CHICAGO, IL – Football fans are ready, but hopefully they’ve been saving up in the off-season because it may cost a little bit more this year to support your team.

New cost index findings from Team Marketing Report shows season ticket holders for NFL games are paying an average of $82 a game.

That’s up 3% from last year.

Add in parking, which averages about $31, and of course beer which goes for about $7 a piece, two fans will end up shelling out more than $200 per game.

The good news, not every team is raising prices.

In fact, an NFL spokesperson said 17 out of 32 teams stayed flat or even dropped prices this year.

But no matter the price, the one thing that will never drop is team spirit.
