How much does the average fan spend at a football game?

I was debating this question with some of the guys at work today and we had a wide variety of answers. What would you say is the average amount spent on food/drink/merchandise by the average fan? Don't take into consideration the ticket prices or parking, just what is spent once inside the gates.

Based off of attendance numbers, we were trying to determine the percentage of money received from sales vs. amount taken in from tickets.

Between my wife and I we generally have 8-10 beers so that's between $60-$75 throw in popcorn or nachos for another $5 or so which puts us around the $80 mark inside.

I tailgate beforehand, so I get most of my eating & drinking in without having to waste money on $8 beers and nasty concession stand food. I might spend $10 once I step inside the Dome, if that.

I tailgate pretty extensively also, so I usually have 2 maybe 3 beers inside. Depends on if I have to drive afterward. I try to eat plenty at the tailgate party.

I am more of a eat before, drink before, drink during, drink afterwards kind of guy. I limit my drinking during the game because I hate missing any of the game for bathroom breaks.

Reminds me of the Saints/Vikings game back in 2002 when Culpepper walked in the 2 pt conversion to win the game. My wife, girlfriend back then, had to use the pisser before the beginning of the second half and I begged her to hurry so we didn't miss the kick off. She took longer than I expected and I had to listen to the crowd go nuts as Michael Lewis ran back the kick for a TD. She is lucky I didn't end the relationship right then and there!

Damn I guess my wife is right, I do spend too much money. I can't seem to get out of there for less than $50. usually it's closer to $100

I do the same.

My real interest is what you think everyone else spends. I have some friends that spend $0 and are season ticket holders. Others that spend over $100 every game.

Eat a good meal before going to the Dome because the prices are unreal. Coke and bag of peanuts is about it once at the game ... usually too nervous to eat much food once the game starts.

For Saturday, how about a 38-13 snoozer for a change of pace. I'll take it.

I'd say average is about $40. My average is closer to $50-60, depending on if I go with a friend or my wife. I will drink 4 or 5 beers while in the dome regardless, so that's about $45 with tip every time. If my wife is with me we will spend about $70 on beer, plus my wife always get a few things to eat for us (which I hardly ever do) so that would be another $15-20. So my range is from about $45-90.
