The Pigskin Showdown. The Big Game. The most important event in pro football. That’s right, we are talking about the Super Bowl. Another season of rivalries, upsets, shutouts and close games has come and gone, culminating in perhaps the most anticipated sporting event of the year.
This year played host to the 51st Super Bowl at NRG Stadium. Over 70,000 football fans paid a pretty penny to watch the Patriots take on the Falcons in Houston, Texas. Attendees seeking out the top-of-the-line experience at the Big Game poured into the stadium’s 196 suites on Sunday. Unless they were as lucky as this woman, who scored free suite tickets by simply asking Roger Goodell, (that NFL commissioner guy) they probably had to keep an eye on the market.
We’ve broken down the Super Bowl 51 suite market, from the start of the season to the final moments before the game. See how suite prices this year stacked up to previous Super Bowls, as well as the average ticket price for those last-minute purchasers. Also note the unique manner in which NRG Stadium allowed suite owners access to suites for the Big Game.
One of the the most interesting factors to point out about this season is how drastically the market value of suites dropped as soon as America’s team, the Cowboys, were no longer Super Bowl prospects.
A lot of variables are involved in the cost of Super Bowl suites, from the host stadium, to the teams involved, to the accessibility of suites on the market. If we’ve learned anything from tracking the Super Bowl suite market, it’s that it can be fairly unstable and unpredictable.
