Because if you don’t know how much you should be spending, then you’re probably losing money.

How much? Well, consider that the majority of NFL fans don’t fully consider their options, especially when it comes to tickets.

And in a recent poll, less than 40% did any research before purchasing their tickets… that’s why there are so many ticket broker sites just waiting to take your hard-earned cash.

But as you’ll find out, a little research can save you a lot of money… that’s why there are sites like TiqIQ that provide real time data on NFL ticket prices.

So you can save hundreds of dollars a year, and - wait for it -- even thousands, over the course of a lifetime, on just tickets alone.

And speaking of tickets…

“… only 40% of NFL fans research before they buy tickets”

How much does it really cost to attend a football game?

In 2015 it was $480.89 for a family of 4, according to Team Marketing Report’s Fan Cost Index.

The Real Costs for an NFL Football Fan...
That’s nearly half a week’s paycheck for a household earning a median income to attend a single game.

But those figures only tell part of the story because:

  • The cost of tickets and parking passes are based upon their face value, but the majority of fans have to pay the secondary market prices, and…

  • It assumes that 50% of the ticket holders are children. In reality there are more adults in attendance than children, so the average fan is going to consume more than the base figures of 1 soft drink, 1 hot dog, & .5 beers.

So in reality, the family of 4 is more likely to use more than 90% of that paycheck. Call it the Real Cost Index.

And it’s not likely to change any time soon:

As you can see, NFL ticket prices (resale), and correspondingly, the costs of being an NFL football fan have increased at a higher rate than a lot of other things over the last 10 years..

It’s no wonder that attendance at NFL stadiums has declined 3 straight years and is at its lowest since 19981, despite an increase in popularity.

But it doesn’t have to be that way… because like I said, a little research can save you a lot of cash, so you can begin by reading up on NFL tickets here.

More ways to save on NFL football

Saving money on tickets is just the start. There's also…
  • Parking.   Have you ever mistaken a broker’s parking pass listing for a game ticket because the price was so similar? That’s right, a parking pass can often cost nearly as much as a ticket to the game, so consider off-site parking and save big.

  • Tailgating.   If you spent a bundle on parking, then the last thing you need is to shell out another $200 on your tailgate party2. Spending a fraction of that is just a few tips away.

  • NFL on TV.   Can’t make it to the game? You have your reasons. For 300 bucks, you also have NFL Sunday Ticket. If you don’t want to spend that much, you can always watch NFL football online and save.
