Not going to the Super Bowl will cost you. Yep, you heard that right.
The National Retail Federation estimates the average person watching the game on TV will spend $77.88 this year, up $9.61 from last year. NRF officials say renewed confidence in the economy is likely behind the increase.
The NRF got these findings from its Super Bowl Spending Survey which shows of the more than 75 percent of participants planning to watch the game, nearly 8 in 10 will purchase food and beverages, nearly 11 in 100 will buy team apparel, and nearly 9 in 100 will even buy a new TV.
