INFOGRAPHIC: How Far Are Fans Traveling for Super Bowl 50?

There's seemingly no distance football fans won't travel to attend Super Bowl 50, the biggest game of the year.

According to data collected by online ticket resale marketplace Vivid Seats, the average distance traveled to this weekend's Big Game is 1,319 miles. To put the average trip distance into perspective, 1,300 miles is the equivalent to traveling from New Orleans to New York.

While a majority of ticketholders (68 percent) live within 2,000 miles of Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California, Vivid Seats found that at least two tickets were purchased more than 2,600 miles away in Mt. Sinai, New York.

Meanwhile, the closest fans secured a pair of tickets just 4.5 miles from the stadium in Mountain View, California. 

Unsurprisingly, Charlotte, North Carolina — home of the Panthers — was one of the top cities for Super Bowl 50 ticket purchases. However the other top cities may shock you.
