GLENDALE, AZ - When you’re at a football game, food and drinks are part of the experience, but have you ever wondered where it all comes from? Or how much they make to satisfy every fan in the stadium?
In order to feed the 63,000 screaming fans at the University of Phoenix Stadium, they staff 1,200 people at the concession stands. There are also another 55 chefs down in the kitchen cooking all of the food for the stadium.
During one home football game, stadium officials say that sell on average 20,000 hot dogs! That is equivalent to over 33 football fields long if they were to be placed end to end.
Some other fun facts about the concessions:
6,500 popcorn tubs sold each game
13,500 souvenir drink cups each gamee
5,500 pretzels sold each game
4,500 hamburgers sold each game
2,500 bags of kettlecorn per game
