Concession stand prices in major North American sports leagues

In its annual survey of concession stand prices in the major professional sports leagues in North America, Team Marketing Report (TMR) examines and compares the sales prices of beer, hot dogs and soft drinks.
Comparing average prices of the four major leagues (NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL), calculated by taking into account all teams, customers pay the most for food and drinks at games of the National Football League. A beer costs 7.28 U.S. dollars on average at an NFL game, a hot dog 4.84 U.S. dollars and a soft drink 4.57 U.S. dollars in the 2012 season.

At games of the National Basketball Association (2012/13 season) fans pay the second-most on average for concession-stand products with 7.08 U.S. dollars for a beer, 4.82 U.S. dollars for a hot dog and 4.17 U.S. dollars for a soft drink. In the NHL these products are just slightly cheaper with an average of 7.07 U.S. dollars for a beer, 4.48 U.S. dollars for a hot dog and 4.06 U.S. dollars for a soft drink (2012/13 season). Concessionaires at Major League Baseball games (2013 season) charge the least for their products with average of 6.09 U.S. dollars (beer), 4.14 (hot dog) and 3.67 (soft drink).

According to TMR beer is the most expensive at games of the New York Knicks and of the New York Islanders, who both sell beer for 9.50 U.S. dollars at their arena concession stands. The most expensive hot dog is selling at games of the New York Islanders with 6.50 U.S. dollars per hot dog.
