Thinking about checking out the 48th installment of the NFL Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium in February of 2014? Hopefully you've saved your pennies. The NFL says the highest-priced tickets for this season's Super Bowl will be around $2,600.Those 9,000 premium tickets are more than double the price of last year's seats of the same type. Last year in New Orleans, those premium seats went for a "meager" $1,250.

The next level of seating is priced around $1,500 per ticket, $550 more than their $950 New Orleans counterparts. Unlike the upper-tier tickets, the lowest price general admission ticket prices (on average) have fallen from $650 last year to around $500 this year. Most general admission tickets are expected to sell for under $1,000.

NFL Spokesperson Brian McCarthy says the significant price increase in many ticket tiers is due to a larger than normal buzz and demand due to the unique location of this year's game. Most Super Bowl games take place in warmer climates, and/or indoors.

With the price jump from last year's indoor game, NFL officials better hope for nice weather for this year's cold-climate outdoor game; or admission better come with a nice blanket.
