Arizona Diamondbacks have lowest Fan Cost Index for 10th straight year
For a 10th consecutive year, the Arizona Diamondbacks have the lowest Fan Cost Index in Major League Baseball following the the 2018 computations from Team Marketing Report.
Arizona boasts a Fan Cost Index of $145.58, nearly $86 less than the league average of $230.98.
The numbers crunched to figure out the Fan Cost Index include the price of four average tickets, two beers, four soft drinks, four hot dogs, parking for one car and two adult-sized hats. Essentially, the grand total is what it would cost a family of four to attend a baseball game.
One of the reasons for the Diamondbacks’ low Fan Cost Index is because the team has the least expensive tickets, on average, in the MLB. An average ticket game ticket costs $19.65, almost $13 cheaper than the MLB average of $32.44.
“It is our goal to always be one of the most affordable and fan friendly teams in not only MLB, but among all professional sports teams,” D-backs President and CEO Derrick Hall said, per a release. “We take great pride in having the lowest Fan Cost Index in baseball for a decade and are particularly proud to offer affordable pricing for families to enjoy a game.”
