Super Bowl ticket prices were sky high at one point. For most of us, they remained that way until the end. However, ticket prices did fall to the point where the cheapest available on Stubhub by game time was $750 that someone bought, according to Darren Rovell. The median price, he says, was $2,500 for a ticket. These figures were listed by Stubhub.
"Ticket prices are about 10 percent lower than last year," Stubhub's Joellen Ferrer told CBS Sports. "Which is interesting because you've got Boston, you've got New York and you've got rabid fans. The economy's a little better but I think a couple factors play in: you've got Indianapolis, which is not exactly the easiest city to go into and it's not the destination city that, say, New Orleans or Miami could be."
Next year that could change with New Orleans as the host of the 2013 Super Bowl.
