Bank of America Stadium

Where located: Charlotte, N.C.
Team: Panthers

Football fans in the Carolinas were so thrilled when they were awarded an expansion NFL team in 1995 that nobody seemed to notice that the league slipped the new Panthers into the western division of the National Football Conference. Six years later, someone realized that they should have carried the one, and the Panthers were moved to their current place in the NFC South.

The Panthers found quick success in their new stadium, now called Bank of America Stadium, making the playoffs in their second season. Carolinians took to the Panthers like cheese on grits and even filled more than 98 percent of their home attendance last season despite the worst record in the league. That they are one of the top draws again this season can certainly be partially attributed to being one of the most affordable fan experiences in the NFL for a family of four. The Fan Cost Index of $341.27 is third-cheapest and about $86 below the league average.

The average ticket price of $63.32 is flat to last year, like many teams that Team Marketing Report's research reflects. Panther fans can also benefit from an average $6 for 16-ounce beers, which is among the cheapest in the league and well below the $7.20 average -- which, as should come as a surprise to absolutely no one, is one price that continues to climb year over year.

Regardless of team performance, Panther fans undoubtedly will take great pride in having the cheapest soda price in the league at $3.
