We all love a football party, and the Super Bowl is frankly the greatest of them all.
However, with tickets to attend the big game so expensive, we didn't expect the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium to sell so many beers.
According to Tim Tucker of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, stadium officials in Atlanta said fans at Super Bowl LIII purchased 117,400 beers during the game, along with 16,300 hot dogs.
That's quite the hangover!
Considering the announced attendance of 70,081, that’s 1.7 beers per fan, and 0.23 hot dogs per fan. We can't tell if people shared their beverage - or their hot dog, but that would be weird - but considering a significant portion of the crowd was under 21 years old, that is a lot of beer consumed in a 13-3 game which didn’t feature many bathroom breaks for kickoffs.
According to the staff of the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, most purchases were made with credit cards, explaining that electronic purchases made up 76,446 of the 110,184 different food-and-beverage transactions.
Maybe some fans were drinking to forget about the New England Patriots winning yet another Super Bowl...
