DENVER (CBS4) – For anyone still debating about making the trip to the Super Bowl in New Jersey, it may more affordable than they think.

Ticket prices for the big game are taking a nose dive and it’s shaping up to be the least expensive since 2002.

The average price paid for a Super Bowl ticket on the inflated secondary resale market plummeted 40 percent from just over a week ago to around $2,056.

NFL officials say there’s no reason for concern.

“The secondary market is very strong, it ebbs and flows. If you look at it from one day to the next you’re going to see things going up and down, as has happened in every Super Bowl that we’ve been able to get data,” NFL Executive Vice President Eric Grubman said.

One reason for the lower than expected demand is the weather. Many fans would rather watch the game from the warmth of their own homes.
