When it comes to the Philadelphia Eagles, there is no superstar. Not a single Eagle ranks in the Top 5 in any of the major NFL individual categories and of the six key team stats, the Eagles rank No. 5 against the run. Other than that, the Eagles are absent. And yet they are poised for their first shot at a Super Bowl since 2004, when they lost to the New England Patriots.
Why no superstars? Likely because they’re all injured – both seven-time Pro Bowl left tackle and Jason Peters and second-year quarterback Carson Wentz are benched with knee injuries. The end result is a decided lack of respect for the Eagles. Despite being the No. 1 seed in the NFC, Las Vegas has made Philadelphia the underdog in Sunday’s NFC Championship against the Minnesota Vikings, in large part, due to the injuries. But the Eagles have been underdogs before (see last week’s NFC Divisional victory against Atlanta) and the odds are with them. According to Bleacher Report, Philadelphia has been a home underdog in the playoffs four times and has beaten the odds every time. It appears that fans are remaining confident, as secondary market prices for NFC Championship tickets are the highest they’ve ever been and are averaging over $1,280 per seat, according to TicketIQ.
So if you’re a confident Eagles fan, now might be the time to start looking for tickets to the Super Bowl, set for Feb. 4 in Minneapolis. NFLOnLocation.com, the official purveyor of Super Bowl LII tickets, has just the package for you. The company recently rolled out its “Hall of Fame” package, which allows fans to get tickets to the game and access to a hospitality suite where they can rub elbows with three Hall of Famers – NFL all-time leading rusher Emmitt Smith, former Vikings and Seahawks defensive tackle John Randle and former Bears defensive tackle Dan Hampton. The package, which starts at $6,299, also includes a ticket to a Pre-Game Party where Grammy winner Kelly Clarkson will perform and a pre-game hospitality area with a menu developed by chef Andrew Zimmern of the Travel Channel hit “Bizarre Foods: Delicious Destinations.”
The cost of the package is well below the current asking price for a seat at the Feb. 4 Super Bowl, according to TicketIQ.com. As of Jan. 15, tickets on the secondary market had reached a whopping $8,041.84, making them the most expensive since TicketIQ.com began tracking data in 2010. Prior to this season, the most expensive Super Bowl ticket was for the 2015 Patriots-Seahawks game, for which fans paid an average of $6,104.
What makes NFLOnLocation.com’s packages particularly unique – and completely different from when the last time the Eagles were in the Super Bowl – is that they offer fans the ability to select their own seats and pick packages with options that suit them.
For Philadelphia fans who don’t want to get caught without entrée into the NFL’s biggest event, NFLOnLocation.com has five packages still available, ranging in price from $6,299 (300-level seats plus the pre-game party) to $13,499 (field-level seats, pre-game party, post-game field access and other goodies).
The two least expensive packages – the Bronze and Hall of Fame – are currently priced nearly $2,000 below the cost of a ticket alone on the secondary market.
