It will not be cheap for Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos fans who want to go to the Super Bowl to buy tickets now on the secondary market.

The cheapest single ticket available on StubHub for Super Bowl 50 is $3,090 as of Wednesday, according to the ticketing site. The average ticket price sold for the game is $4,936.

The number of StubHub tickets sold to North Carolina and Colorado buyers continues to rise, and North Carolina slightly edges out Colorado. But the majority of tickets bought on StubHub so far are from California buyers.

California buyers represent 27 percent of ticket sales so far, StubHub said. Ten percent are from North Carolina, 9 percent are from Colorado, 5 percent are from New York, 5 percent are from Texas and the rest are smaller percentages from other states.

The least expensive StubHub ticket sold for $1,222 in the upper sideline, and the most expensive ticket sold for $27,983 on the lower prime club.

StubHub is just one secondary-market on which fans could buy tickets. On Ticketmaster, tickets ranged in cost from $3,083-$19,428 Wednesday.

Panthers’ season-ticket owners who were selected to buy Super Bowl tickets paid between $850-$3,000. Those represent between 7,500-8,000, though – a fraction of Levi’s Stadium, which has a capacity of 68,500.

The Panthers play their second ever Super Bowl in franchise history Sunday against the Denver Broncos in Santa Clara, Calif.
