Most Expensive Sports Events around the World

The excitement of sports really comes alive when you’re in the arena cheering on your guys with the crowds of fans around you shouting, waving and chanting with delight. And it’s particularly exciting going to watch a final – knowing this is the last chance to win makes the air absolutely electric! These finals can be rather pricey to attend, but then you’re a newly minted lottery winner you can have your pick of finals tickets.

Masters Tournament

The Masters Tournament

The most expensive golfing event of the year! The tickets for a full weekend pass to see all four days of the tournament action cost $4,486, with the one-day pass tickets ranging between $1,215 to $1,786 depending on the day. A practice round during the Masters week can also set you back a pretty penny, at $1,118 – as much as a four-day pass to the PGA Championship!

Superbowl 2014

The Superbowl 2014

Prices for the higher end tickets are being doubled for the upcoming Superbowl from $1250 to $2600, but the organisers do promise to decrease the cheaper tickets from $600 to $500 -  a mere drop in the ocean compared with last year’s ticket sales, some reaching as much as $5000 above their original value! Prices this coming year are expected to reach even higher for the 2014 football game.

Wimbledon

2013 Wimbledon Final

The two top tennis players in the world played a final that would go down in history in July this year. It also resulted in the most expensive tickets in Wimbledon history with ticket prices growing from the original £130 to as much as £40,000 each on the morning of the match! The event was priceless in the end, with spectators being witness to the first British Wimbledon champion since Fred Perry.

World Cup 2014

The 2014 Football World Cup

Tickets are always expected to be pricey for this popular football event, and next year is no different. A group stage match costs £110 and a ticket to the final will set you back £670. And these are just the face value of the tickets – imagine the price hikes with second sales! And it won’t be just the event tickets, with Brazilian taxi drivers taking advantage of the event and charging up to thirty times the regular taxi fare.

Mayweather Vs. Alvarez

Floyd Mayweather Vs. Canelo Alvarez

This boxing match was one of the most anticipated of the century, taking the arena in September this year. The most expensive ticket sold at the original price was $2000, while a resale on a ring side seat ticket went for $30,000!
