Superbowl 2013 tickets question...


How early do you need to start looking for superbowl tickets and packages for 2013? What would be our best bet on finding good package deals?

For past SB goers, in your expierence, what has been the best way to go about getting tickets? What are the odds of getting tickets through the NFL raffle?

You can START this time next year, but I don't think there will be many deals at that time...there should be some info around that time, at least.

Have you been before? Should we book our own hotel and get tickets separate or get packages?

face value alone was $800 a piece from the Saints ticket office


we sat on the last row in the endzone of Sun Life stadium for reference.


the cheapest scalped tickets were going for 1500-1600 a piece

I went last year, as well. We waited until a week before the game and bought them from a ticket broker in West Palm. Got 2 for $1200 each. If you have the nerve to wait longer they will get cheaper. I will definitely wait longer next time. BOOK HOTELS NOW if you can get a good rate.

I called and talked to the reservations folks and they said you cant book until the rates are out for that time period which wont be until 2012.

Only about 1,000 tickets are allocated through the NFL's random drawing. Not very good odds of being 1 of the 500 winners.
