By the numbers: What does the Super Bowl cost? - Yahoo! News

Super Bowl XLV is going to be the biggest tourism weekend that North Texas has ever seen. Organizers of all kinds are making sure it's one for the history books.

Is everything bigger in Texas? Here's a study of the numbers associated with this year's Super Bowl:


150,000 visitors are expected to come to North Texas for Super Bowl-related events, according to TxDOT. A whopping 250,000 are expected at the NFL Experience, the theme park at the Dallas Convention Center.
The average Super Bowl ticket is going for about $4,000 on Stub Hub, with the highest ticket offered at $645,899 for a Hall of Fame suite ticket. (Parking not included.)
Face value for tickets is $600-$1,200, the NFL confirmed, though a seat outside the stadium in the "party zone" goes for $200 each. They're only available in four packs, so we'll call it $800.
800 buses, 1,200 cabs, 500 limos, and 600 corporate planes will be used to transport people coming in for the big game, according to the Dallas Business Journal.
There have been reports that Jerry Jones hopes to break the Super Bowl record, which could be reached if more than 104,000 people attend the game at Cowboys Stadium. The building itself is 3 million square feet, which means that each person gets 28.8 square feet to themselves, should they spread out evenly in the stadium. (We know that would never actually happen, but it's fun to think about.)
Many parking lot spots are going for $500 each, including the one in this Craigslist post.
The cheapest event related to the Super Bowl is, well, free. The most expensive is $25,000 for a seat to the Prince concert. (The cheapies go for $1,500 at the Prince concert.) Not to be outdone, it's also $25,000 for the Diddy party. It's $10,000 for a seat at Aces and Angels and $8,000 to attend XLV Party. (NOTE: Prices vary; some seats for the above events are less expensive depending on the seat.)
A slightly cheaper way to be at the game -- though you'll have to bear just as much traffic -- is the $495-$725 seats to the NFL Alumni Game Day Super Party.
And we don't know how much Playmates usually cost, but around the Super Bowl, it's $500-$750 to see Pamela Anderson. (Or for these models, priceless.) Bowling with a celebrity, though slightly less glamorous, will cost you $300.
Moms seem to go for more than dads: Dinner with NFL moms is $100; lunch with NFL dads is $75. Or is it the difference in meal time that makes up that $25?
And finally, you can rent a house in Arlington for the Super Bowl for $18,000. A three-bedroom in Southlake goes for quite a bit cheaper -- $5,000. But the granddaddy of them all is this tailgating trailer for $800. You can't sleep in it, but you can play Corn Hole all day.


Definitely a part for the rich (or those foolish with their money). Too bad much of this stadium was paid with the Arlington taxpayers money. Your average citizen is not able to enjoy the benefits of this place.

I think I'll just it on my TV here in Dallas. Or maybe I can rent my TV out to some Green Bay or Steelers fans?

(next to George Bush ) Jerry Jones is the worst thing ever happened to Texas.
