Seahawks fans set to pay the price of the Super Bowl.

Fans of the Seattle Seahawks have seen their ticket prices take a dramatic rise in the aftermath of their Super Bowl championship.

An average rise by 35.8% from the 2013 season prices, Seahawks fans will now be set to pay $444 to attend home games.

Prior to the 2013 season, despite Seattle being an early frontrunner for the Super Bowl championship the average ticket price for a game at CenturyLink Field was just $253.

As the season continued and their fortunes began to grow, by the end of the season the average price for a game ticket was £335.

The 35% increase is the second-highest in the summer after their triumph by any team to have won the Super Bowl behind the 2011 New York Giants.

Only one team have seen their average ticket prices drop after winning the Super Bowl and that was the 2013 Baltimore Ravens, who followed that up with a fairly tame attempt at returning to the big game.

Seattle have done the opposite of Baltimore however after using this off-season to resign many of their big names like Richard Sherman, Malcolm Smith and Earl Thomas.

So Seattle could prove to be worth the extra money as they aim to make their way back to the promised land.
