20,000 dollars to watch Real Madrid - Barcelona in Miami. Yes. You read that right. 20,000 dollars (more than 18,000 euros).

What's not explained is how the sellers are going to get their hands on the tickets, but it's likely they are hoping to pick them up in the public sale and then sell them on at what could be an eye-watering profit.
Real Madrid - Barcelona organised by Relevant Sports
The aim of the organisers of the event, Relevant Sports, was to make the most 'affordable' ticket cost $200, with a possibility of reducing that further to $150.

However if the already existing resale offer is an accurate prediction of what fans would be willing to pay for the tickets the organisers may feel they are leaving a lot of money on the table, and look to reprice.
