The Chicago Cubs are one of the hottest tickets in baseball, but that demand to get into Wrigley Field comes at a big cost to fans.
According to data compiled by Go Banking Rates, the Cubs’ game-day experience is the second-most expensive in Major League Baseball. For two tickets, two hot dogs, two beers and parking around the ballpark, fans can expect to shell out an average of $116.06 at the historic venue.
The only team that beats the Cubs in the rankings is the Boston Red Sox, whose average price for a day at the ballpark is $157.
The Cubs are in a tie for the most expensive beer in baseball, checking in at $7.75 for a cup at the ballpark. The Red Sox and Philadelphia Phillies are also in the business of expensive brews at their parks, finishing in a three-way tie with the North Siders.
For Chicago fans looking for a bargain, the best direction to cast your gaze is south.
The White Sox are dead smack in the middle of the rankings, finishing in 16th place leaguewide with a total $68.45 for two tickets, two hot dogs, two beers and parking.
Their parking is $5 cheaper on average than the Cubs’ parking, and fans will save a good amount of money on tickets (nearly $10) and on beer (nearly $3) at U.S. Cellular Field.
