                                                              As America laments the loss of the postseason for hockey and basketball — and possibly the entire season for baseball — one hope remains alive for the rabid sports fan. There’s no certainty that America will have declared it safe to hold public events by September, but football fans are staying optimistic. There’s hope that, come this fall, the rising excitement of the gridiron will once again return the sports world to something close to normal.

                                                              The additional good news: Unless you made a point of seeing a lot of games in January and February, a hefty portion of your annual budget for live sporting events should remain untouched. And that’s good, because going to an NFL game is not cheap. Granted, the owners could offer to remedy that for the millions of fans who are currently unemployed and struggling with their finances. But, you know, don’t hold your breath. Back in reality, last year’s NFL season cost the average fan over $100 just to get into a stadium. And a family of four going with some hot dogs, sodas and a beer or two for mom and dad? Try about $500.

                                                              To help you plan ahead for your next football outing — whenever that may be — GOBankingRates compiled the average ticket and concessions prices for every NFL team from Team Marketing Report’s 2019 Fan Cost Index. The study also provides calculations on what it’ll cost the average individual, couple and family of four to spend an afternoon at each stadium. Take a look and see if your favorite team is among those that really puts the screws to its fans.

                                                              Methodology: GOBankingRates used Team Marketing Report’s 2019 Fan Cost Index report to calculate the estimated total cost for a single fan, a couple and a family of four to attend one game at each NFL stadium. These estimated costs include one standard ticket, one soda and one hot dog for each attendee; one beer for each attendee except the two children assumed in the model for a family of four; and parking. GOBankingRates ranked each team’s stadium by its total estimated cost of attendance for one fan, with the No. 1 stadium being the most expensive. GOBankingRates provided average 2019 home game attendance from ESPN, total capacity from each stadium’s website and the Google review rating for each stadium as supplemental information. All data was collected on and up to date as of March 19, 2020.
