Bundesliga Standing Tickets See Price Increases Of Up To 51% Over The Past Decade

Bundesliga ticket prices "have risen by up to 51 percent for the cheapest standing season ticket over the past 10 years," according to Stephan Uersfeld of ESPN. Cheap standing tickets "are a major Bundesliga draw, enabling fans from throughout Europe to regularly attend matches in Germany's top division." But the cost of such tickets "is continuing to increase," and the "11 Freunde" report showed that the cost of terrace season tickets has passed the €200 ($264) mark, "increasing at a rate above inflation over the decade." A season ticket for Dortmund's Südtribüne (South Stand) currently costs €204 ($269), with prices up 38% over the 10-year period. At Schalke, prices have gone up 51%, with the Royal Blues now charging €190.5 ($251). Similar price hikes "apply to the cheapest seats," with Dortmund's prices having gone up by 22% to around €450 ($594) and Schalke close to €450 -- 73% more than 10 seasons ago (ESPN, 8/25). 11 FREUNDE's Arne Steding reported from '98-13, single game standing tickets at Borussia Dortmund "have increased by 90%." Single game seating tickets "have seen an even bigger jump" with up to 139%. The average salary in Germany "has increased by 43% over the same period, with pensions seeing only a 16% boost" (11 FREUNDE, 8/25).
