Bucs, Chargers Decrease Some Ticket Prices In Attempt To Combat Blackouts
Published January 19, 2011
CHEAPER VIEW: The Chargers are lowering the price of nearly 10% of tickets at Qualcomm Stadium for next season while keeping the same prices for all other seats for a franchise-record fourth consecutive season. The 6,500 View Level end zone tickets will cost $54, down about 15% from $63 this season (Chargers). The Chargers "had three games blacked out" this season, and Chargers Exec VP A.G. Spanos noted that the View Level seats are "perennially among the last to sell." Spanos added that he hopes the price decrease will "persuade people 'on the fence' to invest in season tickets." The Chargers are "allowing season ticket purchasers to pay in three installments, one more than in previous years" (SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE, 1/19).
