How Fans Fuel Major League Concessions Prices
PORTLAND, Ore. (TheStreet) -- The next time you feel like going on a rant about how expensive beer, soda or food are at sporting events, just realize that diatribe is only effective if you listen to it yourself.
We've tried to tell you where the most expensive and cheapest beers in the National Football League are, we warned you about the highest beer prices in Major League Baseball. None of it kept you away from marked-up stadium pricing.
In fact, according to Team Marketing Report, you're still hitting the concession counter regularly. A TMR survey indicates that despite 66.9% of sports fans considering concessions "hit or miss" and 10% feeling they're outright "bad," only 0.7% of you spend no money on concessions when you head to the game.
You're also doing little or nothing to cut down on those dogs, bratwurst, nachos and Sprites, either. Only 32.3% of fans surveyed tailgate before the game. We realize fewer venues have adequate facilities for open-air cookouts and keg parties, but almost 68% actually take a pass? C'mon.
