Ticket prices ahead of Super Bowl 50 between the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers are at an all-time high.

The average resale price for a ticket on StubHub was $5,451, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. Two lower club seats to the game were purchased on Monday for approximately $28,000 per ticket.

The game will be played Feb. 7 in Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., the first Super Bowl in the Bay Area since the 1980s.

Prices this week ranged from $3,320 to $12,100 on SeatGeek, which is more than $1,200 per ticket greater than last year's Super Bowl between the Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots in Arizona and more than $2,900 more than the previous year's matchup between the Broncos and the Seahawks at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

"San Francisco is an incredibly wealthy market," SeatGeek content analyst Chris Leyden said, according to the Chronicle. "There are a lot of people with disposable incomes. There's a lot of demand in the Bay Area."

The biggest demand, according to USA Today, is in California. There was also keen interest in North Carolina, home of the Panthers, which had the second-most traffic on the SeatGeek site.
