Everyone knows that if you want to go to the Super Bowl it’s going to cost you a pretty penny, but not until you put everything from tickets, travel, and accommodations do you get the full scope of just how much it might cost- TiqIQ.com has done just that.
On the days that lead up to the Super Bowl a lot of people look at just the astronomical ticket prices, but really that’s just one piece of the pie when it comes to traveling to the big game. There’s airfare, hotel accommodations, and depending on what you do that weekend- entertainment leading up to Sunday. TiqIQ shows us that fans traveling from Denver and Seattle will most likely have to spend at least $2600 for the bare essentials- tickets, travel, and hotels. If you’re an individual who lives in the Greater New York-New Jersey area you could cut your costs considerable, but no host team of the Super Bowl has ever made the big game. It’s gotten to the point of even being called a curse. The closest teams (proximity-wise) to ever due so were the LA Rams at the Rose Bowl in 1980, and 49ers at Stanford Stadium in 1985, but neither were the teams home stadium.
Motivation for fans to buy these tickets might be more than money as well, this could be the only time they see their team win a Super Bowl, and that’s not hyperbole. Of the 32 teams in the NFL, 14 have never won the Super Bowl. Even more bleak is the four teams who have never even been to a Super Bowl. Here’s the list:
Atlanta Falcons, Arizona Cardinals, Buffalo Bills, Carolina Panthers, Cleveland Browns*, Cincinnati Bengals, Detroit Lions*, Houston Texans*, Jacksonville Jaguars*, Minnesota Vikings, Philadelphia Eagles, San Diego Chargers, Seattle Seahawks, and Tennessee Titans (*denotes four teams who haven’t been to the Super Bowl).
For those teams still vying for their first, here’s a fun fact to keep the hope.
