While some NFL stadiums cater to their fans with affordable tickets and food prices, others are notorious for some pretty steep charges. looked at the following five factors to determine how much it costs, on average, for two people to attend a home game for 31 NFL teams:

  • Two tickets
  • Two hot dogs
  • Two beers
  • Two soft drinks
  • Parking

The study found that a day spent watching a Washington Redskins game at FedEx Field will cost $272.17 for two people, more than twice as much as a Cincinnati Bengals game at Paul Brown Stadium ($131.93).

Stand-Out Study Insights:

  • You could buy two game tickets to a Buffalo Bills game at Ralph Wilson Stadium ($72.66) for less than the cost of parking at a Dallas Cowboys game at AT&T stadium ($75).
  • While hot dogs at a Seattle Seahawks home game are half the price of those at a Detroit Lions home game, expect to pay almost five times more for parking at the Seahawk's CenturyLink field.
  • Beer prices are similar in Oakland and San Francisco, but a 49ers ticket will cost you more than twice as much as a Raiders ticket.

"Going to a football game on a Sunday is the equivalent of going to church for some fans," said Kristen Bonner, lead researcher on the GOBankingRates study. "The cost of these games, however, is something that fans have to think about and, in some cases, budget for in advance. Luckily, there are stadiums that make the experience more affordable so fans can return for more games throughout the season."

Methodology: surveyed five costs of attending a football game at all 31 National Football League stadiums: (1) ticket prices, calculated by averaging the cost per game for the three cheapest season ticket prices advertised on the football team's official NFL site; (2) parking, (3) beer, (4) soft drink and (5) hot dog prices, as reported in the September 2015 Team Marketing Report. To find the cost of attending a game, GOBankingRates assumed two guests and calculated the total cost of two tickets, two hot dogs, two beers and one parking spot. Stadiums were ranked by this amount to find the least and most expensive stadiums for NFL fans attending a game.
