FROZEN TUNDRA, NEXT EXIT; LIONS BITE INTO TICKET COSTS
Published April 21, 1995
The Packers, who will play all games at Green Bay's Lambeau Field next year, have had a 96% renewal rate from ticket-holders for those games formerly played at Milwaukee County Stadium. The team expected only a 75% rate from those Milwaukee fans, many of whom face a long drive to Green Bay. The team is currently adding 90 more luxury boxes and a new, 46-seat auxiliary press box as part of a $8M Lambeau renovation. The waiting list for Packer season tickets is now 19,000 (Mike O'Hara, DETROIT NEWS, 4/21). LIONS WANT MORE TO ROAR: The Lions plan to reduce prices on about 5,000 tickets in the upper level of the Silverdome from $30 to around $20. The team will also keep end zone bleacher seats priced at $12.50. Lions Vice Chair Bill Ford Jr. said the team, locked into their lease until 2004, is limited in what they can do "regarding ticket prices and 'fan-friendly' improvements." Ford: "We're going to take a look at the whole approach to tickets, with the goal of getting as close to a sellout as we can every week" (Mike O'Hara, DETROIT NEWS, 4/21).
