If you want to join the Seahawks at Super Bowl XLVIII in New Jersey, here are some tips.
Lottery: A Super Bowl ticket lottery for Seahawks season-ticket holders was held after the NFC Championship Game for the chance to buy tickets, according to the Seahawks website. Winners will be notified no later than Tuesday via email and express mail delivery with ticket pickup instructions. All full season-ticket holders were eligible for the drawing and need not apply.
PrimeSport: PrimeSport is partnering with the Seahawks to provide Super Bowl tickets, which are not available at the CenturyLink box office or through the Seahawks. PrimeSport can be reached at 1-877-211-9374 www.primesport.com/seattleseahawks/home PrimeSport can also provide airfare, hotel accommodations, all ground transportation, access to PrimeSport’s VIP Pregame Hospitality party, souvenirs and more. You can choose three-night weekend packages with or without airfare.
Other sources: Fans can try their luck in the online ticket-resale market, though available figures do not seem promising. According to the NFL Ticket Exchange, end-zone tickets were going for about $2,800. On StubHub, the cheapest ticket was about the same, with the most inexpensive upper end-zone ticket going for about $2,520.
White packages: The NFL also has a limited number of “white packages” available. In these, fans can have access to “Insider Extras” and can choose to pay either for tickets or for a combo deal that also includes three-day hotel accommodations. Prices for white packages that do not include hotels currently range from $4,899 to $7,299 per person, according to nflonlocation.com.
