Nine thousand of the premium seats at Super Bowl XLVIII, which will be held on Feb. 2, 2014 at MetLife Stadium, will be around $2,600 a piece.
Seats of this caliber were less than half this price for last season's New Orleans Super Bowl.
"We are looking to close the gap between the face value of the ticket and its true value as reflected on the secondary market," NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said Tuesday. "The uniqueness of the Super Bowl in the New York/New Jersey is also driving unprecedented demand and buzz."
Seats in the next tier will apparently go for around $1,500, and McCarthy claims that about 40 percent of general admission seats will be under $1,000. There is one upside, Sports Illustrated reports, and that is that the cheapest seats will go down from $650 to $500.
According to The Associated Press, the maximum capacity of MetLife Stadium is 82,000 but about 5,000 of those seats will be reserved for media, cameras, and security.
