The WNBA recently began its 28th season in mid-May. Enthusiasm for the league is at an all-time thanks to an influx of exciting rookies, led by number one overall draft pick Caitlin Clark. Across the league, interest has been at its highest since the WNBA’s inaugural season.


For fans looking to take part in the action, they are going to have to pay a price, literally – the increased excitement has brought with it a surge in season ticket and merchandise sales across the league. Along with that surge has been an increase in costs for tickets, team apparel, concessions, and more.


The online wagering site Bookies.com has calculated what the average cost for a family of four would be to attend a game for each of the league’s 12 teams. This analysis factored in the cost for the lowest-priced tickets, parking, two beers, two sodas, and four hot dogs; on average, fans can expect to spend $274.04 for a game during the 2024 season.


According to Bookies.com’s research, this cost is still far lower than the $308.64 needed for the same family of four to attend an NBA game. However, the cost for the most to least expensive WNBA team is wildly disparate.


Taking the number one spot for the most expensive team would be a game in the nation’s capital, with the Washington Mystics at Entertainment and Sports Arena – the average cost was determined to be a whopping $418.20, which is somewhat surprising as the Mystics have not won a WNBA title since 2019.


The Chicago Sky and the Atlanta Dream round out the top three in terms of most expensive teams to see, with average costs estimated at $378.40 and $356.80, respectively.


Perhaps the biggest surprise turned out to be the least expensive team to see; that would be the team who drafted Clark this year and had the number one overall pick last year in Aliyah Boston, the Indiana Fever – to see a game at Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis the average cost is just $180.64, which is quite a bargain, but Fever fans should not expect it to stay this low for long.
