Editor’s note: MetLife officials say Jets and Giants fans pay exactly the same for food and beverages, and that information being circulated by a Sidelines.io analysis regarding the stadium is incorrect. This story and its headline, originally published Nov. 3., has since been reworked and updated for accuracy.
Despite an analysis of NFL stadium concession prices conducted by Sidelines.io that indicates Jets fans pay more for beer and hot dogs at MetLife Stadium than Giants fans, stadium officials say that’s just not true.
A MetLife spokeswoman said in an email that “all food and beverage prices at Jets and Giants games are exactly the same” and “there is no differential for beer or hot dogs or any other concessions item between the 2 teams.”
The MetLife representative listed the following beer and hot items:
Hot Dog: $7 • 12 oz. Value Beer: $5 • 16 oz. Domestic Aluminum: $13 • 16 oz. Premium Can: $14 • 12 oz. Craft Beer: $14
The NFL’s most expensive frank, according to the Sideline.io information, which is now entirely in question, is apparently sold at the Las Vegas Raiders Allegiant Stadium, where, the website indicates, you would need $8 for a hot dog and another $12 for a beer to wash it down whilst watching the last-place Raiders.
Atlanta Falcons fans, also according to the analysis, have it best on the wiener front — the first-place team’s bougie Mercedes-Benz Stadium only rings you up for $2 for a hot dog. The NFL’s priciest beer, also according to the report, is sold at the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles’ Lincoln Financial Field, where a 16-ounce brew is listed as costing $14.67.
