Super Bowl ticket scalpers hike prices
Even the nosebleed seats will run at least $2,400 for fans who want to attend Sunday's game in Dallas.
Tickets for Sunday's Super Bowl game in Dallas are already twice as expensive as they were last year in Miami, reports Wall St. Cheat Sheet.
If you want to attend the game, expect to pay at least $2,400 for nosebleed seats, including fees. The really primo seats are averaging $8,000 each, according to the FanSnap ticket search engine.
The most expensive ticket available costs $23,729, reports CBSMoneyWatch.com. It's on the 45-yard line, nine rows up, and was selling on the NFL Ticket Exchange secondary market. About 93,000 fans are expected to fill Cowboys Stadium on Sunday to watch the Pittsburgh Steelers take on the Green Bay Packers.
For those who really want to experience the event but can't afford to get in, the NFL is selling $200 tickets to sit on the grass and watch the game on huge television screens.

How about skipping the game entirely and spending money on Playboy? Tomorrow night brings the Playboy Super Bowl Party, and you can get in for a cool $1,250, CBSMoneyWatch reports.
what a joke.....if someone pays that much to go watch a football game, more power to them but not me. Jerry Jones has had a rough week with the 2 anti-cowboy teams and the horrible weather. Couldn't happen to a better owner!!
As far as the moron adding political elitism to this, get a grip. Most of the folks that are celebs and show up with all the bling can't even spell Republican.
mikes1 your WRONG -"Arlington is in Dallas you dummy. It is a suburb of Dallas Fort Worth. Gees some people kids."
Arlington is NOT even in the same county as Dallas. Dallas is in Dallas county, Arlington is in Tarrant county. You should get your facts right before you open you mouth...
sweetonetoo - If you were familiar with the story of the homeless couple, you would know their Super Bowl prize package was worth much, much $2,400. That would not only pay for necessities, buth some education in high-demand fields that would enable them to get off the street permanently.
Wasting money on "professional sports" (a contradiction in terms) is not a dream, it's dumb.
