Ranking the Average Ticket Price of Every Super Bowl Since 1966

When you realize that 111 million people were watching Super Bowl XLV last year and that the Dallas Cowboys' stadium seats only 80,000 and then you figure that maybe you can get another 20,000-30,000 fans to come in for temporary seating or standing-room-only, you realize what a small percentage of football fans actually attend a Super Bowl game.

Due to the rules of supply and demand, the prices for Super Bowl tickets continue to go higher and higher.

I was lucky enough to attend two Super Bowl games, both involving my only team, the Buffalo Bills. The first game was Super Bowl XXV in Tampa Bay and that ticket was literally purchased less than ten minutes before kickoff for $400.00. Two years later I watched the Bills play again, this time against the Dallas Cowboys in Pasadena (where I was living), and the price was less than half what I paid earlier.

Fast forward 20 years, and the prices are nowhere close to what I paid back then. Today we're going to rank the average cost of Super Bowl tickets since 1966. Should make for an interesting read to see how inflation and the popularity of the NFL and the Super Bowl spectacle have impacted ticket prices.

Our source for the average face value of Super Bowl ticket prices over the years is this article from Dallas News.com. Photos used in the presentation originated from superbowlstubs.com.
