Good Question: How Are Super Bowl Tickets Distributed?

The cheapest seats for this Sunday’s Super Bowl are going for $1,500 a piece. That’s down from nearly $2,500 last week due to fears of cold and rainy weather at the outdoor MetLife Stadium. According to Ticket King, the Minnesota-based ticket reseller, there are about 4,000 available tickets left on the secondary market for the 82,000-seat venue. Andrew Baydala, executive director of business operations for Ticket King, says a 50-yard line club seat ticket is now going for nearly $9,000 on the secondary market.

Kaepernick, Strong Defense Help Establish 49ers Among NFL’s Best In 2013

Although they made a deeper playoff push a year ago, the 2013 season for the 49ers was far from a letdown. The team continued to improve each week, and heading into the off season know that they have a quarterback and defense that is going to make them contenders for years to come.

49ers Want Payback In Rematch With Carolina Panthers

Up next for the 49ers are the Carolina Panthers. Although the Panthers came to Candlestick earlier this season and beat San Francisco, the 49ers are the better team and have a very good shot at winning their second straight road playoff game.

Newton Needs Panthers Players To Step Up

The Carolina Panthers had to win the last game of the season to get the NFC South title and a first-round bye so it’s not like it was a time they could rest their players. Steve Smith had to sit out with an injury, and there were not a lot of other options for Cam Newton to rely on, but there need to be.
