About the Super Bowl LV
When do Super Bowl tickets go on sale?
Tickets generally go on sale right at the beginning of the NFL season, though most people wait until later in the season – or even after the conference championships – to buy their tickets.
How much are tickets?
Face value tickets generally start at $1,000 – and that's for nosebleed seats! That said, the ticket cost varies depending on the matchup, the players, weather, and when you purchase your tickets. Tickets generally drop in the days leading up to the game, but they can change substantially once the matchup is determined. For more information on how much tickets cost and how to find the cheapest tickets, visit our Buying Guide.
When is the best time to buy tickets?
Ticket prices fluctuate throughout the season and as the game nears, so it's smart to keep an eye on prices. Immediately following the AFC and NFC championship games, for example, prices are usually driven higher by fans who want to see their team play. Generally speaking, though, the closer it is to game day, the cheaper tickets become. This means that last-minute tickets are almost always the way to go.
How do Super Bowl zone tickets work?
The Super Bowl is a one-of-a-kind event, and exact seat locations aren’t allocated until a few weeks before the game. Your ticket guarantees a seat within a specific zone. Check out our full blog post about Super Bowl zone tickets for more info and section details.
How will I receive my tickets?
All Super Bowl tickets purchased on Gametime require in-person pickup in Tampa. Once you've purchased your tickets, you’ll receive more details about our convenient pickup location the week before the Super Bowl.
What’s the best way to buy tickets?
Hands down: on a ticket marketplace. The NFL partners with Ticketmaster to sell official tickets, but it's unlikely that's where you're going to get the best deal. Gametime sources tickets from several verified vendors to help you unlock the best deals on the cheapest tickets.
Why should I choose Gametime?
Gametime offers some of the best prices for tickets, paired with some of the lowest service fees—so you know you're getting the best deal possible. And when you purchase our guaranteed tickets, you can rest assured knowing you'll have your tickets in-hand on game day.
When is the Super Bowl?
The event takes place on the first Sunday in February every year. This season, it'll take place on February 7th, 2021.
Who is performing at the half time show?
The NFL announced that The Weeknd would perform at the Super Bowl 55 halftime show.
Which teams will be playing?
The two finalists will be decided by the end of the regular and post season games in early 2021.
Where is the Super Bowl held?
It will take place at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
The location changes each year, though some cities are chosen to host more often than others. Not unlike the Olympics, the NFL chooses the location well in advance, and host cities must make a bid for the privilege. To even be considered, the city typically needs to meet the following requirements:
- Have their own NFL team
- Have a stadium with seating capacity of at least 70,000 seats
- Be in a sufficiently warm climate or offer an indoor arena – so the teams aren’t playing in 3 feet of snow!
- Other requirements include having enough practice space for two teams, providing ample parking space for fans to attend and tailgate, and sufficient infrastructure to support the event in general.
The Greatest Football Game on Earth: A Brief History
Way back in the dark ages (ahem, the 1960s), pro football wasn't dominated by just one league like it is today. Two leagues competed for fans' allegiance—the National Football League (NFL) as the veteran league created in the 1920s, and the American Football League (AFL) as the new up-and-comer. Though the greener AFL wasn't particularly successful at the outset, all of that changed when the two leagues went head-to-head in the first ever cross-league championship game—an event that soon came to be known as the "Super Bowl."
The first Super Bowl was held at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on January 15th, 1967, and tickets were just $12. Despite the downright bargain ticket prices, only 61,000 spectators filed into the 93,000+ seat stadium for the game—that’s right, the first one didn’t even sell out! Fans still got to watch a heck of a matchup, though, with the NFL’s Green Bay Packers crushing the AFL’s Kansas City Chiefs, 35-10.
Despite its lackluster ticket sales, the first game was a success, and the NFL and the AFL would continue their token championship game for several years. Eventually, the two leagues merged, leading to each getting their own conference—the NFC and the AFC—and continuing the Super Bowl tradition under the now-united National Football League.
The Dawn of a Worldwide Phenomenon
Super Bowls came and went annually in this new era, with the AFC and NFC forming legendary rivalries and hosting spectacular games over the years. The high drama of the game became the pinnacle of winter in
It wasn’t long before the event evolved into the biggest sporting event of the year. The Super Bowl today is a massive event that’s televised around the globe—and one that has ticket providers working overtime to keep up with demand!
Traditionally, you’re more likely to find cheap tickets as the game gets closer. Prices are believed to be at their highest right after the conference championships, thanks to increased fan enthusiasm and demand during this time. Of course, the most memorable year in ticket sales happened in 2015, as fans witnessed skyrocketing prices when demand reached levels never seen before.
Super Bowl 2020 Recap?
Another Kansas City Chiefs comeback! The Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers 31-20 in Miami Gardens, Florida. This was the first time these two teams squared off in a Super Bowl, though both have had explosive seasons leading up to the game. This incredible game marked Andy Reid's first career Super Bowl victory, a sweet finish after coming from behind in the Divisional Round and the AFC Championship.
