Here's What It REALLY Costs to Go to the Super Bowl

It's crazy how much an Airbnb apartment in Minneapolis will cost this weekend.
Published

With Super Bowl LII this weekend, you might be dreaming about going to Minneapolis to see the New England Patriots face the Philadelphia Eagles. But do you know how much that'll set you back?

To help bring your lofty dreams back to earth, we've researched the costs for you! We did our best to portray typical expenses, but of course, "cheaper" options are available. For example, you could book one of several bunk beds crammed into a Minneapolis bedroom and listed on Airbnb for $380 on Super Bowl night, but that doesn't sound like much fun. And if you're coming from a warmer part of the country, you may have to buy some winter gear.

Still, these quotes should give you a ballpark estimate of what you can expect to spend. Or, you can just scoff at what others are spending, if that's your bag.

Infographic

When it comes to general spending stats about the Super Bowl, you may see one notable omission from our infographic: total beer consumed. That's because we've chosen not to include the Stevens Institute of Technology's oft-disputed estimate of the amount of beer consumed on Super Bowl Sunday.

If this stat were correct, that would mean that during the big game, every man, woman, and child drinks almost a gallon of beer, or about 11 cans.

They put that number at 325 million gallons of beer. If this stat were correct, that would mean that during the big game, every man, woman, and child drinks almost a gallon of beer, or about 11 cans. Though bros each drinking a case of "Natty Light" (whose qualification as beer is debatable) could skew this number, it seems very unlikely that this stat is correct.

What do you think, readers? Do these costs surprise you? Do you think going to the Super Bowl is worth the money? Let us know in the comments.

Of course it's not worth it. For that amount you could buy a 65 inch OLED 4K TV that you get to keep and watch it from the best seat in your house and then take a nice 2 week vacation in Europe to celebrate when the Eagles win. :)
