GREEN BAY (WITI) -- The Green Bay Packers announced plans on Tuesday, February 19th for a price increase on stadium bowl tickets for the 2013 season. The increase has a range from $2 to $5, depending on the section in the stadium bowl, with nearly half of the seats to increase $2.
In a news release issued Tuesday morning, Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy said, “These increases will keep us at about the League average in terms of ticket price, which is our goal. We want to be fair to the visiting teams in terms of shared revenue (visiting teams receive one-third of all ticket revenue), but also be as affordable as possible for you.
Tickets in the end-zone seats (sections 100-108, 131-138, 303-312 and 340-354), representing nearly half of the lower seating bowl, will increase $2 to $74. Tickets from the 20‐yard line to the end zone (sections 109-114, 125-130, 314-320 and 332-338) will increase $5 to $85, and tickets between the 20-yard lines (sections 115-124 and 322-330) will increase $5 to $97.
As previously announced, New South End seats will be $82 (700 Level) and $89 (600 Level).
Comparatively speaking around the NFC North for the 2012 season, the best sideline seat for the Bears was $175, Vikings $143 and the Lions $119.
