FARE CATCHES

Football season is underway, and if you're planning to head to a game this year, it's going to cost you more than just the price of the ticket. It's not an NFL game without beer and hot dogs, but the price you pay to shovel it in depends on the stadium where you're watching. Many teams are trying offset high ticket prices with cheaper refreshments like $5 beers. Find out how your team holds up to the 2018 league average of $8.17 for a draft beer and $5.23 for a hot dog, according to data provided by Team Marketing Report.
