Chicken and Fries Basket Metlife Stadium

We’re well into football season, and there is nothing fans love more than the classic combo of hot dogs and beer. At the supermarketthese items are always quite affordable—a mass market six pack and an 8 pack of sausages it won’t bother you much. But in a sports arena, it’s a whole different ball game. (pun intended), since you are paying a premium for the general live football experience, concessions and all. So how expensive is food at an NFL game? these days?

How much will a hot dog cost? you in a football play?

Some recently published data of New Jersey gambling site lists the least expensive and most expensive concession staples at every NFL stadium in the United States. Prices can vary greatly depending on where you are. Let’s start with the cheapest stadium. hot dogs in the field:

  • Atlanta Falcons, $2.00
  • Baltimore Ravens, $3.00
  • Carolina Panthers, $3.00
  • Arizona Cardinals, $4.50
  • New England Patriots, $4.50

If you’re at a football game in Atlanta at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, congratulations, you won’t waste an arm and a leg. That is thanks to the long practice of The Atlanta Falcons’ “fan-friendly” pricing strategywhere hot dogs are only $2 and beer is only $5. It’s a pretty crowd-pleasing deal.

Elsewhere, However, the concessions they can be quite expensive. Here are the top five hottest faces dogs in NFL stadiums:

  • Los Angeles Rams, $8.00
  • Las Vegas Raiders, $8.00
  • LA Chargers, $8.00
  • Chicago Bears, $7.25
  • Buffalo Bills, $7.00

In Los Angeles and Las Vegaswill pay four times as much for a basic hot dog like you would in Atlanta. And while the chicago hot dog it’s a little less gougeI’m disappointed to see that our local dog is still near the top at an amazing price $7.25. And at Highmark Stadium, where the Buffalo Bills play, you’ll still pay a hefty $7 per dog. A simple hot dog that you add your own seasonings to from pump handle tubs.

How much will a beer cost you at an NFL game?

Beer prices can also vary wildly by location, and even within the stadium, depending on which brewery you choose. curiouslyeven if your stadium sells an exorbitantly expensive hot dog, which not necessarily say beer prices correlation. Are here Cheapest beer prices among all NFL football stadiums:

  • Atlanta Falcons, $5.00
  • New York Jets, $5.00
  • Detroit Lions, $5.00
  • Cincinnati Bengals, $5.27
  • Houston Texans, $6.00

The cheapest price of beer goes back to the Atlanta Falcons (which is why “fan-friendly pricing”). I bet falcons fans leave the stadium pretty buzzed though maybe the cheap hot dogs will help them soak up the beer. The Jets and Lions also tie at $5, while the Bengals and Texans don’t get much more expensive than that. However, the most expensive beer prices are quite painful to watch:

  • Washington Commanders, $14.00
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers, $11.00
  • Jacksonville Jaguars, $11.50
  • New Orleans Saints, $11.50
  • San Francisco 49ers, $11.50

i am surprised by this results. In the first place, he didn’t know that it was possible for a beer to cost $14, even at a football game. Maybe some kind of craft beer, but notes that these prices are for “regular beer”, which we can assume is a mass market beer. Note that the fact that the price of hot dogs is quite high at some of these stadiums does not directly correlate to the beer prices, as none of the expensive beer stadiums are the same. the ones that sell expensive hot dogs.

With prices like these, it’s no wonder the study says three in 10 people have reported stolen food and drink. to the stadiums for a match. Interestingly, only 14% of those surveyed said that the item they slipped it was alcohol; the majority of people who smuggled things into a stadium brought food, 52%, while 34% admitted to having brought both food and alcohol. I mean, $14 for a beer would make me want to smuggle some, too.

On average, fans spend $58 on concessions per game, which is particularly painful when added to the cost of the ticket itself, and perhaps parking.. But hey there is always follow upsomething that we know a little about. Although I have to saythat There really is something magical about a stadium beer and a hot dog. You may want to savor a few of them a bit more slowly before getting up and having the next one.
