Ravens Raise Season-Ticket Prices An Average Of 10% Following Super Bowl Win
Published February 20, 2013
MORE CHEDDAR: In Green Bay, Richard Ryman noted the Packers are "raising ticket prices for the fourth consecutive year, keeping them in the middle of the NFL pack." The team yesterday said that it will "raise prices $2 to $5 for Lambeau Field bowl seating, depending on the section." Nearly "half of the seats will increase $2." The Packers "ranked 17th in the 32-team NFL last year in average ticket price." The average cost "for bowl seating in 2012 was $79.54." It will be $83.54 in '13, "including the new south end zone seats" (GREEN BAY PRESS-GAZETTE, 2/19). In Milwaukee, Tom Silverstein noted the Packers are "close to completing" a $143M expansion of Lambeau Field, which includes "an additional 7,000 seats in the south end zone as well as space that will be used for premium seating." In addition, they have a $140.5M plan "to renovate the Atrium, which will be completed for the 2015 season." However, Packers Public Affairs Dir Aaron Popkey said that none of the ticket increases were made "with either renovation in mind because the cost is being covered in other ways" (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 2/19).
