There are different ways you can enjoy a football game. While some prefer to stay home, throw a barbecue and spend time with friends, others would rather watch their favorite team live. After all, there’s no way to replicate the Game Day experience of an NFL stadium. And if you’re a fan of the Jacksonville Jaguars, you should be thrilled to hear that they had some of the cheapest tickets in the league last year.
TicketIQ Blog recently shared on social media the cost of watching a football team play in 2021 and the cost of tickets for the Jags were among the cheapest ones, with an average of $283 on the secondary market list. Only the Houston Texans ($269), the Detroit Lions ($267), the Washington Commanders ($256), and the Atlanta Falcons ($236) had cheaper tickets.
Similarly, clubs like the Dallas Cowboys ($726) and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers ($703) were among the most expensive to watch. This doesn’t come as a surprise when you take into account how big the Boys’ following is and the presence of Tom Brady in Tampa Bay. Other teams that ranked among the most expensive ones to watch were the Las Vegas Raiders, the Green Bay Packers, the Los Angeles Rams, and the Kansas City Chiefs.
There are 2 ways to look at the cost of going to a Jaguars game
Nobody will be opposed to getting the most bang for their buck, so it’s good to find out that going to a Jaguars game is cheaper than going to a Bucs one. Having said that, $283 isn’t spare change and you have to also take into account parking costs, food, souvenirs, and whatever other expenses might arise.
Also, it’s important to point out that the Jaguars haven’t been particularly good over the last three years, so it’s not necessarily a bargain. Who wants to go to an NFL game only to watch their favorite team get blown out? If the Jags were any good, it would definitely worth it. And yes, going to a game isn’t just about the team. You get to spend time with other fans and often have a good time regardless of whether they win or lose.
Of course, if the Jaguars start winning, ownership will have the incentive to raise praises, so you could make the case it’s a double-edged sword. Watch them lose and pay less or see them win and pay more.
Then again, Jaguars fans won’t mind shelling a bit more money out if Trevor Lawrence can help them right the ship and start winning football games.
