I haven't been to games in Dallas and Vegas, but you're absolutely right that the stadiums are stand alone attractions. In Vegas, the location is a bit puzzling. It's very close to the Strip, but it's on the other side of Interstate 15 across from Mandalay Bay, so if you're staying on the strip, you have to at least Uber to get to the stadium. I walked around Jerry's World and it took literally 35 minutes to make one pass around that place. Just massive. 

 

But the correstest (yes, I make up words) thing you said is there is nothing like a Bills home game!!!

 

The stadium in Vegas is less than a mile and only a 12-15 minute walk from Mandalay Bay,  depending on the traffic at the two intersections you have to cross to get to the walkway over 15.   That's not a bad walk.      Not sure if they could have made it a lot more convenient and still have been able to handle traffic and have the access to 15 and parking capacity.   The Hockey arena is right behind NYNY but the parking is a nightmare on game night because they share the casino garage for parking and the bottleneck is incredible because that garage isn't designed to handle that volume.  Jams up traffic on that corner of the strip.    They had to put the Raiders stadium away from the strip.

Which would make them the 11th cheapest team. 32 teams total. 

 

The title of the thread didn't have "(lowest)" initially, making it seem like they were 11th highest.

The topic title is still confusing, since it makes it seem like there are only 11 teams and that the Bills have the lowest cost of them all.  It should say the Bills are the 11th cheapest...which actually isn't that sexy of a topic now that I think about it.  I would expect us to be at the very bottom with the Ohio teams.

The Falcons deal on hot dogs of course helps them.  

 

Could not find breakdown of each item so people could evaluate their own costs.

I am assuming parking is at stadium rather than private lot parking which skews data.

 

 

 

 

 

The Falcons cheap hotdogs (and general concessions) definitely affects the formula and ranking, all without them losing too much money. The lines were soooooo long I gave up on multiple occasions. Hopefully they have worked things out since then. 

 

As an irrelevant aside, soccer games are far more exciting to attend than Falcons games. FAR more energy for soccer than football as the Falcons come in behind UGA and even Georgia Tech in terms of local interest. MANY people here are transplants as well. The Bills bar has more juice than anything I’ve seen from Falcons fans.

I used to go to a Seahawks game every season as they are a 2 hour boat ride from me. I would go to a Bills home game every 3 years for the past 24 since I moved west. 3 years ago, I determined that flying to an away game in most cities where I spend 3 nights would cost me about $200 each more than what it cost me for 2 nights, tickets and the boat ride to Seattle. Some cities have simply priced themselves out of reason. Happy to see our Bills are not amongst them.

a little surprised AZ is the third-cheapest


Im actually most surprised at the price difference to go to games in the same stadium, like LA and NJ. 
 

Also, we get relatively worked on concession in Buffalo. It feels like that’s been happening for a bit, but it’s gotta be pretty bad given the fact that ticket prices are so cheap.

I'm surprised to see we are more expensive than the Jets!  

 

We have been hearing for years bout NYC people coming to see their team (Jets or Giants) in WNY against the Bills b/c it's actually cheaper for them to see their team here instead of at home!  

 

That doesn't jibe with this data, at least regarding the Jets.

 

 

I'm going to hazard a guess that by "NYC people" they are talking about Jets fans in the state, but not necessarily living in NYC itself.  If I was a Jets fan in Albany, for example, going to see the Jets play in Orchard Park, even though almost twice as far, would probably be cheaper than going to the Meadowlands if you were planing on staying overnight.  I had Bills season tickets in the 80's, and seem to remember a lot of Albanians (?) making the treck to Rich Stadium for the annual Jets game.  They would always remark how "cheap" Buffalo was in comparison, and how great it was to experience a game in Buffalo.  As sombody who lived in NY city for a few years, and went to some Jets and Giants games, I can tell you...the stadium in the Meadowlands is a decent place to watch a game, but the whole experience there pales in comparison to Orchard Park.  If you live in NY city, getting out to the stadium is not fun...and as many don't own vehicles, they would either have to rent a vehicle, or deal with public transportation.  I did it about a half dozen times while I lived there...it was a drag.

When I went to UB there were a large number of NYC area students there because it was furthest state university from NYC so mommie and daddie could pay in-state tuition for them.  You could see the difference in NYC area students since most had new cars not having to take buses to classes or between campuses.  Every time the Jest played every year or occasionally the Jiants played there would be large groups of students going to game and there would often be friends and family from down state joining them.  In first year at college I was a freshman and freshmen did not get solo rooms and my dorm room included two students from NYC,  Sunday, September 23 Bills beat the Jest and they came back drunk from it with 2 friends who could not get flights back that night.  They did not bother asking if their friends could stay in our dorm room and were up late that night.  Lots of classes that Monday morning had students missing and more than one professor had a pop quiz on that day knowing the pattern.
