Angels, Royals Raising Ticket Prices For ’07 Season

Angels Raising Prices Of
Most Tickets For Next Season

The Angels “raised the price of almost every seat” in Angel Stadium for next season and “removed about 9,300 seats from the ‘buy two, get two free’ season-ticket program,” according to Bill Shaikin of the L.A. TIMES. The “buy two, get two free” promotion will remain available with no price increase “for about 4,200 less-desirable seats on the view level, generally above the foul poles.” Meanwhile, Diamond Club seats, which sold for $82.50 this year, “will jump to $125 for the first row, $104 for the next five rows and $93 elsewhere.” Field level seats behind the dugout sold this year at $49.50 for the first row and $42 otherwise, “will jump to $58 for the first row, $52 for the next five rows and $46 otherwise.” The Angels “raised the price of all other seats from $1 to $4 each” (L.A. TIMES, 10/14).

ROYALS: In K.C., Bob Dutton wrote the Royals, despite a third-straight 100-loss season, will raise ticket prices for the second time in three years. The increase applies to all seats in Kauffman Stadium and ranges from a $1 increase in the corners of the upper deck “to a $25 jump, from $200 to $225, for the crown seats.” The Royals’ average ticket price of $13.71 in ’06 was the lowest in baseball. Team officials said that the average “will remain less than $15” in ’07 and that “more than 20,000 of their 40,758 seats will sell for less that $14 when bought on an individual-game basis.” Also, tickets for eight games will be offered at a 50% discount to residents of Jackson County (MO) “in return for county residents approving a referendum to fund a renovation of Kauffman Stadium” (K.C. STAR, 10/14).
