Super Bowl XLVII will be one to remember when the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens square off at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans on Feb. 3. The Superdome has hosted more Super Bowls than any other venue, and will now hold the distinction of featuring the first-ever Super Bowl with brothers (John and Jim Harbaugh) as opposing head coaches. See the trends in ticket prices, attendance, and halftime performers through the years with this trip down Super Bowl memory lane. Still looking to get to the game? Get your Super Bowl tickets at Vivid Seats. Over the years, the average price per ticket has slowly but steadily increased. It's an unavoidable truth that the price of an in-demand event would continually rise, but the NFL's doing its part to make the big purchase with every penny. For one, the presentation value of the Super Bowl has been rising in recent years. Following the Janet Jackson fiasco of 2004, the NFL began a boring trend of inviting elderly musicians to perform at halftime. That trend has faded in the past few years, as you can see to the right. This year's Super Bowl promises to be yet another great event, and there's a great chance it'll come down to the wire. That kind of promise will being the masses to New Orleans, and you can count on the average ticket price to continue to rise as the NFL gains more and more popularity. [follow]
