care to differ uneducated people, low paying jobs, and over priced real estate is not the best city in America.

If we’re funding these events with our tax dollars, then we must make a return on investment. Also, why not expand the Metrorail to Dolphin Stadium? Do you realize that people can only get there by car, ride share, bus? With a train, it would be an economic powerhouse. And it would be good for when there are concerts, Dolphins games, WWE, and whatever else will take place there. The county really needs to be a lot more strategic here.

I know the 113 dolphins fans that use the stadium eight times per year and come from 113 unique destinations would really enjoy that. I think it would come out to about $18 million per ride.

Remind us again why the Cities of Miami and Miami Beach are giving millions in *cash* plus free services to the NFL? Why is the County giving millions as well?

Because we get millions more back in sales and hotel tax plus free publicity.

Kind of BS…that is like the worse use of leverage in negotiation in the history of mankind, or close. So if you are beautiful girl (let’s say you think you are a beautiful girl), why would you, with that view of yourself, pay a guy to take you to dinner even if the dinner ends up costing you more than you paid him? Would she say, well, it was the return…I netted out ahead. Seriously, if Miami thinks it is so unique and great, shouldn’t the NFL pay Miami to come to town? Or at least if they don’t pay to come to town they don’t ask for any money? That sounds about right to me. Let’s see how long the NFL would stay away from all sun belt cities if they all said no thanks, keep holding it in Philly in the middle of winter and see who caves first. What a loser city this is…just begging for attention always.

Saturday night I went to Bayfront Park and the LIV display and exhibition was amazing. Sadly, it was empty. I guess Miamians are too busy hanging out in Doral or Dolphin Mall.

Same on South Beach. I went to the “Super Bowl Experience” and it was not crowded at all. Lots of hype. Hope we are proven wrong and it’s packed this weekend.

Is really worth it for the metrorail to expand to the stadium, the area isn’t that dense and anwaysy. Go KC

Of course it’s not worth it. Metrorail should be extended to the densest areas with the highest ridership potential first.

Thousands of people from Broward work and commute to Miami Dade every day. If I remember correctly the most recent plan is to extend Metrorail to the County line. It would provide a quick efficient way for Broward residents who would park and ride.

Miami-Dade does not have a prerogative to subsidize Broward riders who pay taxes to another county. If you want to live in Broward, fine, it’s a free country. But don’t expect handouts for your commute. And paying the ride fare is not enough btw… all mass transit is heavily subsidized.

The line should be built to the beach first, since that is the shortest and densest place.

with that mentality you wont ever remove the thousands of cars commuting between broward and dade everyday which is affecting traffic more in dade than in broward! thats the reason why this extension makes sense..i guess you’ve never driven on I-95 during rush hour

That’s what tri rail is for. and it’s a regional organization paid for by all of us.

Of course not. It should go to the beach and midtown long before some frivolous suburb like Miami Gardens or South Dade.

Think how much Miami is losing from not having a large world class destination resort not built in the Brightline train station area just for this Super Bowl weekend. The monopoly Hard Rock is probably sold out and their rooms are at record prices. Bring a destination resort casino to downtown Miami and let Miami win for once!
