The 12th Man has been waiting for a trip to the Super Bowl for a long time. But fans heading that way will have to spend some big bucks to see their home team.

A trip to Super Bowl XLVIII in New Jersey could cost you nearly $10,000 - that's if you buy a package through the league's official broker.

The big expense is the ticket, listed on the official NFL exchange at almost $3,000 each - and that's for the cheap seats. A ticket costs a little less on sites like Prime Sports. Hotels rooms are more affordable less at around $300.

And roundtrip flights are reasonable too, especially if you fly into airports outside New York.

The Washington State Lottery is also giving fans a chance to win a trip to the Super Bowl.

Starting Monday through Wednesday, Seahawks fans can purchase a $10 lotto ticket at any Safeway store in the state. Fans must turn in a "mail-in" voucher for a chance to win the big prize.

One winner will get two game tickets to the Super Bowl, including airfare, hotel and a $500 Visa gift card. Twenty-four more winners will receive gift cards to the Seahawks Pro Shop.

For more information, go to the Washington State Lottery website.
