NFL Sued for Consumer Fraud over Super Bowl Tickets

A New Jersey man has sued the National Football League (NFL) for violating the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act. The suit accuses the NFL of pricing average football fans out of the Super Bowl by only making 1 percent of all tickets available to the public for purchase at face value. The NFL says it is reviewing the suit, but notes that three-quarters of the game’s tickets are given to teams, which sell them at face value to fans who win lotteries. Knoxnews has the story.
