Football Fan Sues NFL Due To Super Bowl Ticket Sales

Fans looking to get at ticket to the Super Bowl may be out of luck with only a month and change to go until the big event.

A businessman from New Jersey isn’t ready to quit on his chance though as he claims that the National Football League is withholding tickets to allow them to go up in price before the big game.

Josh Finkelman is suing the league for these accusations after spending $4,000 on two tickets.

According to the lawsuit, filed on Monday, the NFL allocates only 1 percent of tens of thousands of Super Bowl tickets to the general public through a lottery system.

The rest of the fans who want to attend the game are left to the mercy of secondary sales, in which ticket prices might be inflated many times their face value, especially if they are part of a package that includes parties, luxury hotels or limousine rides to the MetLife stadium in Rutherford, New Jersey, the complaint said.

“We have a statute in New Jersey that prevents the NFL from doing what they are doing,” Nagel said. “When the NFL has the Super Bowl in New Jersey, they have to open their eyes to New Jersey law.”

The NFL did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The class-action lawsuit seeks unspecified compensation.

Maybe you should start holding out hope that you may possibly have another chance to go to the Super Bowl. Keep your fingers crossed!
