Are you thinking about attending a Philadelphia Eagles game this season? If you're tired of watching the game from your couch or the local sports bar, you can go see it live for not that much. If you're wondering how much it will cost you in total, we have the answers. To make sure that you set aside enough to have an enjoyable time, we've identified what the average fan spends for a single game at Lincoln Field in Philadelphia. We've figured in the cost of a ticket, parking, and concessions so you can enjoy a meal and a few beverages while you're there.
Ticket prices are reasonable
When you go to the official Philadelphia Eagles to buy a ticket, you'll find them in a range of prices, depending on the game and where it's being held. On average, the ticket prices cost between $43 and they go all the way up to $1,564. The average fan will pay $105.69 per ticket in 2018. This will give you a decent seat with a good view of the game. How much you decide to spend on a ticket is up to you though. Some prefer to go with premium seats while others will go with the least expensive. Tickets are priced to make sure that anyone who wants to see a game live can do so.
Parking costs aren't that bad
Another consideration to make when setting a budget to take in an Eagles game is parking. The cost to park at Lincoln Field is reasonable, when compared to some other stadiums. You can park inside where you'll have close and easy access to your car before, during and after the game for just $40. If you're driving an oversized vehicle such as an RV, the parking spaces are $80 on game day. The average fan will spend $40 for parking. There are plenty of other places to park on the way to the game. If you park at one of the other lots not associated with the stadium you can find parking for as low as $10 to $15, but you're going to have to walk to the field for between a mile to a half mile. If you don't mind the walk, this is one way to save on parking. A good rule of thumb to observe is that the closer you get to the field, the higher the parking. Some of the closer lots charge between $20 to $40. One way to enjoy the convenience of field parking while saving money is to carpool with a buddy and split the cost.
Concessions won't break the bank
Any time you buy food at an NFL stadium, the prices are going to be a lot higher than at the average sports bar or fast food restaurant. Although some of the vendors charge high prices for foods and beverages, there are some that have some decent deals on stadium food. You can get a hot dog for $5.50 and soft drinks are $5.25 a bottle. If you enjoy having a brew while watching the game, the cost for a 12-ounce beer is $9.00. The vendors at the field have a big selection of different foods to choose from. You'll find beverages from water to sodas, draft beer and specialty brews.
The average cost of attending a Philadelphia Eagles game
With all things considered, the average cost of attending an Eagles home game costs $174.50. This includes the cost of a ticket, parking at the field, two hot dogs and two beers. Of course, this is just an average figure, but now that you have an idea of what the average costs are you can build your own game day plan and if you're on a budget, you can bring this figure down to as low as $78 and still enjoy a beer and a hot dog while you're watching your favorite team play. The cost of attending an Eagles game isn't that bad. We must advise you that once you enter the stadium vendor area, the smell of the stadium food is hard to resist so you'll probably want to bring along some extra cash. They offer a huge selection of great foods and when you're at a game, everything seems to smell better and offer a more satisfying taste.
