Tickets to this year’s Super Bowl sold for $4,841 on average on the secondary market — the most expensive ticket in U.S. sports history. A pair of seats at the 50-yard line for that game sold for $20,500 each.
Leicester-Everton does’t quite reach that level, but tickets are still six times as much as the cheapest seat to see Kobe Bryant’s final NBA game this Wednesday ($700).
The Foxes are on the brink of the most surprising title run in league history, with the club needing just nine points from their remaining five games. That means Leicester have a good chance of playing their final home game at King Power Stadium either as newly-crowned champions or with a chance to clinch.
Tickets for the penultimate match of the season went on sale Monday with a face value of £30-£50 ($43-$71) for adults and £5-£15 ($7-$21) for children. A club spokesman told the Leicester Mercury that tickets "sold out within 90 minutes."
