LIONS CONSIDER REVISITING TICKET PRICES NEXT SEASON
Published October 18, 1994
The Lions "will rethink their uniform ticket-pricing policy for next season." 70,000 of 80,500 seats in the Silverdome cost $30. Lions CEO Chuck Schmidt said the team plans to "take a look at whether there should be more lower-priced tickets" depending on the view of the field. Schmidt noted that a price reduction for some tickets might not result in price increases elsewhere since the change might "sell more tickets." Schmidt also "stressed that the Lions would be sensitive in any decision" to the season ticket holders who pay $27.50/game by signing up early. The Lions are 20th in NFL ticket prices and do not receive any revenue from concessions, parking, suites or in- stadium advertising according to their lease with the Pontiac Silverdome (David Barkholz, CRAIN'S DETROIT BUSINESS, 10/10-16 issue).
