Attention well-heeded football fans: Here's a deal for you. Austin-based ticket agency TicketCity is offering a $1 million package for Super Bowl LI in Houston.

We know that sounds like a lot, but it's for 20 people and includes the following:

  • Private plane to and from Houston
  • Police escort to Super Bowl
  • Super Bowl premium seating
  • Courtside Houston Rockets tickets
  • UFC Fight Night VIP package
  • Stay at two luxury homes in the heart of Houston
  • Meals at Damians, Brennan's, Smith & Wollensky
  • Entry to ESPN party, Rolling Stone party, Leather and Laces party, Maxim party, NFL Honors Awards Show
  • Entry to NFL Players Tailgate party

Other perks for the four-night package (February 2-5) include a personal concierge, a spa day at the Houstonian, bourbon tastings, autographed helmets from such stars as Tom Brady, Troy Aikman, and Aaron Rodgers, autographed jerseys from Jerry Jones and the 1972 bMiami Dolphins perfect-season team, and a Super Bowl 50 helmet autographed by John Elway and Peyton Manning, along with a $5,000 gift card to shop for NFL merchandise.

"People in Texas want to spend a lot of money on shopping and football," says Shannon McKinley, TicketCity director of PR/Communications.

Right now, a Super Bowl ticket in the club level at NRG Stadium already is going for more than $11,000, so the package, which averages to $50,000 per person, could be considered a bargain in some circles, particularly if the Cowboys and Patriots make it to the Super Bowl, when it could be the most expensive sports event ever.

The Patriots, who have appeared in eight Super Bowls and won four of them, have a history of driving Super Bowl tickets higher and, the Cowboys, who haven't appeared in the Super Bowl since after the 1995 season (and have the longest Super Bowl drought of the eight remaining playoff teams), will have lots of excited fans who within a short drive of Houston.

"The Cowboys had the highest average ticket price of any team in the 2016 regular season, as well as the highest average attendance at 92,539 per home game," TicketCity writer Ian Delaplane concludes. "There are lots of Cowboys fans, and they are willing to spend money to see their team play. Throw in the fact that the Super Bowl is at NRG Stadium in Houston, only approximately 264 miles from their home stadium in Arlington, and traveling to the Super Bowl will be more accessible to Cowboys fans than any other team except the Houston Texans.

"Excited fans, with low travel expenses should mean high ticket demand and prices. A Cowboys Super Bowl win would tie them with the Pittsburgh Steelers for the most all-time at 6."

McKinley says the agency has two $1 million Super Bowl packages available, with other options available for customized packages. For additional details, contact Shannon@ticketcity.com or call 512-721-1124.
