The increase amounts to $3 for each seat in the general seating area.
Invoices were sent to season ticket holders this week.
“Our goal for ticket pricing is to be just below the League average,” says Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy in a brochure sent to fans. “With this increase, we project to rank 17th in average ticket price, which accomplishes the goal and maintains a fair visiting team contribution, as well. We’re confident our top-rated Lambeau Field experience remains a great value for (ticket holders).”
With the $3 increase, tickets in respective areas in 2014 will cost:
- End zone seats – $77
- South end zone, 700 Level – $85
- End zone to the 20‐yard line – $88
- South end zone, 600 Level – $92
- Between the 20-yard lines – $100
Payment is due in the Packers’ ticket office March 31.
Comparatively speaking around the NFC North for the 2013 season, the best sideline seat for the Bears was $190, Vikings $150 and Lions $119.
According to the Packers the brochure sent to fans also discusses the team's review of its playoff ticket procedures.
The team says the review is ongoing, however, they anticipate offering a “pay as we play” type of option for ticket holders that will have payment applied only when a game is certain to occur.
