Fans of the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles will need to have deep pockets in order to make it to the Super Bowl in Minneapolis. Travel expert Jeannene Tornatore claims it will cost fans an average of 27% more to attend this year's Super Bowl – and we’re not just talking about getting into the game.
One-way non-stop airline tickets are running fans an average of 12-hundred-dollars to travel to Minneapolis for the big game. The few remaining tickets will cost roughly 46-hundred-dollars and fans will need to travel outside the city for a hotel where they will pay more than 300-dollars a night.
But it’s not just about getting there. Law enforcement officials in the Flour City are begging fans to use their brains when it comes to tickets – and game gear. As Minneapolis Police Department Lt. Kim Lund notes, “Please please please. Get the message…don’t get tickets off Craigslist.” Officials note that the only guaranteed source for tickets the NFL ticket exchange, Ticketmaster or from an NFL team's ticket box office.
