Diamondbacks lead MLB with lowest Fan Cost Index ranking
There isn’t a better city to enjoy MLB baseball on a budget.
The Arizona Diamondbacks have the lowest Fan Cost Index in MLB for the 10th year in a row, according to Team Marketing Report’s data for 2016.
The Fan Cost Index, developed by Team Marketing Report, is a representation of how much money it would cost a family of four to attend a game. For 2016, a family could enjoy a game at Chase Field for a total of $132.10, nearly $88 dollars below the MLB average of $219.53.
The price comparisons for the Fan Cost Index includes four tickets, two beers, four soft drinks, four hot dogs, parking and two hats.
At an average of $18.53 per ticket, Arizona has the lowest base prices in MLB at $13 below the average of $31.
“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 & CEO Derrick Hall said in a press release. “We take great pride in having the lowest Fan Cost Index in baseball year after year and are particularly proud to offer affordable pricing for families to enjoy a game.”
