SANTA CLARA (CBS SF) — The new home of the San Francisco 49ers is now the most expensive National Football League venue to take a family of four.
Chicago-based Team Marketing Report released its annual Fan Cost Index Thursday, showing indicating families will have to shell out an estimated $641.50 to attend a 49ers game in their new digs at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara.
The figure – which takes into account the price of four tickets, four hot dogs, four soft drinks, two beers, two programs, two adult hats, and parking – is a whopping 38 percent increase from the average cost 49ers fans paid in 2013 at Candlestick Park.
