    Mercedes-Benz Stadium "Fan First Menu Pricing"

    For those heading to the Florida State game, you're going to pay less for concessions than in you would have if the game was in the Dome.

    Kudos to Arthur Blank for making this decision. Recoup the cost on the ticket, not the food.

    The 1980s called. They want their sign back.

    Good on him. It's absolutely ridiculous the prices of concessions at sporting events (FBS level and Pro's). I took two of my boys to a Texas Rangers game last weekend. The concession prices are unreal. I applaud Mr. Blank.

    I bet they find that the concessions revenues will end up equaling or exceeding those from other venues. Most people spend more when they think they are getting a good deal.

    You also stop encouraging people to sneak stuff in. As you said, if people think they're getting a good deal they'll just buy from the concessions.

    Bingo.

    Ticket prices went up a little, but people will be willing to pay that knowing they aren't paying as much for concessions.

    I'd rather pay 150 up front than pay 100 and feel like the venue is hustling me for the other 50 the entire time.

    Even if I end up spending 15-20 bucks on concessions for the two in this system, it just feels less antagonistic.

    Those are some good prices. You could order one of everything on that menu for $39, love the refillable cups! Those prices look to be at least half what the prices were at A-day in BDS.

    Was at the Dome for the Washington game. It was rainy and chilly. We decided to just eat concessions in the Dome. A bad and costly decision. We ate the equivalent of lunch there, and would have had dinner, but it was far too pricey, especially for the quality. Huzzah for whomever made this decision. Hope it starts a trend.

    If I ran a team I'd have free parking in team owned lots and tack an extra couple bucks on every ticket to pay for it. That way nobody notices they "paid" to park, even if they don't own a car. Plus everyone who did drive and parked in my lot has an extra $10-$12 in cash in hand to spend inside.
