2020 NFL Fan Cost Index® Now Available
There is no rest for the weary here at Team Marketing Report. We are always about being fancentric and we are always immersed in Fan Cost Index® work of one kind or another.
Not only do we provide our traditional Fan Cost Index breakdown, charts and analysis—if you expect all three teams with new stadiums in hot markets to send their FCIs through the roof, you’d be very wrong.
Not surprisingly, the Raiders move to Vegas and Allegiant Stadium vaulted them up the rankings. In fact, they went from 23rd most expensive team last year in Oakland all the way to the No. 1 spot.
The most expensive team for the previous three seasons, the Chargers, not surprisingly fell back from the top spot. They were not going to stay at the ultra-pricey price point with upwards of 30,000 more seats to sell. What was surprising was the fact the Bolts fell all the way to 24th!
Fanless games are costing NFL teams, venues and their partners nearly $3 billion in gameday receipts. All the numbers are crunched and ready to digest in our report.
Next week we will have NHL GGFR numbers completed and published to assess the hit teams took from losing nearly 200 regular season home games due to pandemic safety concerns. Plus, we will compare and contrast across NHL, NBA, NFL and MLB. Stay tuned for that.
NFL FCI Highs & Lows

Have a great week and, as always, stay fancentric friends!
