Beer and Hot Dog Prices at NFL Games

Each 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 which team prevails in the Super Bowl on Feb. 12, one thing is for sure — one of them is a much bigger winner when it comes to saving fans money.

Arizona Cardinals | State Farm Stadium

  • Price of a Beer: $7
  • Price of a Hot Dog: $4.75

Arizona remains one of the cheapest places to catch an NFL game, and it shows at the concession stand. Though the price of beer went up 50 cents from 2021, it's still less than the average league price, and the team's stadium remains one of only seven among the NFL's 32 teams that features a sub-$5 dog.

  • Price of a Beer: $11.50
  • Price of a Hot Dog: $6.75

Miami Dolphins | Hard Rock Stadium

  • Price of a Beer: $5
  • Price of a Hot Dog: $4

Both beer and hot dogs got less expensive at Hard Rock Stadium this season, something that the team's fans can love just as much as its winning record. That helps keep it one of the cheapest teams to see.

MetLife Stadium

New York Jets | MetLife Stadium

  • Price of a Beer: $5
  • Price of a Hot Dog: $6

The 2021 New York Jets were impossibly bad even by Jets' standards, but the good news is the price of a beer and hot dog didn't change this season. Beer sets you back only a fiver, while a dog is a buck more.

New Era Field

Buffalo Bills | New Era Field

  • Price of a Beer: $11.50
  • Price of a Hot Dog: $7.25

Both the price of a beer and hot dog went up in 2022 at Bills' games. Considering the beer is 20 ounces, the cost per ounce is exactly the league average, despite the initial sticker shock.

Indianapolis Colts | Lucas Oil Stadium

  • Price of a Beer: $8
  • Price of a Hot Dog: $5.75

Tennessee Titans | Nissan Stadium

  • Price of a Beer: $10.50
  • Price of a Hot Dog: $6

Tennessee is still one of the 10 cheapest teams to see in football — but no thanks to concession prices. Both are above the league average, though neither one increased for the 2022 season.

Atlanta Falcons | Mercedes-Benz Stadium

  • Price of a Beer: $5

Carolina Panthers | Bank of America Stadium

  • Price of a Beer: $9.99
  • Price of a Hot Dog: $5.99

Panthers fans got a break on beer of 51 cents this year, but hot dogs almost doubled in price from just $3 in 2021. Can't win them all — just like the team's lackluster 2022 season so far.

Los Angeles Chargers | SoFi Stadium

  • Price of a Beer: $11
  • Price of a Hot Dog: $8

Though the price of a beer stayed the same for Chargers fans this season, it's only a 12-ounce cup, making it tied for the most expensive brew per ounce. The hot dog is tied for most expensive in the league as well. Good thing the team has the cheapest ticket prices to make up the difference.

Kansas City Chiefs | Arrowhead Stadium

  • Price of a Beer: $9
  • Price of a Hot Dog: $5

  • Price of a Beer: $10.50
  • Price of a Hot Dog: $6.75

A beer costs 50 cents more this season at a Vikings game, while a frank went up 25 cents. The beer is a good deal despite the price tag, considering fans get a 20-ounce pour, the stadium equivalent of a large.

  • Price of a Hot Dog: $3

Prices for both a brew and a dog plummeted at MetLife Stadium in 2022. Beer fell $6 to well below the league average, while a hot dog costs $3.50 less than last season. Thanks to the high price of tickets, though, the Giants are still the ninth most expensive team to see.

The prices of a cold one and a hot dog in Tampa Bay went up by 50 cents this season, the same increase as last season. Overall, Tampa's Fan Cost index score rose 12.7% from last season, the largest increase in the league. Must be the Tom Brady effect.

In terms of overall costs of taking the family to a game, the Patriots are the second-most expensive team in the NFL. But the high cost can't be blamed on the 20-ounce beers that go for $10.50 and hot dogs that are cheaper than the $5.87 league average.
