Attending the Super Bowl is on the bucket list of nearly every avid football fan in the world.
The only problem about attending the big game, is that it’s not financially do-able for most people.
This got us thinking… What exactly would it cost you to attend Super Bowl 50?
Now, keep in mind, these numbers are just for one person to head out west to cheer on the Panthers or the Broncos in Super Bowl 50 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara.
First off, you have to get there. Flying from Charleston to San Francisco will run you $975 round-trip.
Once you “touch-down” in San Francisco, you have to make the drive to Santa Clara. If you rent a car, a mid-size rental will cost you about $217 per day.
By now, most of the hotels are booked up. So unless you know someone who lives in Northern California, you’ll be paying around $1,236 a night for a 3-night hotel stay.
You’re almost there, you’re getting close to seeing the big game in person. Before head into the new Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, you have to get your parking pass and they aren’t cheap. It will cost you $2,532 to park your car.
Now you need your ticket to get you inside the stadium to witness the big game and the entertaining half-time show featuring Coldplay, Beyonce and Bruno Mars.
A single Super Bowl 50 ticket is going for an average of $12,815.
So what’s the final total? This three-day once in a lifetime trip will cost you a whopping $17,775.
To put that kind of cash into perspective, you could buy 20 pairs of Cam Newton’s zebra-print Versace pants.
