Packers raising 2012 ticket prices
The price of football is going up at Lambeau Field.
The Green Bay Packers announced today they are making modest raises throughout the stadium for the 2012 season. Tickets will go up between $3 and $5 per seat, per game depending on where they are located in the stadium bowl. Tickets will now be priced at $72, $80 or $92, depending on location.
“For the Packers, ticket revenue continues be an important component of our ability to remain financially competitive with the other 31 NFL teams,” Packers president Mark Murphy wrote in a letter to season-ticket holders. “Our goal each year is to be at the league average in terms of our ticket prices. This increase maintains our position near the league average.”
Murphy also updated ticket holders on the expansion to Lambeau Field, the three-year project that features a new sound system, two new video boards, 6,700 additional seats in the south end zone, two new gates and a new state-of-the-art concession sales system. The ongoing project will be fully complete for the 2013 season. The video boards are expected to be in place for the 2012 season.
