A Philadelphia Eagles game at Lincoln Financial Field is a pretty fair value, as far as NFL stadiums go.

The average face value Eagles ticket in 2016 was 10th-highest, FCI (Fan Cost Index), 12th.

More importantly to non-season ticket holders, the (initial) average cost on the secondary market ranked 11th in 2015 and 12th in 2016. For the 2017 season, it’s 16th.

While all may seem well in the land of the cheese steak, this is still the NFL after all, so there will be no shortage of ways to spend more than you want - or have to.

So if you want to keep your game day expenses at the sane level, keep reading to find out what you should take advantage of, and what to avoid, in and around the Philadelphia Eagles stadium.

Do’s & don’ts for saving money at Lincoln Financial Field


Do take advantage of standing room only tickets. Ok, it’s standing room only, but before you dismiss the thought, consider this: the cheapest SRO ticket, based on the list price (as of 5/27/17) from 8 major ticket brokers & 3 ticket search engines, averages $115 for the season.

That figure is $133 less than the initial 2017 average cost of an Eagles home game ticket on the secondary market (according to TicketIQ). So yes, you’ll have to stand, and the view is less than optimal , but the savings equate to a Nike NFL Game jersey or even tickets to another game, just sayin’

Don’t bother with this if you’re taking a date or small children to the game. Instead, stick with the regular upper deck seating. The cheapest tickets, on average, are only about 15% more than standing room prices.


Lincoln Financial Field parking encompasses all of the available spaces in the sports complex, which includes Citizens Bank Park & Wells Fargo Center, in addition to nearby 350-acre FDR Park. You would think that, with all of these spaces, finding a spot at a reasonable price would be a snap.

Good luck with that. Pre-paid parking passes are $40, but are only available to season ticket holders. For everyone else, it’s either take your chances at the gate or overpay a ticket broker. If you’re going to go the ticket broker route, do examine the data below. As with NFL ticket prices, parking passes can also vary wildly in cost from broker to broker.

Do the Taxi Crab. What is the Taxi Crab? It’s a free shuttle to the Linc (and back) , courtesy of Chickie’s & Pete’s Sports Bar, where valet parking costs just $25.

Don’t think you’re going to park for free at FDR Park. That used to be the case.

Don’t bother with Xfinity Live! parking - the cost is $50, unless you’re going to arrive one hour after the game starts, in which case it’s free.

Here are a couple of resources you might want to check out - both of them mention free parking, but it’s probably too good to be true.
