The average ticket sold since the 49ers-Chiefs showdown was set for Miami on Feb. 2 is a whopping $6,785, according to the ticket platform SeatGeek.
The current get-in price is approximately $5,500.
“In general, it’s record-breaking demand,” SeatGeek communications manager Chris Leyden said in a phone interview. “It seems like the market is about 20 percent hotter than we anticipated.”
Leyden believes the Super Bowl droughts of the 49ers and Chiefs have contributed to the demand. The 49ers have only been to one Super Bowl since they won in 1995, while the Chiefs haven't reached a Super Bowl in 50 years.
Hard Rock Stadium is also one of the smaller NFL stadiums with a capacity of 65,326.
“On a personal level, it was kind of surprising how much demand there is,” Leyden said. “Right now, it’s looking like a 50/50 split between the two fan bases.”
