Super Bowl Ticket Trends 2014
The average amount of money fans are spending on Super Bowl 2014 tickets is up 17% compared to last year, with 50% of Super Bowl tickets purchased by New York and New Jersey residents. When are most people buying Super Bowl tickets? In 2013, most fans purchased tickets an average of 21 days before Super Bowl XLVII. Of the remaining Super Bowl tickets sold, 30% were purchased Super Bowl Week and 1.5% Super Bowl Weekend. Last year, right after the AFC and NFC Conference Championship games, 49ers and Ravens fans paid an average of $4,147; average ticket prices dropped the Monday (6 days) before the Super Bowl to $3,426 and to $2,557 the Friday (2 days) before Super Bowl Sunday on the resale market. Can you imagine what Super Bowl XLVIII tickets would have looked like had the two home-town rivals Jets and Giants been playing Feb 2?

Curious to know who’s searching for Super Bowl 2014 tickets? Football may be an American sport, but people all over the world are on the hunt for Super Bowl tickets. NFL fans from 32 countries have viewed Super Bowl tickets this year, with 85% of the total pool from the US. Can you guess where the highest concentration of Super Bowl ticket hunters is in 2014? Yep, 26% are viewing from the New York/New Jersey area, followed by an optimistic Seahawks nation at 12% in Washington and Oregon. Of the rest, 11% from California and 5% from Patriots fans in Massachusetts, Connecticut and New Hampshire combined. Broncos fans seem unsure of Manning leading the team to Super Bowl XLVIII, with only 1.5% of Super Bowl ticket searches coming from Colorado. Within California, it comes as no surprise that 42% of fans looking at Super Bowl tickets are from Los Angeles (so why don’t we have a team yet?!) and 23% are from the San Francisco area, hoping the Niners will be there waiting for them at MetLife Stadium.
When To Buy Super Bowl Tickets 2014
Over the next couple of days the Super Bowl market should be calm, at an average of $3,847 per ticket. After each playoff round 2014 Super Bowl tickets have escalated in price. Usually the days immediately following the third round of playoffs (once the two Super Bowl teams are determined), tickets rise to their highest price and then gradually drop off. The same will likely happen again this year.
The possibility of snow is great for locals who are willing to stick it out to save some money. If the cold turns to freezing the week of the game, prices could fall. Still, playing the waiting game is a major gamble — the selection will be extremely limited (with far fewer tickets to go around you may have to sit alone) and distribution of tickets (shipping and delivery) could be impacted by weather conditions or other circumstances. So to reiterate: don’t wait too long! The days before the Super Bowl (Wednesday, Thursday, Friday) might offer the cheapest ticket prices, but between flights, hotel bookings and a possible snowstorm, it’s better to play it safe purchasing Super Bowl tickets this year — especially considering many ticket buyers are located across the country.
How To Get Super Bowl Tickets 2014
We saw three cold-weather markets — Philadelphia, Green Bay and Cincinnati struggle to sell their tickets in the Wild Card round because of the cold, but don’t expect the same thing to happen for Super Bowl XLVIII. Every year, unless you’re a lucky Super Bowl raffle winner, most teams’ fans have to buy Super Bowl tickets on the secondary market.

Super Bowl Tickets 2014 Seating Chart at MetLife Stadium
To start, there were around 80,000 Super Bowl tickets, but after the lottery and distribution to NFL teams and sponsors, fewer than 3,000 tickets remain. If you’re searching for Super Bowl tickets, you probably already know where to find the cheapest seats and what sections have the best view, but for those who don’t, let’s break down MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford. Upper sections (300 level) are lowest-priced and mid-level sections (200 level end zone and corners) offer a premier view without breaking the bank. 100 level seats will put you closest to the action and facilities, but you’ll be paying for it. The priciest, most sought-after seats in the house, are the suites and club lounges, which will provide covered areas, premium amenities and a luxury experience. Behind both end zones, the very final rows (36 to 45) in sections 121-131, 101-106, and 146-149 are situated under an overhang that covers the seats. You may catch angry stares from jealous onlookers getting doused in snow, but that’s a small sacrifice to pay for feeling oh so dry.
Super Bowl 2014 Gameday at MetLife Stadium
If you’re one of the many die-hard fans in the nation, you would probably give anything to see your team duke it out on the field to hoist the Vince Lombardi trophy up high, no matter distance or weather, and the NFL committee knows this. Looking out for fan safety, the NFL has restricted walking to the Super Bowl in addition to banning tailgating in the parking lot due to cold conditions. Tailgating is an integral part of the football tradition, and you may do so in your car and immediately surrounding it; hey, it’s better than missing the game due to frostbite. An extremely limited number of parking passes (priced in the hundreds) are available, so get them quick. With fewer than 13,000 spaces available to spectators, Super Bowl XLVIII CEO Al Kelly anticipates between 70-80% of all ticket holders will get to the game via public transportation or one of the many shuttle bus opportunities. This year isn’t heralded the “first mass transit Super Bowl” for nothing. Why waste time with traffic or worry about parking? Taking the train is a suitable (and warm) alternative, or pay a reasonable sum for an NFL “Fan Express” shuttle buses (picking up in and around New York and New Jersey) and party with fans on the way there. Each hotel in the area should provide shuttles to pick-up locations. NJ Transit intends to offer a Super Pass that will carry you across all trains, light rail and bus services for only $50, a steal especially if you plan on filling your day with other activities.
Super Bowl 2014 Events and Attractions In New York and New Jersey
Despite the weather and the fact that MetLife is an open stadium, there are certainly major perks to making the trip out to New York and New Jersey, it being one of the most vivacious locations in the nation to visit — and perhaps a more stimulating surrounding urban center than New Orleans last year. The great thing about both New York and New Jersey co-hosting SB 2014, is there will be ample night life to energize you before the game and celebrate your team’s victory (or mourn your team’s loss) afterwards. So, even if the Jersey Meadowlands are covered under a blanket of snow, you’re just one train hop away from the Big Apple with attractions the whole family can enjoy.

Super Bowl 2014 Weather
The fact Super Bowl 2014’s logo is fixed with a snowflake in the middle should give you some inclination of what the weather will be like. In fitting coincidence, the Super Bowl is scheduled on Groundhog Day for the first time ever. Unfortunately Punxatawney Phil can’t come out sooner to predict the weather forecast in East Rutherford on February 2, but Farmer’s Almanac did predict something along the lines of a “Storm Bowl” or “Ice Bowl,” presaging a freezing and atypically cold winter season in the Northeast this year. Still, if Peyton Manning can prove the cold is no hindrance in his ability, if Colin Kaepernick can wear short sleeves up in Green Bay, and if Drew Brees and company were willing to travel away from the comfort of the Superdome, then so can you!
Nike may have the players covered, but once you secure your Super Bowl tickets, the NFL has your back the rest of the way, even in the coldest conditions: free gloves, hand warmers, ear muffs, lip balm, tissues and more will be provided with each seat. MetLife is also equipped with snow-melting machines that can melt 600 tons of snow in an hour. Never afraid to voice his opinions, Shutdown Corner Richard Sherman of the Seahawks wrote an article called “The Cold Truth” about potentially playing in a snowy Super Bowl game. The media may be inflating the cold-weather drama: AccuWeather’s own willitsnow.com (specifically made for Super Bowl 2014) predicted a high of 35 degrees and a low of 25 degrees with a 35% chance of snowfall. So yes, dress warm, but for now the forecast hardly registers numbers low enough to deem this year the “Blizzard Bowl.”
