Packers Raise Ticket Prices Ahead of 2011 Season

After winning the Super Bowl nearly two weeks ago, the Green Bay Packers popularity has grown significantly since hoisting their fourth Lombardi Trophy.  The Pro Shop at Lambeau Field has been rolling in cash, while Madden 11 has become overrun with eager Packer fans online.

But apparently none of that has been enough to keep ticket prices the same in Green Bay.  The team told season ticket holders yesterday that seats between the 20-yard line will increase from the former price, $83, to $87 for the 2011 season.

Other tickets in the stadiums bowl will go up an extra $3, as the previous price of $73 has been elevated to $76 for regular seating, while endzone tickets will jump from $67 to $69.

CEO Mark Murphy says the change is necessary for the competitiveness of the franchise in such a money happy league. 

"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 game day experience," Murphy said in a letter.

At the same time, though, should the CBA result in a no-go for the 2011 season, fans will be refunded if the NFL comes to a halt this year.  However, the Packers aren't preparing for the worst just yet.

"We expect the NFL will reach a new CBA with the players, and so we are planning for the 2011 season," Murphy stated. "However, if there is a disruption in our home schedule, we want you to know the Packers will refund season ticket holders the ticket price for any games not played. We also are prepared to pay interest on the price of a ticket if a game is missed or rescheduled. We will provide more details if the parties are still negotiating in July when you receive your season tickets."

Suite tickets have also seen a price raise, as they now cost $87, a $4 change in comparison to last year.
