New England Patriots face the biggest outlay when attending home games according to a new survey of NFL teams.
Supporters of the Pats – the dominant team in the American football league in recent years – have to fork out $1,371 per game when match tickets and hotel stays are taken into account.
A survey by Cheaphotels.org found that fans would pay $804 for two side-by-side seats and $567 for two nights at a 3-star or above hotel in Boston. The website analysed data from the first five home games of the new season.
In second place on $1,337 were the Green Bay Packers, with tickets at just $510, but a hotel in Green Bay, Wisconsin costing a mighty $827. Super Bowl champions Philadelphia Eagles fans were in third with fans paying $612 for match tickets and $389 for a hotel.
The cheapest tickets were for the Cincinnati Bengals at $142 – almost $700 less than the Patriots.
A Cheaphotels.org spokesperson said: “If you’re looking to join a fanbase with affordability in mind, the Buffalo Bills, New York Jets and Indianapolis Colts offer the most affordable game day experiences. The total cost of two home game tickets and two nights’ accommodation for each team is less than $525.”
