Get your Super Bowl 2014 tickets

Ticket prices to the Super Bowl are often volatile in the weeks before the teams are selected, and the 2014 match-up in New York City is no different. The NFL makes only a small number of tickets available directly to fans, reserving the rest for VIPs, sponsors and league insiders. That means almost anyone who buys tickets to the game will acquire them through a secondary ticket marketplace.

How much can you expect to pay for 2014 Super Bowl tickets?

Most tickets to Super Bowl 2014 fall into the range of $3,000 to $5,000 apiece. Of course, there are premium lower level seats to be had for $12,000 or so and suites for much higher prices. At last check, the lowest get-in-the-door price was about $2,600, which is actually lower than prior years. Ready to buy? Reserve your seats now.

When is the best time to buy tickets?

But expect volatility as teams are gradually eliminated from contention. If teams with rabid fans likely to travel emerge from the AFC and NFC championships, expect prices to rise for the big game. Typically, the best times to buy tickets are before the teams are set and shortly before kickoff. The worst often is right after both teams are set.

Super Bowl 2013 Takes Cues from Indy

The 2013 Super Bowl is just around the corner. The next game, on Feb. 3, 2013 in New Orleans at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, will take cues from Indy's 2012 game. Chief among them: The Verizon Super Bowl Boulevard. The offerings, which mirror Indy's Super Bowl Village, include a four-day lineup of music, food, live national television broadcasts, interactive fan events, and the iconic Super Bowl roman numerals.  Free to the public, the Verizon Super Bowl Boulevard will open Jan. 31 and run daily until Super Bowl Sunday.

Indianapolis Plans Bid for Second Super Bowl

Multiple local news sources are reporting that Indianapolis civic leaders will soon announce the city's plans to bid for a second Super Bowl. The Feb. 5, 2012 event was a resounding success for the city thanks to unseasonably warm weather, a monumental volunteer effort and a series of Super Bowl firsts including the popular Super Bowl Village.

No word yet whether the city will bid on the 2016 game, the next one the NFL will award. The city hopes to find itself in the regular rotation of host cities, joining the likes of Miami and greater Phoenix. Indy's compact, clean downtown is a big asset, though league officials have suggested the city will need more hotel rooms to make the regular rotation.

The 2013 Super Bowl is slated for New Orleans, the 2014 game will be played in New York, and the 2015 game is scheduled for Glendale, Arizona.
