Maricopa, how deep are your pockets?
And how badly do you want to go to the Super Bowl this Sunday, Feb. 12, to watch the Kansas City Chiefs take on the Philadelphia Eagles at State Farm Stadium in Glendale?
Tickets on the secondary market start at about $4,000 and go to more than $20,000.
Face value starts at roughly $1,000.
On Feb.7, StubHub was advertising lower-bowl seats at the 50-yard line for $10,000 to $22,000 each.
A little rich for your blood? Why not sit in the upper deck, then, where it will set you back only $4,700 to $5,700 a ticket?
Pricing on SeatGeek was similar.
For a 50-yard-line seat in the fourth row it would cost you $22,000.
For a nosebleed seat, get ready to shell out at least $4,100.
If you’d rather invest your small fortune in wagering, where there’s at least a chance to get return on your investment, this is the first Super Bowl in Arizona since gambling on sports became legal in 2021 and business is expected to be brisk at Maricopa-area casinos, like Caesars Sportsbook at Ak-Chin Casino and Gila River’s BetMGM at Wild Horse Pass.
Not only can you gamble on the game’s outcome but also on an array of ancillary proposition bets, such as which team wins the coin toss, who scores the first touchdown and how long it takes to sing the national anthem.
Gaming industry experts estimate that as much as $750,000 will be gambled in Arizona on the game and related events.
With the WM Phoenix Open golf tournament concluding on Super Bowl Sunday, it is the biggest day in sports in Arizona and wagering in the state on all events combined could top $1 billion, they said.
