Everbank Field

Where located: Jacksonville, Fla.
Team: Jaguars

The Jacksonville Jaguars joined the NFL in 1995 as an expansion team along with the Panthers, which some big cat enthusiasts will insist are the same thing. The list of available, intimidating native species is short though, as the pocket gopher will tell you.

The Jaguars have the mark of being the only major professional sports team to have played its first home game in its inaugural season in a new venue -- the recently renamed EverBank Field. At full capacity, it is the fifth-largest stadium in the NFL, which isn't necessarily a good thing. Despite being the cheapest NFL draw for a family of four, with a Fan Cost Index of $316.50, the team still struggles to fill its seats and is near the bottom of the league in attendance. The Jaguars recently had to make a last-minute push to sell 3,000 tickets to avoid a TV blackout on Monday Night Football.

Though you can treat your family to a round of hats (the cheapest in the NFL at an average $9.95), the overall cost at EverBank Field is up 2 percent over last year. The average ticket of $58.90 is second only to Cleveland, but if you're planning on taking the sales team out for a celebratory game, be aware that premium tickets are relatively high, averaging $229.17.

The stadium got a $63 million face-lift in 2005 for Super Bowl XXXIX, including two new scoreboards where you can personally salute the troops for only $50.
