Just heard the tickets are going for $6,500.

 

Who in the name of Heaven is willing to pay that kind of money for that?

Most real fans can't afford those tickets, it is a corporate crowd.

@Annabellethecat.  That's the cheap tickets.  I've heard the better seats are close to $100,000.  I don't understand where so many people get so much money for such a frivolous purpose.

After making the same comment:

 

Somebody just today said to me that that's the average price.  That some people paid 40K for tickets.

 

Also, that the least expensive is approx. $1,400.

 

Now, don't quote me on this.

Wow!   $100K.  Oh my gosh...........

 

Well, I guess that people from all around the world are attending, too, who have more than enough $$$$.

It is a corporate thang. Sadly. Some of the KC Royals baseball players are going to the game -- but say they were given tickets by KC Chiefs organization. Go Chiefs. I do remember, as a kid, Chiefs winning 50 years ago. My brother and dad stood the entire game. My dad's reason to buy color TV.

What kills me is the big wigs don't pay a penny.

 

The more money you have the less you pay for anything.

BIL and Nephew went to super bowl LII in Minnesota. Their tickets were about $4000 or $5000 each. They are big fans and it was worth it to them.

I remember Lorenzo Cain (now playing baseball with Milwaukee Brewers) said, as a KC Royal, the rich just keep getting richer. He said he wasn't referring to his own life, but what he's seen as he's been around people with money.

Who is willing to pay? Some are long-time fans. It's not frivolous to them, although it may be to you and me.
