The 2016 NFL regular season gets underway Sept. 8 when the defending Super Bowl champions Denver Broncos take on the Carolina Panthers in a rematch of Super Bowl 50. The cheapest tickets for that game cost $81, according to Ticketmaster, but even if you score them, there's a good chance you'll shell out money for drinks, food and parking.

Instead of crunching numbers to figure out the best NFL stadiums to visit, GOBankingRates.com surveyed all 32 NFL teams and determined how much it costs, on average, for two people to attend a home game.

Taking into account the average ticket price, cost of refreshments and parking, here's your guide to the cheapest and most expensive stadiums to see an NFL game.

Methodology

GOBankingRates.com surveyed five costs of attending a football game at all National Football League stadiums:

(1) ticket prices, calculated by averaging the cost per game for the three cheapest season ticket prices advertised on the football team's official NFL site

(2) parking

(3) beer

(4) soft drink

(5) hot dog prices, as reported in the September 2015 Team Marketing Report.

To find the cost of attending a game, GOBankingRates assumed two guests and calculated the total cost of two tickets, two hot dogs, two beers and one parking spot. Stadiums were ranked by this amount to find the least and most expensive stadiums for NFL fans attending a game.
