This year's Super Bowl has set a record high for ticket prices.

The Los Angeles Rams defeated the San Francisco 49ers to win the NFC championship Sunday. They will face the Cincinnati Bengals at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, near Los Angeles, in the Super Bowl on Feb. 13 — playing at home against an opponent that has never won a championship.

As of Tuesday morning, the average price for a ticket was $10,237, according to SeatGeek's Super Bowl ticket tracker. The average ticket prices for the Super Bowls in 2021 and 2020 were $8,609 and $7,172, respectively, said Chris Leyden, SeatGeek's director of consumer strategy.

The previous record was set last year. Leyden said that was because of the stadium's reduced capacity due to Covid-19 restrictions.

"For 2022, ticket prices for the Super Bowl really speak to L.A. as a city and market," Leyden said. "L.A. is the home team's city and a great destination to visit during this time of the year."

Football fans in Los Angeles, as well as in New York City, are also the most enthusiastic buyers for America's most popular sporting event, Leyden said.

This year's Super Bowl will be the first the Bengals have reached since 1988. For that reason, Leyden said, "many people in Cincinnati are excited to see their team, who has not historically seen success, at this sports show."

The Rams lost to the New England Patriots 13-3 in the 2019 Super Bowl.

The Super Bowl will be broadcast in English on NBC and in Spanish on Telemundo, and it will be available to stream for premium users of Peacock and through NBC Sports’ platforms.

Information about international broadcasts can be found here. Kickoff for the Feb. 13 matchup is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. PT, 6:30 p.m. ET.
