Biggs: Packers raise ticket prices

With an average ticket price that ranks 30th in the NFL, the Green Bay Packers have announced that prices for 2010 are moving on up.

The club will raise ticket prices in the stadium bowl by an average of $9 per seat, and invoices and a letter from team president Mark Murphy are being sent to season-ticket holders next week.

Ticket prices inside the bowl will now be $67, $73 and $83. Suite ticket prices will also be $83. According to the Packers, $83 for the best sideline seat is still well below their rivals in the NFC North. The Vikings checked in at $117 compared to $108 with the Bears and $90 with the Lions.

“The new pricing strengthens our ability to be competitive both on and off the field with teams in larger markets,” Murphy wrote in a letter to season-ticket holders. “With the future landscape regarding the Collective Bargaining Agreement unknown, teams will be even more competitive in terms of generating revenue. The increased revenue will allow us to focus financial resources on supporting a successful football team, our No. 1 goal.”
