Super Bowl LI and 2017 NFL Playoffs Ticket Demand and Prices on StubHub – January 10th, 2017

NFL Wild Card weekend is complete. The Seahawks, Texans, Packers, Steelers will all advance to play another week. Teams playing their first home playoff games, thanks to their bye weeks last week, include the Falcons, Patriots, Chiefs, and Cowboys. That means the two Texas teams (where Super Bowl LI will be held) are still alive and a “home state” Super Bowl is still in play.

How has this affected Super Bowl ticket demand? Currently on StubHub, demand for Super Bowl tickets is up 12% compared to last week, in terms of total volume of tickets sold.We are now four weeks away from the biggest day in football, so tune into the StubHub Press Box for weekly updates on what we’re seeing for the NFL playoffs and the Super Bowl.

Where are sales coming from? There have been purchases made in 8 unique countries from as far as Australia, South Africa, and the UK. Due to the location and proximity to our southern neighbor, it is no surprise that after the U.S., Mexican buyers make up about 7% of overall sales.
