Sports fans! Want to live near your favorite team? ItÕ going to cost you

Top 10 most expensive cities for sports fans

There’s nothing like cheering on your favorite sports team, especially when they’re winning (Go Cowboys!)

But in some cities the cost of living near the stadium or going to the games is far less affordable than average. To see the exact cost of living in a sports-town Realtor.com put together a list of the top 10 most expensive cities for sports fans.

To do this, it compared three factors:

How much it costs to attend a game—a regular ticket, a soft drink, a beer, a delicious hot dog, and parking, according to Team Marketing Report — That's the number listed with each team's logo, BTW.

How much it costs to live near a stadium — the median price of homes within two miles of a stadium

How much more it costs to live near a stadium, compared with the median price of the metro area
