Denver Nuggets fans pay more for beer than fans of almost any other NBA franchise.
That’s according to Bookies.com, which recently calculated what it costs for a family of four to attend a game at each U.S. basketball arena. And just in time, too – the Nuggets’ 2022-23 season tipped off this week in Salt Lake City against the Utah Jazz. The team’s first home game at Ball Arena is Saturday against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Nuggets fans pay $14.72 per 16-ounce beer at home games, Bookies.com found. That’s second only to last season’s championship competitors, the Golden State Warriors and the Boston Celtics – concessionaires at both charge $17.28 per beer – and about $4 more than the league average of $10.53.
Thankfully, Nuggets fans can pinch pennies elsewhere. The sports betting website found that the overall cost for a family of four to catch Nikola Jokić and Jamal Murray on their home court pales in comparison to other teams around the league.
When including four of the cheapest tickets available, parking fees, two beers, two sodas and four hot dogs, four people will spend $185.48 in Denver compared to a league average of $288.38. By contrast, the Warriors charge the most of any team in the league, costing a family of four $690.39 per game, and the Indiana Pacers boast the cheapest prices, at $147.80, Bookies.com found.
“Nowhere is more expensive than San Francisco. You get what you pay for sometimes, and the Warriors have been the class of the NBA the last decade,” Bookies.com said.
In the case of the Denver Nuggets, we’ll take that to mean the best beer selection in the league.
