Going to an NFL game can be costly, just ask Tom Brady. A recent study from gambling guide NJ.Bet took a look at how much it costs to eat at professional football stadiums across the country, as well as what people are eating.
According to the study, hot dogs are the concession of choice for most fans. Other favorites include nachos, beer, pretzels and chicken tenders, respectively. Other choices include french fries, cheeseburgers, brats, hamburgers and popcorn.
Not surprisingly, Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium and Las Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium tops the list for the most expensive hot dog at $8 a pop. Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium has the cheapest hot dog at $2.
When it comes to beer, FedExField has the most expensive beer at $14.50 (as a long-suffering Commanders fan, I can say it’s worth it). Conversely, Mercedes-Benz Stadium also has the cheapest beer at $5, which helps wash down those hot dogs.
Lastly, soda drinkers at Cincinnati’s Paycor Stadium have to pay the most for a “pop” at $6.35. The cheapest soda – at $2 – is at, you guessed it, Mercedes-Benz Stadium. It’s sort of ironic that a stadium sponsored by a luxury automobile has such cost-effective options.
The study also found that, on average, fans are spending almost $60 on food at a game. So, it only makes sense that 30% of fans also admit to sneaking food into a game.
