Ravens, Dolphins Will Not Raise Ticket Prices For '11 Season
Published January 21, 2011
DOLPHINS HOLD THE LINE: In West Palm Beach, Ben Volin reported Dolphins CEO Mike Dee "has written a letter to season ticket holders that the team won't be raising ticket prices for the 2011 season, the second time in three years it has opted not to do so under owner Stephen Ross, and third time in the last four years overall." The Dolphins "sold 51,069 season tickets for 2010," up from 49,415 in '09 and 46,131 in '08. Dee in the letter also wrote the Dolphins are "optimistic that (collective bargaining agreement) discussions will be successful, and that a full 2011 schedule will be played" (PALMBEACHPOST.com, 1/20). Meanwhile, a ST. PETERSBURG TIMES online poll asks if the reductions in many Buccaneers season-ticket prices will convince fans to buy next season. At presstime, 53% of the 352 respondents voted "Yes," while 34% of respondents voted "No." The remaining respondents indicated that they were already season-ticket holders (TAMPABAY.com, 1/21).
