The frenzy for tickets to the matchup between the Atlanta Falcons and the New England Patriots in Super Bowl 51 is off and running.

While average prices are down slightly from last year, tickets are still what most would consider unaffordable. Stubhub has released ticket price averages, with the lowest ticket currently available coming in at nearly $3,000. The highest ticket prices in reported as more than $15,000.

A big chunk of ticket demand is coming from Georgia, with 14 percent of tickets purchased by buyers in the state. Just after the Falcons won the NFC Championship, tickets sales spiked in the Atlanta area.

The Falcons are offering packages for fans that include a ticket to the game and access to parties and other events. The cheapest package, which is already sold out, is priced at nearly $4,000.

And those hoping to experience the game at the Georgia Dome will be disappointed. The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that an NFL rule will prevent the game from being shown at the stadium.
