U.S. sports leagues ticket prices

The average ticket price for games in the major North American sports leagues varies from league to league and also within the leagues. On average, according to research by Team Marketing Report, attending a National Football League game was the most expensive with average ticket prices amounting to 84.43 U.S. dollars in 2014. Tickets to games of the NHL cost 61.01 U.S. dollars on average, tickets to NBA games sold for around 51 U.S. dollars. Major League Baseball had the lowest average ticket prices with an average ticket price of 27.48 U.S. dollars.

Based on the average ticket price, attending a New England Patriots’ game was the most expensive live-experience in the NFL with almost 122 U.S. dollars being charged per ticket. Tickets to Cleveland Browns games on the other hand were the least expensive with an average price of 54.2 U.S. dollars.
Compared to the NFL the team with the highest average ticket price in baseball (2013) the Boston Red Sox still charged less than the Cleveland Browns with an average of 53.38 U.S. dollars. In comparing these ticket prices the number of games played need to be taken into consideration. While MLB teams play 81 home games, teams of the NFL only have eight home games from which to generate ticketing revenue.

In the National Basketball Association the New York Knicks had the highest average ticket price in the 2013/14 season with an average price of 129.38 U.S. dollars per ticket. About 4.8 times higher than the average ticket price of the New Orleans Pelicans which had the leagues cheapest tickets with an average price of 26.87 U.S. dollars.

Supplementary notes
* The average ticket price represents a weighted average of season ticket prices for general seating categories, determined by factoring in the tickets in each price range as a percentage of the total number of seats in each ballpark. Premium seating (tickets that come with at least one added amenity) are not included in the ticket average. Luxury suites are also excluded from the survey. Season-ticket pricing is used for any team that offers some or all tickets at lower prices for customers who buy season tickets.
