Green Bay Packers Announce Ticket Price Hike

It will cost Green Bay Packers more to watch their team next season as the Packers have become the fifth Super Bowl champion in the last six years to raise season ticket prices.

The most expensive seats at Lambeau Field, those between the 20-yard lines as well as suite seats, have risen $4 to $87 for next season. Other sideline seats will see a $3 increase to $76 while end zone seats will rise $2 to $69.

While this is the second straight year that Green Bay have raised season ticket prices, the Packers point out that even with new prices, their best seats remain far cheaper than those of their NFC North rivals. The Minnesota Vikings’ best sideline seat at the Metrodome cost $143 last year while the Chicago Bears charge $125 for their top sideline seat at Soldier Field. The Detroit Lions, meanwhile, charged $110 for the best sideline seat at Ford Field.

“This increase keeps us at the league average in terms of ticket price among NFL teams, allows us to remain competitive financially with other clubs and continues to recognize the value of Lambeau Field’s gameday experience,” Packers president Mark Murphy wrote in a statement that was posted on the Packers’ official Web site.

The Packers have sold out 277 consecutive home games, the sixth-longest streak in the NFL and a run that dates back more than 30 years to when the team played some games at Milwaukee’s County Stadium.
