If you’re one of the lucky ones who can afford it, you can purchase a Super Bowl XLIX ticket package worth $20,000.
According to a Dec. 18 update by The Arizona Republic’s Peter Corbett, the package is known as the “Touchdown Club” includes two end-zone tickets, a hospitality suite and a four-night stay at a luxury hotel. A solitary ticket in the south end-zone bleachers without parking fees is worth $7,000.
Corbett says the three- or four-night hotel packages are optional. Among the hotels the guests can choose from are the Scottsdale Mariott at McDowell Mountains or the Phoenix Marriott Tempe at the Buttes.
If the fan chooses to avail of the “Touchdown Club” package for three nights, he will pay $16,600. A four-night double occupancy package would cost $17,000, per Corbett. Opting for a premium hotel, double occupancy package costs the full $20,000.
Corbett lists the amenties which await lucky fans:

Corbett stresses the NFL has yet to release standard ticket prices for Super Bowl XLIX, although they fell within the $500-$2,600 range for last year’s big game pitting the Denver Broncos against the eventual winner Seattle Seahawks.
The host team Arizona Cardinals will be allotted five percent of the total tickets (3,500 seats). As for the other NFL teams, they will be given a combined 17.5 percent (12,400 seats). The total capacity of the University of Phoenix Stadium is 71,000, per The Arizona Republic article.
