Beer & Hot Dog Prices at NFL Games

Every year, sports business data firm Team Marketing Report releases its NFL Fan Cost Index, which gauges what it costs a family of four to attend a stadium game. It looks at ticket prices, parking, merchandise, and — for the focus of this analysis — the cost of beer and hot dogs at every stadium for all 32 NFL teams. And regardless of whether the Cincinnati Bengals or the Los Angeles Rams prevail in the Super Bowl, one thing is for sure — one of them is a much bigger winner when it comes to saving fans money.
