Super Bowl Tickets on Secondary Market at 'NY Inflation Prices'

The Super Bowl this year will be played at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., which is just across the Hudson River from NYC. It is home of the New York Giants and New York Jets.

The tickets that are officially being put out by the NFL will include 40 percent of tickets priced under $1,000. The rest are priced at either $1,200 or $1,500 -- and club seats (read: indoors! heated!) are $2,500, which is twice as much as suites at last year's game in New Orleans, says Newday. After that the free market takes over.

ND says that if you can't get tickets directly from the NFL but:
[Y]ou are still looking for tickets, you're headed to the secondary market. On websites such as eBay, StubHub or aggregator search engines such as TiqIq, tickets are available at significantly inflated prices.
StubHub spokesman Glenn Lehrman said ticket prices there were trending about 20 percent higher than recent Super Bowls during the weeks leading up to the game, which he attributes to -- what else -- the hype surrounding the game being played here.
"I'd call this the New York inflation prices,'' he said. 
So it's understandable why fans who won a ticket lottery might have been tempted to sell their tickets to make a fast profit in past years. The going rate this year for those $500 face-value upper-deck tickets on those websites is between $2,000 and $3,000.
The league also runs its own secondary resale market, the NFL Ticket Exchange, but don't expect any discounts there. The cheapest ticket prices have been at least $2,500.
On StubHub, individual Super Bowl tickets start at $2,493.90 and go as high as $26, 626.25. Suites are being sold between $575,005.40 to $842,520.00.
