The Atlanta Falcons’ Mercedes-Benz Stadium has been commended by fans for their cost-friendly food and beverage pricing. Now, the Atlanta Hawks are following the Falcons’ blueprint by lowering their prices as well.
The Hawks and Philips Arena have announced more fan-friendly prices for food and drinks in the 2018-2019 season. In a graphic released Thursday, chips will be $1; candy, jumbo pretzels and bottled water is $2; fries, hot dogs, nachos and bottled soda is $3; a slice of pizza, bottomless popcorn and bottomless soda is $4; beer is $5; and cheeseburgers are $6.
The Falcons’ move for cheaper refreshments was productive, as the team was 10th in the league in attendance and owner Arthur Blank was named Executive of the Year from Sports Business Journal.
The Hawks enter the 2018-2019 season after a 24-58 win season. They ended the season last in the league in attendance per game.
