Good and Bad News For Your Wallet When You Attend Sixers Games
We all know the cost of attending sporting events has continued to rise in the last couple of decades. The combined cost of tickets, parking, plus food and drink can reach over $300 for many people attending professional sporting events.
The website bookies.com broke down how much it would cost to attend NBA Home games by the following criteria: Price of Cheapest Tickets for four people, Cost of Parking, Price of Two Beers, Cost of Two Sodas, and the Price of Four Hot Dogs. Then they totaled up the costs of all five categories and ranked all the NBA Franchises.
The good news for 76ers' fans is that to attend a Philadelphia Home Game the tickets and parking costs less than the average NBA Game. The Cheapest Tickets for four people to go to a Sixers Home game is $210 dollars and Parking is $5 dollars less than the NBA Average. In fact, the most expensive parking at NBA Home Games is at Brooklyn Nets ($66.50) and Boston Celtics ($50.45) Games with the Oklahoma City Thunder ($42.33) not far behind.
But the Bad News for 76ers' fans is that you are paying more for concessions than many other NBA Fans. The Cost of Two Sodas are higher than the NBA Average ($15 vs $13) and the Cost of Four Hot Dogs is the same as the league average cost ($24). While Sixers fans are not paying the most egregious prices for concessions (Knicks Home Games Charge $36 to get Four Hot Dogs and Warriors Home Games Charge $38 for Two Beers), the average cost to attend a Philadelphia Home Game is costing at least $291 for four people to attend.
So the next time you plan to attend an NBA Game, make sure you have a few hundred dollars in disposable income available or you will go home broke.
