METS LOOK TO STAY COMPETITIVE, RAISE TICKET PRICES
Published December 8, 1997
The Mets raised ticket prices for the '98 season, with a new scale ranging from $9-35 per seat, according to Buster Olney of the N.Y. TIMES. The increases "range from" 40% for the most expensive seats, to 15%. Mets Senior VP/Business Affairs Dave Howard: "These increases are dictated by the significant increase in player payroll. And that's before we look to improve the team." Prices for the "Metropolitan Club" seats will be $35, up from $25 last season. The least expensive seats move from $7 to $9 (N.Y. TIMES, 12/6).
