Falcons To Raise Ticket Prices For Suite Level, Club Seats For '14 Season
The Falcons "already have set the price for suite and club seats" for next season, according to Leon Stafford of the ATLANTA JOURNAL-CONSTITUTION. The team received approval yesterday from the Georgia World Congress Center Authority to "raise the price of new club seats" between 3-5% for the '14 season, while increasing the cost of club-seat renewals by 3%. Falcons Senior VP/Sales & Marketing Jim Smith said that a total of 56 suites -- almost 50% of inventory -- are "up for renewal" for next year. More than 1,950 club seats and super-suite seats "also will be available." Stafford reports prices for suites will rise 3% in '14, with the same increase for "prices for new super suites or super-suite renewals." Smith said that the Falcons "set a record for season-ticket sales this year because they priced early, and the team wants to keep that momentum going" (ATLANTA JOURNAL-CONSTITUTION, 8/28). Meanwhile, the Georgia Lottery yesterday began selling new Falcons-themed scratch-off tickets, marking the "fourth consecutive year the franchise has partnered with them to create a game" (AP, 8/28).
