Ralph Wilson Stadium

Where located: Buffalo, N.Y.
Team: Bills

The Buffalo Bills, who are oddly enough the only one of the three "New York" football teams to play in the state of New York (the Giants and Jets play in New Jersey) yet the only team in the NFL to play regular season games in Canada (Toronto), come in as the fourth-cheapest fan experience for 2011.

Bills fans have been flocking to Ralph Wilson Stadium since its opening nearly 30 years ago. They not only get to enjoy bargain-priced running back Fred Jackson but also the bargain third-lowest average ticket price at $59.19. The stadium's Fan Cost Index for 2011 is $358.75, up about 1 percent over last season.

Although the tickets are cheaper, parking at Ralph Wilson may be the highest among the cheapest football stadiums. Maybe the people at the stadium know no one wants to walk there in the Buffalo winter -- parking is going to run you $25 a game.

Once inside, be sure to wear layers because it won't exactly be financially prudent to "warm up" on the $8.50 beers. That may be near the highest price in the league, but they are also some of the largest servings at 20 ounces.

As for the Toronto game, 2011 is the fourth of a five-year series where the Bills play one home game per season at the Rogers Centre in Toronto and tickets start at just $50. Now that's a bargain, eh?
