In every efficient market, buyers and sellers are able to see what one another is willing to pay. However, this has hardly been true for Super Bowl tickets — until now. TickPick, the only ticket site that charges absolutely no service fees, has created a system where fans can select the seats and sections that they’re interested in, the ticket price they are willing to pay, and an expiration time down to the hour on that offer.TickPick’s patented bidding platform allows fans to name their ticket price and take the chance that a seller is willing to meet that price, saving them money that can be hundreds or thousands of dollars in the process for an event as major as the Super Bowl.

How Can I Name My Price and Bid on Super Bowl Tickets?Take a look below at our website’s bidding platform page for Super Bowl LIII at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. Users can place a bid on all Super Bowl tickets in just a few easy steps.
- Select number of tickets for how many Super Bowl tickets you’re looking to purchase.
- Select quality of seats (you may choose up to five, which are on a scale of 1-5) that will filter out any seats with a rating you’re not looking for. Keep in mind that the higher the “seat quality” score generally means the prices will be higher.
- Set your bid price to alert all sellers who have tickets within those sections and/or that fall under that seat quality rating.
Super Bowl LIII | What Are Fans Willing to Pay?As of this update (December 20th, 2018), there haven’t yet been any bids placed for Super Bowl LIII tickets.

However, what this means is that if you are interested in purchasing tickets, now is the perfect time to place a bid. You’ll have no competition with other bidders, and if you bid a reasonable price, a seller could very well be interested in getting rid of a piece of their inventory before the real Super Bowl craziness starts.
