KNICKS SPIKE UP TICKET PRICES: COURTSIDES NOW $1,350 A GAME
Published May 27, 1998
The Knicks are "increasing" ticket prices by 10-12.5% next season, with the top tickets increasing by $100, to a "whopping" $1,350 per seat per game, according to Kevin Kernan of the N.Y. POST. In a letter to season-ticket holders, MSG CEO Dave Checketts wrote that the increases were necessary "to keep pace with the growing cost of maintaining our talented roster in such a competitive marketplace." Courtside seats will now run $58,050 per seat for the season. The most affordable ticket at MSG will rise from $20 a game this year to $22 next season, and a seat that was $200 will now cost $220. Kernan added that the $220 seat "was $25 a decade ago" (N.Y. POST, 5/26).
