From Best Free Stuff Guide

Jump to: navigation, search


Free Super Bowl tickets are available each year through a variety of contests, sweepstakes, and giveaways. Each year, 25 percent of Super Bowl tickets are given to NFL sponsors, charities, networks, and affiliated companies, while the two participating teams each receive 17.5 percent of the tickets to give out to their fans. 5 percent of the tickets go to the host team each year, while 35 percent of the tickets are distributed to the 29 remaining teams, roughly about 1.2 percent of tickets per team. This makes scoring tickets each year costly, but not impossible.[1] [2]

The 2015 Super Bowl, Super Bowl XLIX, will be held in February in Glendale, Arizona, which is home to the Arizona Cardinals.[1]

About Super Bowl Tickets

Each year Super Bowl tickets are in demand, with a limited number of tickets available to the general public. The majority of the tickets are allotted each year to the two participating teams. The remaining NFL teams are also given a select number of tickets. This means that season ticket holders for the two participating teams will have a stronger chance of scoring seats. However, even season ticket holders may have a difficult time purchasing tickets. For example, the New York Giants held a lottery for their season ticket holders to determine who could purchase the ones available for the 2012 Super Bowl. The cost was $900 per ticket.[3]

Since only a limited number of tickets are available to the public, Super Bowl tickets are expensive and difficult to find. However, third-party ticket options are available. Those who have tickets may sell them, for example, through websites like Ticket Stub, Ticket Luck, or eBay.[4] In 2012, Costco had ticket packages available for members at prices ranging from $2999.99 to $9999.99.

Super Bowl Random Drawing Tickets

A small number of tickets are made available to the general public each year. These tickets are acquired by participating in the "Super Bowl Random Drawing." In order to enter into the drawing, individuals must send a written request that includes their full name, address, city, state, zip, phone, and e-mail address to:[1]

    Super Bowl Random Drawing
    P.O. Box 49140
    Strongsville, OH 44149-0140

Only one entry per address is accepted. Entries for the 2015 Super Bowl must be received between February 1, 2014, and June 1 of 2014. This means that individuals wanting to secure seats to Super Bowl XLIX need to enter between February 1, 2014, and June 1, 2014. Individuals who are selected will be notified in late October or November (by mail) as to whether they can purchase tickets.[1]
