How Much Does it Cost to Attend an Edmonton Oilers Game?

Are you a fan of the Edmonton Oilers NHL team? If you’ve been watching the games from your home television set or going to a local sports bar to watch them play, you could be at the game in person taking in all the excitement first hand. It’s not really that expensive to go to a live game and get in on the fun and the good food without breaking the bank. We tallied the amount of money that an average fan spends when they attend a live game at Rogers Place in Edmonton. Here is what we found out about parking, ticket and concession prices.

The cost of tickets is moderate

The average Oilers fan spends $60.88 on the price of a single ticket to get a comfortable seat with a decent view of the game. The current cost of tickets starts at $54.79 and the cost goes up all the way to $861.99 for the premium seats in the best location. Not many people opt for the higher priced tickets. The most popular seats after the $60.88 are the ones that cost $120 and they give spectators a better view of the game that is closer to the action. Actually, almost all of the seats in the arena offer a decent view of the excitement.

Parking costs aren’t that bad either

Most fans prefer to park their cars or trucks at Rogers Place parking stalls. There are 700 spaces available and the cost is very reasonable at just $15 per space. This is a lot less than you would pay to go watch an NFL game at one of the popular stadiums. The costs for those parking spaces can go all the way up to $60 and more. There are also some spots available if you prefer to arrive really early and try for the street parking spots, but these fill up quickly on game day so unless you’re a early bird, the odds of securing one of these spaces is remote. There are also parking areas designated for game day within a few blocks of Rogers Place, but it’s a lot more convenient to be close to your vehicle when the game is over or if you need to return to retrieve something that you forgot there. If you want to cut the cost of parking yet further, you could split the cost with a buddy and pay just $7.50.

Concessions aren’t that much either

You’ll pay less for concessions at Rogers Place than you would at a high end restaurant. Having said this, we all know that the cost of stadium food is more expensive than the average burger place or convenience store. Bottled water costs $5 and you can get other non-alcoholic beverages from $5.50 up to $7.00. The cost of beer starts at $10 and goes up to 12 for certain domestics with the most expensive premium brews going for as much as $18 depending on the vendor, the brand and the size. You can still eat one of the meals offered by their vendors for anywhere from $8 to $15 depending on what you order. There are a lot of choices that range from traditional stadium fare to specialty foods. The average an spends about $24 on beer and $15 on food for a total of $39 but there are a lot of options so the total cost depends on what you want to eat and drink and how much you want to spend.

The total cost in affordable

Attending an Edmonton Oilers game at Rogers Center isn’t the most expensive form of entertainment and it certainly is exciting. The average fan will spend $39 for food and drinks, $15 for parking and $60.88 for a ticket for a total of just under $115. Of course you can customize your own package and cut the cost down further or you can spend more if you want to go with a higher priced seating area or enjoy more expensive food and drinks while you’re there. There are a lot of different ways to plan your game day, but the main thing is to get there so you an enjoy the thrill of a live Hockey match.
