MetLife Stadium Suites Commanding Record Prices For Super Bowl XLVIII
Suites at MetLife Stadium for Super Bowl XLVIII "will be looking at record prices," according to Darren Rovell of ESPN.com. A suite that "comes with 30 tickets -- 24 with seats and six standing room tickets -- is listed at $472,996 on RazorGator.com, and that's the cheapest option." The "highest listed price, also on RazorGator.com, is $945,992." The best Super Bowl suites "can usually be had for $175,000, but New York is a different story, especially with the possibility of inclement weather for the first-ever outdoor, cold weather Super Bowl." A source said that within the "last two months, one 24-ticket suite sold for $750,000." Texas-based Golden Tickets VP Ram Silverman said, "The asking price for some of these suites is three to four times what they've been for any other Super Bowl. There's obviously a lot of corporate money in New York, but it also has to do with the fact that there's not that many available on the market." Rovell noted suite-holders for Giants or Jets games "don't have access to their suites for the Super Bowl." The "only way to get a suite is to buy one from the NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Committee." While prices "have not been made public, the 28 sponsors of the committee -- which include Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, Citi, Pepsi, Bud Light and Verizon -- got suites and paid more than $1 million for the sponsorships" (ESPN.com, 9/9).
