Biggs: Rams lowering season ticket prices
In a devout baseball town, the St. Louis Rams are doing everything they can to keep butts in the seats.
Short of, well, winning, the Rams are enticing fans with cheaper tickets for 2010. As Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports, it marks the first time in the Rams’ 15-year stay in St. Louis that they have reduced the price of season tickets.
Two-thirds of the seats in the Edward Jones Dome will be dropped with a savings of $30 to $190 per season ticket. For the first time since before the explosion of the Greatest Show on Turf, the team will also offer season tickets in the upper bowl (nose bleed level) for $250, a cost of $25 per game.
"We are pleased to announce that we are reducing season ticket prices for the majority of our fans as part of our ongoing pledge to deliver more value to our loyal season ticket holders," said Kevin Demoff, the club’s executive vice president, in a statement. "This marks the third consecutive year that we are not raising prices as we strive to reinforce our commitment to St. Louis, improve our fan experience, and reward our best customers, our season ticket holders, for their continued support."
