Super Bowl LVIII 

Super Bowl LVIII, hosted at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada, on February 11, 2024, will be etched in the annals of NFL history as a clash of titans that captivated fans nationwide. In a dramatic overtime showdown, the Kansas City Chiefs triumphed over the San Francisco 49ers, delivering a game filled with twists and turns that kept spectators on the edge of their seats.

Despite ticket prices reaching astronomical heights, football enthusiasts from all corners of the country converged on Allegiant Stadium to witness this electrifying event. The influx of visitors prompted a closer examination of the geographical composition of attendees, shedding light on the widespread allure of the Super Bowl.

Unsurprisingly, Californians and Nevadans constituted the lion's share of attendees, a testament to the proximity of the host city and the fervor of local fan bases. However, the Super Bowl's magnetic pull extended far beyond the West Coast, drawing sizable contingents from states like New York, New Jersey, Georgia, and Florida, underscoring the game's universal appeal.


The top 10 origin markets for the Super Bowl event were:

  1. California
  2. Nevada
  3. New York
  4. New Jersey
  5. Georgia
  6. Florida
  7. Missouri
  8. Texas
  9. Arizona
  10. Illinois

Comparing the demographics of Super Bowl attendees to those of regular-season games at Allegiant Stadium revealed a significant shift. While locals traditionally occupied a substantial portion of seats during regular-season matchups, their representation dwindled to a mere 12% at the Super Bowl, highlighting the event's status as a national spectacle.



One of the most striking contrasts emerged in the distances traveled by attendees. The average journey undertaken by Super Bowl attendees dwarfed that of regular-season games, exceeding it by a factor of two

For instance, when the Chiefs clashed with the Raiders during the regular season, visitors traveled an average of 442 miles, primarily comprising locals. In stark contrast, the Super Bowl saw attendees traversing an average distance of 1,200 miles, indicative of the event's gravitational pull transcending geographical boundaries.



Average Distance Traveled (in Miles) for each NFL 2023-2024 game hosted at Allegiant Stadium.

  • Raiders vs Steelers: 772 Miles
  • Raiders vs Packers: 620 Miles
  • Raiders vs Patriots: 604 Miles
  • Raiders vs Jets: 717 Miles
  • Raiders vs Chiefs: 442 Miles
  • Raiders vs Vikings: 689 Miles
  • Raiders vs Chargers: 388 Miles
  • Raiders vs Broncos: 488 Miles
  • Super Bowl LVIII: 1,200 Miles

Furthermore, the duration of attendance at the Super Bowl far exceeded that of typical NFL games. With the game extending into overtime and ample time allocated for the halftime spectacle, attendees spent an average of six hours immersed in the thrill and excitement. This represented a stark departure from the customary three to four-hour timeframe.

In conclusion, Super Bowl LVIII epitomized the convergence of distance and devotion as fans from far and wide converged in Las Vegas to partake in a sporting extravaganza unlike any other.
