Football season is here, and with it, everyone’s favorite stadium food (and least favorite stadium snack prices). According to The Cheat Sheet, a slice of pizza sees a markup of 69 percent to 75 percent at most sports stadiums. Popcorn is looking at 82 percent to 92 percent. And in many cases, snow cones are closing in on 100 percent markup. Thirsty? Be prepared to pay between $5 and $11 for a beer at most NFL stadium concession stands — a 26 percent markup. Opting for soda will save you a couple bucks but will still cost between $3 and $8 — a 94 percent markup.
