Think the extra couple of hundred pesos your local mall is charging for your extended stay in its parking garage is absurd? You ain’t seen nothing yet.
In the US, prices for 2022 Super Bowl parking slots near SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, California are reaching downright ridiculous sums. In fact, according to a new report by the Los Angeles Times, resellers are jacking up prices for some spaces up to $4,850 (around P250,000). Just wow.
The price mentioned above is for Super Bowl parking slots in a lot just a mile from where the Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals will be facing off later this week. This is just one of the over 100 parking options listed on StubHub.
More affordable Super Bowl parking slots?
The report adds that the cost of a slot by the nearby Midas auto shop in Inglewood now goes for as much as $1,500 (P76,000), and that there are listings located at nearby casinos going for $300 to $400 (P15,000 to P20,000). So yeah, there are still options—albeit still rather expensive ones.
Frankly, this shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise. SoFi Stadium has a maximum occupancy of over 70,000 spectators, and the Super Bowl is, well, the Super Bowl. But paying the price of a secondhand car to watch any event? Yeah, we think we’d rather walk. Agree?
