Super Bowl concession prices are predictably high

- February 2nd, 2014

The Super Bowl is upon us. To watch one of the biggest spectacles on the planet, the fan experience has morphed into sitting on the couch with family and friends and stuffing yourself with burgers, pizzas, hotdogs, chicken wings, nachos and chips, and washing it down with your favourite carbonated alcoholic beverage — beer!

Trying to buy a ticket to the “Big Game” is very nearly impossible due to scarcity and cost as this fan found out, so that’s a story for another day.

But for the lucky NFL fan that actually has a pass to watch the Super Bowl game between the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks, get ready to shell out even more from your back pocket. Whether you are hungry or thirsty, you shouldn’t be surprised at the concession prices inside MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

Are your ready for some football?

    Price gigging goes hand in hand with the inflated ticket prices. If the fans stayed away, then what? The reality is there are always enough suckered to toss their money at the Millionaires League in any sport.

    I thought there was a law in US about price gouging.

    Ripoff is right. What a joke…

    If Rob Ford was there Toronto would be in debt with those prices!

    @Paull Alexander … but the fans won’t stay away. Organizers are counting on fan loyalty.

    And what is so new about price gouging at sporting events. Movie theaters does it all the time.

    @mademoterman. Hahaha really. America is purely about ripping off others for the pure profit of ones self. To do anything otherwise would. Be unpatriotic, uncapitalist and hindering the free market.
    It’s un-American NOT to gouge people. That’s the whole point of capitalism. To CAPITALIZE on others

    I have been to couple of Toronto FC games. At half-time the rush to the beer begins. Idiots! I refuse to pay the rip-off prices…and figure if everyone else did the same the prices would come down pretty quick. Although I would LOVE to see the staff stood there with all the beers at the ready…and no-one buying. Oh, the look on their faces! And have MLSE left with all that unsold product. Sweet! DON’T BUY THE STUFF AT CRAZY PRICES!

    did you see the warning that anyone who appears to be under 40 will be asked for ID to buy beer !
    LOL!

    As Americans, youre not allowed to dislike it. It’s the free market. If you don’t like it, don’t go.

    It’s $10 for a king can at an Argos game…
