How to Get Super Bowl Tickets for Free

By Timothy Bodamer

Getting free tickets to the big game, the Super Bowl, requires some diligence and good luck. Tickets for a major sporting event like this often incur more demand than supply. However with the big game comes opportunity through advertising and free giveaways. Depending on your circumstances you may get lucky.

Visit Craig's list (www.craigslist.org), a website that post items for sale to the public, including game tickets. Pick the Super Bowl host city and type "tickets." You'll find a list of tickets "for sale." Occasionally, you may find someone that can't go that's willing to part with the tickets rather than wasting them. You can also search "free Super Bowl tickets" on any Internet search engine.

Enter a contest. Watch television, including pro football, and keep an eye out for Super Bowl contests. Many advertisers run contests and hand out Super Bowl tickets. Enter as many times as you can to increase your chances. If you have Internet access you may be able to enter multiple times without having to pay for postage and send entries through the mail.

Plan a trip to the game. Go to stadium the day of the game. Wait for the kickoff. Once the game starts, ticket sellers will want to get rid of them. You may be able to offer to take the tickets for free or if you have the ability to pay a small amount, get them well below face value.

Offer a trade. If you have tickets to another sporting event, concert, or Broadway show, e-mail the person selling the Super Bowl tickets on sites like Craig's list (www.craigslist.org) or eBay (www.ebay.com) and offer a swap of tickets.

Contact the Super Bowl Host Committee. You can find this information by typing 'Super Bowl Host Committee' on any search engine. The committee offices may have an opportunity if you have special circumstances to apply for free tickets or know of companies or organizations that may be giving away tickets.
