The cheapest ticket on resale markets for the Patriots-Eagles Super Bowl is $4,370, according to TicketIQ. If Super Bowl LII ticket prices hold at Monday morning’s level, they would set a new record.
They would shatter prices for the 2016 Broncos-Panthers Super Bowl 50 matchup. (TicketIQ began tracking prices in 2010.)
The cheapest ticket is actually lower than it was on Sunday.
Super Bowl LII will be played at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on February 4, and prices fell $500 after the Minnesota Vikings lost to the Eagles in the NFC Championship game.

The possibility of the Vikings playing drove prices up as the team advanced through the playoffs.
The average resale ticket price was “just” $5,976 for last year’s Atlanta Falcons vs. New England Patriots Super Bowl LI matchup.
The huge increase in resale price is because there aren’t as many tickets available on secondary markets as there have been in past years, explained TicketIQ founder Jesse Lawrence.
Secondary markets used to be the primary way fans bought tickets, but the NFL now sells the bulk of Super Bowl tickets directly through its own ticket broker.MORE NEWS: Upper Merion School District: Teachers, Staff Must Be Vaccinated Against COVID-19 Or Routinely Get Tested
