Super Bowl tickets: pricey and hard to get

Posted: Updated:
NEW JERSEY (MYFOXNY.COM) - MetLife Stadium has slightly more than 80,000 seats. If you have the extra cash and want to see the biggest game in America played in person now is a good time to make your move.

Ticket brokers like Tom Patania with SelectATicket.com are going into high gear with Super Bowl 48 less than a month away.

A ticket in the lower level along the sideline will cost $5,500 with upper level tickets starting at $3,500. The reason tickets are two to three time higher than face value is simple: market demand. Patania said his company works with ticket marketplaces like StubHub to maximize profit.

SelectATicket.com also has Super Bowl packages which include tickets to the game along with hotel and transportation starting at $5,000.

Meantime, a fan in New Brunswick who purchased Super Bowl tickets has filed a class action lawsuit against the NFL claiming that he paid too much for his tickets and that the league didn't distribute enough tickets to the public to give them a chance to attend the game.

The NFL said it is reviewing the lawsuit.

    For decades, making some quick cash was the main drive behind so many who took the ride down the parkway to Atlantic City. But with so much to choose from nowadays, it looks like Atlantic City is in a lot of trouble.
