NFL Super Bowl ticket lottery is live

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Want to get Super Bowl tickets early? Enter the lottery!

The Super Bowl is one of the most popular events in America, and accordingly, tickets go for top dollar. In spite of what some might think, tickets are always available, but usually you have to be willing to pay a significant premium on the face value.

In case you were not aware,it turns out the NFL has other options for people to get tickets. The league conducts an annual lottery through which the winners are each given an opportunity to purchase two tickets. I have no idea how many people can win the lottery, but the opportunity is there.

This year's Super Bowl is at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, just outside of New York City. Obviously we won't know the participants yet. Many would only be interested in going if the 49ers were one of the teams. If you are one of these people, I would argue it is still worth getting in on the lottery. It is fairly easy to unload tickets in the weeks leading up to the Super Bowl, and you likely will earn a nice little premium for your troubles.

I bring all this up because we are in the window for submissions to the lottery. The league accepts entries between February 1 and June 1 of the year preceding the game in question. All ticket requests must be sent via certified or registered mail. Your request for admittance into the drawing should include Full Name, address, city, state, zip, phone, and email. They should be sent to:

Super Bowl Random Drawing
P.O. Box 49140
Strongsville, OH 44149-0140

You can only submit one request per address. You will be notified via regular mail in late October or early November as to the status (win or lose) of your eligibility to purchase Super Bowl tickets.
