The cost of heading to the stadium on any given Sunday to watch your beloved team strive toward gridiron glory could certainly put a dent in your wallet, and some fan experiences might even pin you back to your own goal line (a.k.a. your credit card limit). Using numbers compiled by the Chicago-based Team Marketing Report, a sports business research company, in its 2013 NFL Fan Cost Index ® and median household income figures in the metropolitan areas of the 32 NFL franchises from the 2012 American Community Survey, Al Jazeera has created this sortable table to bring some perspective to where fans' dollars go on game day, and which teams offer their fans more or less bang for their buck.
