MLB average ticket prices - additional information
During the 2014 MLB season, the league-wide average ticket price was just under 28 U.S. dollars. This marks an increase of over 5 U.S. dollars from the average price in the 2007 season. The team with the highest average ticket prices in the 2014 season was the Boston Red Sox, whose tickets retailed at an average price of 52.32 U.S. dollars. The cheapest average tickets in the league could be found at the San Diego Padres, who sold their tickets at an average of 16.37 U.S. dollars.
According to the Fan Cost Index, which calculates the cost of taking a family to an MLB game, the Red Sox also provided the most expensive day out in 2014. A family of four would spend an average of over 350 U.S. dollars on tickets, refreshments, and merchandise at Fenway Park, whereas comparative expenditure at the Arizona Diamondbacks stood at 126.89 U.S. dollars.
As a result, the Boston Red Sox were able to announce their highest revenue to-date of 336 million U.S. dollars at the end of the 2013 season, second only to the New York Yankees, who generated revenue of 471 million U.S. dollars. The Red Sox’s gate receipts amounted to almost 180 million U.S. dollars whilst the Yankees generated 246 million U.S. dollars through ticket sales. This meant that the Red Sox generated 53.5 percent of their total revenue from ticketing and the gate receipts at the Yankees amounted to 52.2 percent of the team's revenue.
Concession stand prices also vary greatly within the MLB, with a fan at a Miami Marlins game having to pay twice the price for a beer than a fan attending an Arizona Diamondbacks or a Cleveland Indians game. Furthermore, a hot dog purchased at the Great American Ball Park, home to the Cincinnati Reds, cost 1 U.S. dollar in the 2014 seasons whereas the same snack bought at a New York Mets game would set a fan back 6.25 U.S. dollars.
