We all know it's not cheap to go to a football game. So how expensive is it across the country, and how does New York rank?

That's the answer that GOBankingRates answered in a study of the average costs for two people to attend an NFL football game. According to a press release, this is what they used as criteria:

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

The Giants have the most expensive ticket in the game, but interestingly--and this might be a huge surprise--the Giants and Jets actually have the lowest-priced beers. Here's how it breaks down:

New York Giants Game at MetLife Stadium: $246.67

  • Ticket price: $94.33
  • Price for a beer: $5
  • Price for a soft drink: $3
  • Price for a hot dog: $6
  • Parking: $30

New York Jets Game at MetLife Stadium: $193.67

  • Ticket price: $70.33
  • Price for a beer: $5
  • Price for a soft drink: $3
  • Price for a hot dog: $6
  • Parking: $25

Yep, it actually costs $53 more to go to a Giants game according to those criteria above than it does to go to a Jets game. Of course, this is the opportunity for Giants fans to declare that it's because they've actually won Super Bowls since the 60s, etc. etc., so I'm just going to leave this info here and get out before it gets ugly.

Here's a pretty striking statistic:

  • "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 ($75.00)"

Absolutely insane. Check out the entire article here.
