Miami Marlins slash price of concessions for 2019

The Miami Marlins have become the latest major professional sports team to cut the price of concessions. The MLB team are introducing the 3-o-5 Menu, which features eight items prices at either $3 or $5.

The menu, a nod to Miami’s 305 area code, includes hot dog, popcorn, pretzel, nachos, water (bottle), soda (cup) for $3; and mojo pork tacos, draft beer (domestic, 12oz) for $5.

“We are excited to create an affordable and impactful fan experience at Marlins Park that is reflective of the interests of our fans and community,” Marlins president of business operations Chip Bowers said. “We are committed to investing in a first-class fan experience with price conscious options for all fans and all games.”

The Marlins drew a total of only 811,104 fans to Marlins Park over 81 home games in 2018 — the lowest single-season turnout for any team since the 2004 Montreal Expos.
