Gameday at aN NFL stadium is the quintessential football experience. You've got the freshly-cut grass, thousands of rowdy compadres rooting on the home team, sketchy stadium food and overpriced brews. Oh, and there's also an obscenely high price to pay if you want to even get in.
In Seattle, home of the "12th Man" and the highest ticket prices in the league, you can expect to pay $151 if you want the worst seats possible at CenturyLink Field, and that's the cheapest it gets all year. For the price of a few weeks' worth of groceries, you can grab a nosebleed seat for a Thursday Night showdown with the Los Angeles Rams. Keep in mind that we're not even including parking or any other gameday expenditures.
Thankfully for us Ravens fans, it's a little more affordable to get the home field experience. For about a third of the cost for a Seahawks ticket, you can get a seat for a divisional showdown with the Cleveland Browns. $49 is the get-in price for the November 11th contest. Only $9 more will get you in attendance for the always-entertaining Bengals-Ravens rivalry just two weeks later.
And it's not just for nosebleed seats that the Ravens are a cheap date. As the team with the 14th most-expensive median ticket prices in the league, Ravens ticket prices are vastly cheaper than some of its competitors that post a similar level of play each season. AFC contenders Denver and New England have the second and third-highest ticket prices respectively, commanding $355 and $345 a pop. AFC North divisional rival Pittsburgh's tickets also go for an impressive $270, considerably more than the Ravens median price of $175.
