I’m sure a lot of people have had Labor Day weekend circled on their schedule for quite some time, but I’ve actually had my eyes set on next weekend.

Next weekend isn’t a three day holiday, so you might be asking why I would be so excited for just another Saturday and Sunday in September. Well folks, it’s not just any weekend. It’s the opening weekend for NFL football.

I’ve been counting down the days until the NFL comes back, and we are now only three days away from a Thursday Night matchup (Chiefs-Lions), and six days away from “7 hours of commercial free football.” There’s a pretty large contingent across the country that’s pretty excited about the return of the NFL.

Now I usually just choose to watch the football games from the comfort of my couch with my (rather pricey) NFL Sunday Ticket and RedZone subscription. However, a lot of fans love to cheer on their home team squad in person and attend the games, or even make a road trip out of it and travel to see their respective teams play.

If you’ve bought really any ticket in the past decade, you probably know how damn expensive going to live events has gotten. You might think you are getting a deal on tickets when you click on them, but that’s before ticket sellers tack on service fees, stadium fees, transaction fees, and what-the-hell-are-you-gonna-do-about-it fees.

Betting.com analyzed how expensive it is for the average NFL fan to just get in the stadium, and on average, people are spending around $110 per ticket to cheer on their favorite football team. However, as you may know, getting into the stadium is really just half of the financial battle…

Concession prices at sporting events have been soaring into the sky like a hail-mary pass in recent years. Even if you get a good deal on tickets, once you get to your seat and have to face the “stadium tax” on food and beverages, you may wish you had snuck in some sandwiches, or even just stayed at home.

Thanks to Betting.com though, we now know some specific price points on NFL stadiums, and have lists of the “Top 5 Most Expensive Stadiums for Hot Dogs and Beer” as well as the “Top 5 Cheapest Stadiums for Hot Dogs and Beer.”
