Eagles Raise Ticket Prices By Nearly 10%; Fans Petition For Color Change
Published February 1, 2013
SKINS GAME: In DC, Rich Campbell noted the Redskins have "increased the price of general admission tickets and parking" for the '13 season. The price of most seats will increase by "no more than" 10% and parking will be $40. General admission ticket and parking prices had been "unchanged for the previous seven seasons" (WASHINGTONTIMES.com, 1/31).
NO HORSING AROUND: In Indianapolis, Phil Richards reported a downtown admission tax increase enacted this week will "mean higher ticket prices" for Colts fans, a "circumstance with which the team is prepared to work." Colts COO Pete Ward said while the cost of some '13 seats will increase for the first time in three years, the majority of seats "will not see a price increase, regardless of the tax." He added that the team "intends to absorb most of the pain of the tax increase." The Colts have "sold out their past 87 home games, including playoffs, and 121 of their past 122" (INDYSTAR.com, 1/30).
