SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— So what happens if you’re a San Francisco 49ers Faithful and you want to go to the Super Bowl? The 49ers sold out of their small allotment of Super Bowl tickets on Tuesday to a lucky handful of season ticket holders and have no seats to sell to the public. That means any Niner fans who want to go to the game must fight online for a dwindling supply of seats, hotel rooms and airplane tickets.
You can go to New Orleans, but expect to spend a lot of money. The franchise is partnering with a travel company called Prime Sport to sell packages, ranging from $2,500 for a ticket to the game to over $5,000 a ticket, three nights in a hotel and a charter flight from Oakland.
If you don’t cough up big bucks for a package, hotel rooms are scarce. We checked with Sherry at The Royal Sonesta on Bourbon Street in the French Quarter. She said they’re actually experiencing a buyout.
