We decided to do some speculative math on what Super Bowl tickets would have cost in an alternate universe where the Jets and Giants both made the 2014 Super Bowl.
According to Kiplinger, New York City is the single most expensive city in the United States to live in. Fittingly, the Big Apple will play host to the most expensive Super Bowl of the past six years.
The cheapest seats in the house are going for $3,200 or $3,300. Those prices are about 10 percent higher than usual for the Super Bowl.
The Yankees are dropping the price on 9,000 seats next season, raising the cost of 2,000 and leaving the rest the same, while building a new lounge and 10 additional suites.
Club-level seats in the mezzanine — which have access to restaurants — are likely to cost something in the neighborhood of $2,600, league officials told The Wall Street Journal.
Subway Series tickets can get pricey. No surprise there. Apparently that also applies to Yankees family members.
Jets president Neil Glat said the dip in prices is being made “to improve the value for our fans, especially our season ticket holders.”
MSG goers temporarily saw ticket prices skyrocket after New York’s trade for Carmelo Anthony. According to the New York Post, Knicks season ticket holders can soon expect a permanent rise in dues.
Was the Knicks’ blockbuster trade for Carmelo Anthony too costly? That’s the subject of intense deliberation. What’s not under debate is the rising cost for Knicks fans hoping to catch Carmelo’s debut at the Garden.
The Mets will commence the managerial derby on Thursday and Friday of this week. Brooklyn Cyclones manager Wally Backman and third base coach Chip Hale are at the top of the internal list.
The Mets said Wednesday they are cutting ticket prices by an average of 14 percent next season and that season-ticket holders and groups will get an additional 10 percent off at Citi Field.
The New York teams had the steepest increases after moving into the New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. Jets tickets went up 31.8 percent and the Giants rose 26 percent.
