THE MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS REGARDING TICKETS FOR THE BRONCOS-PANTHERS NFL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME:

1) What is it costing this year to obtain a ticket to the Super Bowl 50? What are the average prices and the general range of prices available to consumers?

As of noon on January 25th (EST), the average ticket price for the game is roughly $6,300. The "get in" price of tickets is $3,400 (meaning the lowest available price) and the range is between $3,400 and $20,000. The median ticket price is roughly $5,250.

2) How can I be assured that the tickets I buy for the game are real and will successfully get me entry to the game on February 7?

Customers should only buy Super Bowl tickets from known and reliable sources – namely from the venue box office directly, from authorized ticket sellers, or from a reputable online secondary marketplace, like TicketNetwork. They should also ensure that the ticket purchase comes backed by a guarantee, such as TicketNetwork's special Super Bowl policy, where if an issue arises on gaining entry to the venue, it's the greater of a 200% refund on all tickets purchased or replacing  their Super Bowl ticket orders at market value with equal or better seats [which TicketNetwork will procure], to ensure access to the game and a fabulous experience.

Additional handy tips for purchasing Super Bowl tickets include avoid buying from unknown individuals online or in front of the venue, especially cash transactions.  In order to provide an additional layer of protection, customers should use a credit card (rather than debit cards) and examine tickets to ensure they do not appear to have been photocopied or otherwise fraudulent.

3) What is the total inventory of tickets available?

As of 1:30 pm on January 25th (EST), there is currently more than $15 million in inventory available in tickets to the game.

4) Geographically, where are the majority of ticket sales for Super Bowl 50 coming from?
