The New York Jets announced a plan to adjust the current price of tickets for the upcoming 2014 season on Monday.
Tickets will increase on seats located in the lower level by an average of three percent. However, tickets located in the upper level of MetLife Stadium will decrease by about 10 percent.
“We understand the sacrifices many of our fans make to attend our games,” Jets President Neil Glat said in a statement posted on the Jets' official website. “We carefully study and assess market demand based on many factors, including the secondary market, prices around the National Football League, and prices for other sports and entertainment offerings in the New York market. Our goal is to maximize the number of season ticket holders in our building in an effort to create a substantial homefield advantage.
“We're also always looking to add value for our season ticket holders. For us, the focus is not only for the 10 games in the stadium but also offering a lot more Jets activities year round, such as Jets House during Super Bowl week, draft parties, and conference calls with our season ticket holders, among many other benefits.”
