Super Bowl LI, happening in Houston on February 5, is coming up fast, and travelers are gearing up for the event.

Ticket seller StubHub looked at where sales for this year's event came from. Texas took the lead in attendees: 21 percent of sales so far have come from the Lone Star State.

Georgia, home to the Atlanta Falcons, was next with 14.3 percent, followed by Massachusetts with 13.9 percent, California with 6 percent, and New York with 4 percent. People from 15 countries have purchased tickets; 9 percent of sales came from international travelers.

The current average ticket price for the event is estimated at $4,943, an 9 percent decrease from last year. The cheapest ticket on StubHub at the moment is $2,550.

Some of the most expensive tickets are selling for more than $15,000.

StubHub also looked at how ticket demand and prices have changed over the years. Last year, the average price for a ticket to the Super Bowl was $4,512 (Panthers vs. Broncos), up from $4,222 in 2015 (Patriots vs. SeaHawks). In 2014 (Seahawks vs. Broncos) and 2013 (Ravens vs. 49ers), however, the average prices were much cheaper, at around $2,500.
