Two hours before Super Bowl 50, the cheapest ticket on StubHub was a cool $3,000. And once you get into the stadium, it doesn't get much cheaper.
It'll cost at least $13 to enjoy a cold one at the big game. That's the price for a 16-ounce souvenir can -- or a 20-ounce draft in a souvenir cup -- of Bud Light. If high-end beer is your thing, there are plenty of options at Super Bowl 50: Anchor Steam, Lagunitas IPA and 10 Barrel, among others, all of which cost $15 for a draft. These prices will come as a shock to some Carolina fans used to the $5 beers at Panthers home games this season.

Is the Superbowl today? Huh. And people wonder why our country is in so much trouble. People get more excited about a bunch of men playing with a ball, than what's causing us to go down the drain.
Go Team!! [ whichever they are ]
While The Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee has estimated this Sunday's game will bring the state about $500 million, both economic research and the host city's own mayor suggest that number will be quite a bit lower.
But the Super Bowl is a bonanza for some, particularly the National Football League and its owners. On Friday, the average price of a ticket for the game was $10,517.80, according to TiqIQ, which tracks trends in event ticket buying. That makes this Sunday’s Super Bowl between the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots the most expensive sporting event since 2010, according to the ticket vending website. The average ticket price for the 2014 game was $3,375.88.
According to a confidential November, 2013 hosting bid document obtained by Minneapolis newspaper The Star-Tribune in 2014, the NFL keeps 100 percent of ticket revenue from the game.
Win on Sunday, and Newton will pay California a total of $159,560 in taxes in 2016. Lose, and he will pay $159,200, based on an income reduction of $51,000.
The result: Newton will pay California 99.6% of his Super Bowl earnings if the Panthers win. Losing means his effective tax rate will be a whopping 198.8%. Oh yeah, he will also pay the IRS 40.5% on his earnings.
