Super Bowl 50 may be the most expensive in series history with tickets averaging $5,000 a pop, according to WSBTV.

Football fans hoping to see the Carolina Panters and the Denver Broncos between the hedges can expect to pay thousands of dollars for tickets to the game and also incur other costs including transportation costs, parking and food and hotels in San Francisco,  one of the most expensive places in the country to live, according to the Council for Community and Economic Research’s Cost of Living Index.

All other costs aside, here are six things that could be purchased with the same amount of money some people are paying for a ticket to Super Bowl 50:

1. A cruise for you and 15 other friends 

Assuming you purchased a cruise package for $300, which is a reasonable assumption, you could go on a cruise to the Bahamas with more than a dozen of your closest friends and family and still have money leftover to spend.

2. About 500 large Papa John's pizzas

One large cheese pizza is about $10, so with 500 pizzas, you could buy enough to throw the entire neighborhood a pizza party or provide lunch for your whole company and maybe even the people in the building next door. 

3. A national experience with Guns N' Roses

According to Elite Daily, for the price of a Super Bowl ticket, a dedicated fan could buy tickets to every concert on the rock band's tour schedule and accompanying travel expenses.

4. A semester in school

About 50 colleges and universities offer programs that cost about the same as a ticket to this year's Super Bowl. Of course that cost only includes tuition and not books, meals or room and board, but it's a start.

5. A car

CarFax.com lists used Mercedes models, Corvettes and Mustangs for $5,000 and less.

San Francisco-based news station KRON reported that a consumer could also purchase at least eight courtside tickets for an NBA game, 40 flights between Los Angeles and San Francisco and a 65-inch LG Smart Ultra HD TV for the same price.
