Tickets for Super Bowl or World Cup. Which is cheaper?
Super Bowl LVII between the Chiefs and Eagles will take place on Sunday, February 12. But is the Super Bowl cheaper than a ticket to the FIFA World Cup?
The Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles are set to face off in Super Bowl LVII on Sunday, February 12 at the State Farm in Glendale, Arizona. Both teams get ready to battle it out for the Vince Lombardi Trophy and everything that goes with it.
Super Bowl vs World Cup: the ticket debate
The climax to the NFL season is huge, and millions of people around the United States and beyond will tune in for the final annual event, the Super Bowl, as well as the supporting entertainment including the halftime show line-up.
However, whether it is the biggest sporting final of the year is one that many would debate, as some soccer fans would argue the FIFA World Cups are bigger, better events. Since the soccer World Cups only take place every four years, there is only really a comparison during the one year both events occur.
More Super Bowl stuff:
Despite the millions that will tune in via television, radio, or online streaming service to watch both clashes, thousands of fans - and a number of corporate taggers - will be fortunate enough to be inside the stadium to see it live. And one of the many debates over this comparison is regarding the price of the tickets. So is it cheaper to buy a ticket to the World Cup or Super Bowl?
How much does a Super Bowl LVII ticket cost?
The official ticket marketplace of the NFL, Ticketmaster, has listed Super Bowl LVII tickets ranging from $6,000 all the way up to $27,500 for seats close up to the show.
There are lower tickets that can be found as resell for the price of $4,886 per ticket.
How much does a ticket for the FIFA World Cup cost?
Let’s use last year’s Qatar World Cup, which took place from Nov. 20 to Dec. 18, as an example. Tickets to the 2022 FIFA World Cup ranged from 40 riyals ($11) to 5,850 riyals ($1,607), and were available to both residents of Qatar and international fans. That’s significantly less than it cost to go to Super Bowl LVI, and Super Bowl LVII.
So, that seems to conclude the debate. A ticket for the FIFA World Cup is much cheaper than that for Super Bowl.
