It's a tradition like no other -- paying huge fees to see two of the NFL's best teams battle it out on mutual grass -- but this year's tickets are projected to exceed the $5,000 average, making 2015's game the most expensive Super Bowl in at least the last six seasons.
The Super Bowl is the most anticipated and covered sport and media event in the world. While some games live up to the hype, many don't. Through the mediocrity and glory alike, though, high-ticket prices have been a constant.
If you want to get tickets to see the big game up "close" and personal, you need a little bit of luck and a whole lot of patience. But hey, the Harbough brothers did the same thing, and look where they'll be on Super Bowl Sunday.
As ticket prices to Super Bowl XLVI continue to hover around $3,500 on average, one has to wonder what is the cost that fans are willing to bear to see their team play for a shot at the Lombardi Trophy.
