Super Bowl 2021 ticket prices soared with Buccaneers victory
By Ryan Gaydos, Fox Business
A ticket to Super Bowl 2021 is going to cost a pretty penny.
Data provided to Fox Business from TicketIQ showed that the price of a Super Bowl ticket is already beginning to skyrocket with prices ranging between $11,173 and $75,460 as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are set to be the first team to ever play in a Super Bowl in their home stadium.
The price took off as the Buccaneers were closing out their NFC Championship victory. The cost to get into the game so far was the most expensive since TicketIQ started tracking data in 2010.
There are currently fewer than 400 tickets available on the secondary market. There will be approximately 22,000 fans in attendance.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a news release Friday that the health care workers will be guests of the league to thank them for their service during the coronavirus pandemic. Those vaccincated health care workers raised the number of fans allowed in Raymond James Stadium from 14,500 to 22,000.
“These dedicated health care workers continue to put their own lives at risk to serve others, and we owe them our ongoing gratitude,” Goodell said. “We hope in a small way that this initiative will inspire our country and recognize these true American heroes. This is also an opportunity to promote the importance of vaccination and appropriate health practices, including wearing masks in public settings.”
The NFL said the protocols for fans attending the game outdoors include mandatory mask-wearing, social-distancing, podded seating, touchless concession stands and other security checkpoints.
“Florida is proud to host Super Bowl LV at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa to crown the champion of an unprecedented NFL season,” Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said.
“On behalf of Floridians and football fans across the nation, I’d like to thank the many men and women who worked hard to make this game a reality, especially our frontline health care workers who have worked tirelessly over the past year to keep people safe. I look forward to the positive impact this game will have on the Tampa Bay area, and my family and I can’t wait for the big game.”
Tickets are sure to get more expensive as the game nears.
