Ticket Prices Soaring For 2019 Super Bowl Redemption Matchup

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Rams fans hoping to attend the upcoming Super Bowl against the Patriots may have to forego their mortgage payments to afford a ticket.

Nosebleed tickets at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta are already priced at a whopping $3,151 on ticketing websites such as VividSeats or Ticketmaster's NFL Ticket Exchange. More moderate dealers on Craigslist are offering similar tickets for the price of $2,500 per person.

But both of those prices appear reasonable when compared to the cost of renting a suite for the biggest game of the year. At $374,589, a suite that seats 18 people is available, which brings the price to about $21,000 per person.

Tickets around the stadium can be found between those benchmark prices. According to SeatGeek, a ticket search engine, the average ticket to the big game generally costs about $2,500 to $3,000. But, Super Bowl XLIX in 2015 was an exception, with the average ticket costing $4,314 per person.

Super Bowl LIII will be the Rams fourth Super Bowl appearance. Their last appearance was against the Patriots in 2002, when they were narrowly defeated 20-17 by the Bill Belichick-Tom Brady combo. Together, Belichick and Brady have won five Super Bowls.

The Rams have not won a Super Bowl since 2000.

Celebrities, stars, politicians, football fans and those who were a combination of all four made their voices heard Sunday following the come-from-behind victory.

New Orleans native Ellen DeGeneres did her best to get over the Saints losing.
