While we may not know yet who’s performing at halftime, we can give you some answers on other commonly asked questions for attending the Super Bowl.
If you’re wondering when you should buy your tickets, the answer is always “the sooner the better!” Many times fans wait to see if ticket prices will drop, only to find that they usually rise. This is especially true if the local-favorites, the Minnesota Vikings, were to make it to the Big Game. This would mean huge demand from the local fanbase, causing prices to spike. Keep in mind that the ticket prices are always driven by supply and demand, which is in turn impacted by the wins and losses throughout the regular season, especially toward the end.
If you’re purchasing a plane ticket for travel to the Super Bowl, make those flight reservations as early as possible as well. Look for routes to cities that are close to Minneapolis, like the St. Cloud Regional Airport or the Rochester International Airport. These are more likely to offer cheaper and more convenient flight times.
Finally, fans need a place to stay for the Big Game and all its festivities. Hotels can book up fast and are often overpriced due to such high demand. Wouldn’t it be nicer to end your Super Bowl Game Day in a nice, cozy true Minnesotan abode?
