Superbowl Tickets $1000 Less Than Last Year

Superbowl tickets on StubHub:

TAMPA, FL -- Sean Pate is with StubHub, an online ticket marketplace where people list tickets for sale. He says tickets for the Super Bowl are selling for about a thousand dollars less on average than they did a year ago.

"Last year, when it was the Giants versus the Patriots, tickets went for about $3,500. This year, however, with the recession and the opponents that are in the game, tickets have been going for about $2,400 on an average. That means on the low end you're finding tickets going for about $1,400 and they're going to be coming down even farther as the weekend goes on," said Pate.

Pate says there are more than 2,000 Super Bowl tickets for sale on StubHub's web site, so there's a lot of competition among sellers to get rid of those tickets by Sunday (see chart above, tickets start at $1545).
