Colts will get few tickets for Indy’s first Super Bowl in 2012

INDIANAPOLIS – Local fans wanting to attend the 2012 Super Bowl in Indianapolis may have a hard time finding tickets.\nLucas Oil Stadium will seat 73,000 for the NFL championship game, but the Colts will receive only 5 percent of that capacity for hosting the game. That means about 3,600 tickets for Colts employees, sponsors and fans.\nThat could change if the Colts make it to the big game that year. The two teams playing in the Super Bowl each receive about 17 percent of the tickets, while about 25 percent of the tickets go to the NFL.\nThose who have the opportunity to buy tickets will need lots of cash. Last year, tickets cost $700 and $900. They could approach $1,000 or more for the 2012 game.
