Tigers Raising Ticket Prices For First Time In Three Years

Tigers' Average Ticket At Comerica Park
Will Cost $27.50 During '11 Season

The Tigers are "raising ticket prices for 2011, the first price hike at Comerica Park in three years," according to Lynn Henning of the DETROIT NEWS. Two weeks before "invoices are to be sent to season-ticket holders, the average premium ticket will get a $2.20 boost, with the average seat overall being hiked" by $0.97. There will be a "price decrease for 4,300 seats." The average price for a Tigers ticket in '11 "will be $27.50." There will be 17 separate price points "between the highest- and lowest-priced seats, with the $5 ticket remaining for all games." The "high-end ticket in 2011 will be prime-time box seats for so-called 'premium' games against the Tigers' marquee opponents." Those seats "will move from $77 to $82, while mainstream lower-deck box seats will get a boost from $70 to $73." Although the Tigers "have not formally announced the price hike," team sources said that "higher overhead has made a slight increase necessary" (DETROIT NEWS, 10/30).
