Host Team, San Francisco 49ers Season Ticket Holders – The host team gets 5% of the ticket to ruffle amongst its season ticket holders.
Rest of the League Ticket Holders – The rest of the NFL teams each get 1.2 of the tickets to draw amongst each of their season ticket holders.
Office Ticket Box Office – If you are not a season ticket holder or failed to win a ticket during the lotteries, you can try buying a Super Bowl 2016 ticket at the box office. 25.5% of the remaining tickets are sold at official box offices around the country and online. Bu it is unlikely you will get the chance to purchase one at official price.
The Secondary Market – Some of those remaining tickets will be sold and re-sold many times online. This is called the secondary market, and some of those re-sellers are official while others are not. Secondary market Super Bowl ticket prices will be slightly higher, but they can increase rapidly as demand for them increase and the re-sellers begin to run out of tickets. Many speculators buy early to re-sell at a higher prize, this causes prices to change daily and even hourly, so buy yours in time to afford the best prize possible.
*The NFL does not sell Super Bowl tickets to travel agencies.
Types of Tickets
There are several categories to buy a Super Bowl ticket, depending on the view and closeness to the field.
Where Will Super Bowl 2016 Be?
Super Bowl 50 will be played at Levi´s Stadium, home of the San Francisco 49ers, located in sunny California. The Levi´s Stadium opened in 2014 and it was practically designed for this one day event.
The last time California hosted the Super Bowl was back in 2003, in San Diego. At that time the Buccaneers beat the Oakland Raiders.
Curious Fact: No team has ever played the Super Bowl on its home stadium, and the 49ers will probably join that club with future odds of winning the Super Bowl at 25-1 odds.
Very rarely is the Super Bowl held on a state where there is winter. Super Bowl 2015 was the only one that was held on
When Will the Super Bowl Date Be?
The date of the Super Bowl is always at the end of the first week of February.
Super Bowl 2016 date will be February 7th. It is played on a Sunday which has commonly been nicknamed Super Sunday, almost a national holiday.
