This blog, this site, is really for all NFL football fans…
If you should happen to save a few bucks along the way, all the better, I say.
Times are… different. I mean, even this family with a six-figure income needed a little help.
If you have tickets for Super Bowl LI at NRG Stadium, raise your hand if you’ve been called “lucky” at least once. Are you lucky? In a sense, yes, because most NFL fans will never, ever get to attend a Super Bowl.
But unless you were given the tickets or won them in a contest, then luck is less of a factor than the fact that you were willing & able to pay a premium. Besides, there’s nothing lucky about being ripped off.
Did I say “ripped off”? OK, maybe that’s a poor choice of words, but it’s what comes to mind when the cheapest ticket on the secondary market averages $4809.
Prices are as of Jan.8,2017 and are per seat (minimum purchase of 2)
Yep, at $4183, SeatGeek’s price is an absolute bargain, relatively speaking of course.
And then there’s the parking:
To be fair, this is simply supply & demand at work; the ticket brokers charge this much because they can.
And to be honest, while the parking pass price above is real, it represents the most expensive, and not the average price.
The best price I’ve seen for a Super Bowl LI parking pass is $84 at StubHub (all fees included) as of this writing. This is a great price, especially when you consider that parking for regular season games at AT&T Stadium is $75 at face value.
But why even pay that much? You’ve already spent thousands on tickets,
don’t get ripped off again why not save big on parking?. For much, much, cheaper NRG Stadium parking options for Super Bowl LI, go here.
It reads like a “Lifestyles of The Rich & Famous” episode, NFL style:
While these things may or may not have deeper socioeconomic ramifications, one thing’s for certain - the cost of NFL tickets and the cost of being a fan will continue to rise.

|Gillette Stadium parking|
On sites such as StubHub, it can cost you anywhere from $50-$250 to park at Fedex Field for a Redskins game, and $200-$700(!) at Gillette Stadium to see the Patriots.
But you can spend a whoooole lot less by looking for offsite parking facilities nearby.
