New Jersey Man Sues NFL After Spending $4,000 on Two Super Bowl Tickets

Alleges violation of state consumer fraud law


On Dec. 30, Josh Finkelman, a football fan from New Brunswick, shelled out $4,000 to a ticket reseller for two seats to the Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium, an event expected to haul in hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue for the National Football League.

But Finkelman — and his lawyer — believe that Finkelman was forced to spend far too much money for his tickets, because they claim the NFL has made just 1 percent of Super Bowl seats available to the general public at face value.
