As if you didn't already know this

Not new news here, but the average (non-premium, whatever that means) ticket prices are in:

  • According to Team Marketing Report, the Yankees' average, non-premium ticket for 2009 is $72.97 and their Fan Cost Index to take a family of four to a game is $410.88.
  • The Red Sox had topped the ticket cost list since 1996 and the FCI standings since 2001. For 2009, their average ticket is $50.24 and their FCI is $326.45.
  • TMR said the Mets' non-premium tickets average $36.99 and their FCI is $258.97.
That's just silly. On average, it will cost 45% more to see a game at Yankee Stadium than in Fenway. Let that roll around in your head for a bit. While you do that, I will continue to curse Randy Levine.

That's only if you are one of the lucky ones to get a ticket first hand for Fenway or Yankee Stadium. Does anyone know what the second market averages are? I think that would be much more telling since that is the only way a lot of perople will get to go to games at either park.

Here's the link to the actual report (pdf). I'm especially happy to see the Brewers in the top 5 most affordable. The difference in cost between the top 3 or 4 and the bottom 3 or 4 is pretty staggering.
