We all know buying tickets to the Super Bowl is the equivalent of buying a car. Those who are willing to dish out the money or have the money just lying around end up getting the golden ticket.

Since Tampa is hosting the Super Bowl at Raymond James Stadium this year and our Bucs are the first team in NFL history to play in their home field, I thought it would be fun to revisit the progression of the Super Bowl ticket prices. Tampa has only hosted the Super Bowl four times, the first time was back in 1984 and recently in 2009. Man, do I wish I can pay these prices today:

  • 1984: Super Bowl XVIII
    • $60 average per ticket
  • 1991: Super Bowl XXV
    • $150 average per ticket
  • 2001: Super Bowl XXXV
    • $325 average per ticket
  • 2009: Super Bowl XLIII
    • $800 average per ticker

Honestly, I would pay at most $1,000 but the prices in recent years is outrages.

  • 2021: Super Bowl LV
    • $25,000 average per ticket

Isn’t that crazy? It’s either I send my kid to college or go to one Super Bowl game. Although it’s tempting to see the Bucs in Tampa, it is a no for me. If you have the money, GO! But if you are like me, I’ll be ordering takeout from my local bar and watching the game from my living room with my family. Heck, I might splurge and get a new TV.
