It’s a dubious honor for the San Francisco 49ers' new home: The brand new $1.2 billion Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara has been deemed the most expensive NFL venue in terms of what a family of four can expect to spend.
The latest NFL Fan Cost Index from Team Marketing shows that a family of four will have to shell out about $640 to go to a 49ers game at Levi's Stadium. That includes four average-priced tickets, parking, two programs, two beers, two hats, four sodas and four hot dogs.
The 49ers’ cheapest beer – brace yourself – is $10.25 (20 ounces), the most expensive in the NFL.
The average price for a 49ers ticket jumped 40 percent since last year -- to $117. That's the second-highest in the league -- behind only the New England Patriots, whose average ticket price is $122.
"Rising to the top shouldn't come as a surprise to 49ers fans, as the new Levi's Stadium -- which had personal seat licenses ranging from $2,000 to $80,000 per seat -- was the key contributor to the rise," ESPN said of the Fan Cost Index report.
The 2014 average NFL ticket is $84.43, a 3.5 percent increase from last season.
Which team has the cheapest ticket on average? The Cleveland Browns, at $54.20 a pop.
