Key Facts

Tickets on the secondary market to Sunday’s AFC Championship game between the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs and the Baltimore Ravens start at $544 for a nosebleed seat in the end zone, with an average ticket price of $2,199, according to data from TicketiQ, making the game the second-most expensive conference championship game since TicketiQ started tracking NFL ticket prices in 2010.

The most expensive is this weekend’s NFC Championship game between the Detroit Lions and San Francisco 49ers, with tickets averaging $2,431 on the secondary market—the cheapest seats available start at $732.

That average ticket price outpaces the previous record of $1,822 for last year’s NFC Championship game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the 49ers.

Fans looking to sit closer to the field can expect ticket prices in the tens of thousands of dollars, with lower-level midfield seats going for as much as $25,000 for the AFC Championship, and $30,000 for the NFC Championship, according to TicketiQ.

Big Number

Nearly $40,000. That’s how much the most expensive lower-level 50-yard-line seat cost to last year’s Super Bowl between the Chiefs and the Eagles, with an average ticket price of $10,000 on the secondary market, according to TicketiQ, making it the third-most expensive Super Bowl, behind just the 2021 and 2022 Super Bowls.

What To Watch For

The cheapest tickets available on the secondary market to the Super Bowl on Feb. 11 cost more than $8,700, with an average ticket price of nearly $10,700, according to TicketiQ. The game, which will be broadcasted on CBS and available to stream on Paramount+, will also feature a halftime performance by eight-time Grammy Award winning R&B artist Usher, with country legend Reba McEntire and Post Malone performing the national anthem and “America the Beautiful” in the pregame show.

Surprising Fact

If the Lions—a 6.5-point underdog—defeat the 49ers on Sunday, Detroit would make its first Super Bowl appearance in franchise history. This Sunday’s game also marks the Lions’ first conference championship game since 1991, when Detroit was blown out by the Washington Redskins (now called the Commanders).
