The Arizona Cardinals are set to kick off their season at home against the New England Patriots on Sunday.

While some fans will be watching with friends on the couch, many will watch in person at University of Phoenix Stadium and enjoy one of the most affordable game day experiences in the NFL.

A recent study by GOBankingRates.com, a national finance website, gathered data for each of the NFL teams in regards to pricing for a ticket, beer, soft drink, hot dog and parking. A Cardinals game in Glendale ranked sixth in overall affordability with a $145 price tag. To compare, the most affordable venue is the home of the Cincinnati Bengals, Paul Brown Stadium, with a $131.93 tag. The Washington Redskins, who play at FedEx Field, have the most expensive home game experience, at $272.17. 

The Cardinals are near the middle of the pack with an average ticket price of $50. Food and drink are among average pricing as well, with beer set at $7.25, soft drinks at $4.25 each and a hot dog for $4. Parking at a Cardinals game will set you back an average of $14, the second-lowest price in the league. Only the Detroit Lions, who play at Ford Field, have a lower average parking cost, at $11. On the flip side, parking at AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys, averages a staggering $75.
