How to get 2019 Super Bowl tickets

Tickets for Super Bowl 53 in Atlanta are hard to get, but not impossible.

Super Bowl LIII is set: the New England Patriots will face the Los Angeles Rams.

It happens at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on February 3, 2019. Can you get tickets to the big game?

The short answer is yes, you can get tickets if you have money. Lots of money. And some connections probably would help.

Super Bowls aren't like normal events; tickets are not made available to the general public. 

Instead, the NFL distributes them to a number of people. According to TickPick.com, each participating team gets 17.5% of tickets. That's a total of 35%, most of which goes to season ticket holders and the players. 

The host team, in this case the Atlanta Falcons -- gets 6.2%. These are also made available to some season ticket holders.

The other 28 teams get 33.6% of the tickets, which breaks down to 1.2% for each team. 

The NFL then gets the remainder of tickets -- about 25.2%. These are sold to partners, media and sponsors.

How do I get Super Bowl 2019 tickets?

That all being said, you can still find ways to buy tickets to the Super Bowl. It just won't be cheap.

NFL.com points to its Ticket Exchange. As of January 18, the cheapest ticket available was $3,850 (Section 305/Row 6). The most expensive runs for $30,000 (Section 128C, Row 16).

Several hotel packages include Super Bowl tickets. They run from $5855 (per person) for a 3-night stay at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta Perimeter, which includes a Super Bowl LIII ticket (and access to an "All-inclusive Pregame Party") to $6585 (per person) for a 4-night stay at AC Hotel Buckhead (again, which includes a game ticket and an "all-inclusive pregame party" ticket).

Then there are other third-party vendors who have tickets available, including StubHub, Vivid Seats, SeatGeek, and Ticket IQ. Click here to track prices there.
