sport news At least the beer is cheap! The incredible cost of attending the Super Bowl ...

Attending America's biggest sporting event is a notoriously expensive pursuit, with fans spending thousands of dollars to watch LA Rams take on at Super Bowl LIII on Sunday. 

However, supporters will find food and drink inside Atlanta’s Mercedes Benz Stadium surprisingly cheap for the NFL finale.

The stadium, home to Atlanta Falcons in the regular season, is known for its low cost concession items and will keep prices the same when up to 71,000 fans descend for the biggest game of the season.

In several cases, concession items will be more than 50 percent cheaper than at previous Super Bowls.

A draught beer is just $5 compared to the eye-watering $11 minimum charged at US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis last year.

There are similar price drops in other areas, with pretzels, hot dogs, bottles of water, a refillable soda cup and popcorn priced at just $2 each.

Nachos with cheese, waffle fries and a pizza slice will set you back only $3, with a souvenir refillable cup at $4 – with a similar-product priced at an astonishing $30 at the 2018 Super Bowl.

These prices are not just a Super Bowl special as the Atlanta Falcons are known for having some of the cheapest beer prices around. Of the 32 NFL teams, they boast the joint-lowest price per ounce at just $0.42 alongside six other teams.

The , Baltimore Ravens, , Detroit Lions, Arizona Cardinals and Cincinnati Bengals charge the same price at their stadiums.

While concession items will be extraordinarily cheap during the Super Bowl, unfortunately fans will have to fork out thousands of dollars just to be in the stadium at all.

The average ticket price is around $7,300 (£5,576.25) while in some cases punters have forked out more than $50,000 (£38,188) to see their team in action. 

Naturally, prices differ substantially based on location, the participating teams and how quickly they are snapped up.

At the time of publication, the cheapest ticket available on official ticketing site StubHub - to sit in Upper Corner block 301 - is priced at a staggering $2,999 (£2,291.61).

At the opposite end of the scale you can still spend $28,000 (£21,387.80) to sit in Lower Club Midfield, block 126.

Those wanting a luxury experience will also need to fork out appropriate prices, with the 20 boxes at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium on sale at prices ranging from $19,500 (£14,895.08) for a hospitality room all the way to private suites for $565,000 (£431,637.40).
