Expensive tickets

Hi everyone, this is Paul Cameron at my desk in the WBTV Newsroom.

The golden anniversary of the Super Bowl is bringing platinum ticket prices.  Resellers are getting more than $5,000 for seats in the upper deck according to ticket price tracker SeatGeek.  A pair of club seats near the 50 yard line already sold for $12,000 each.

Fortunately, you can watch the game for free on WBTV on February 7th at 6:30 p.m.

The Panthers and Broncos will each get about 12-thousand tickets to sell to their season ticket holders at face value.  Carolina’s PSL owners with the most seniority and number of seats will get top preference.

No school for CMS and many other districts around Charlotte.  Ice in some school parking lots hasn’t melted fully and make-up days are now set for February 15 and April 25.  Of course, waiting to call school off until after 5:00 p.m. has raised the ire of working families who must now scramble to find childcare at the last minute.

Please join Eric, Molly Grantham, Delano Little and me for WBTV News at 11:00!
