Packers Increase Ticket Prices Again

Mary Langenfeld - USA Today Sports

This marks four consecutive years in which the team has raised ticket prices. Tickets that cost $59, $64 and $72 in 2008 and 2009 have gone up $15, $21 and $25, respectively.

For the fourth consecutive year, it will cost you more to see the Green Bay Packers play at Lambeau Field.

The Packers on Tuesday announced plans 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.

Invoices sent to season-ticket holders this week include a letter from Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy that discusses the pricing.

"These increases will keep us at about the league average in terms of ticket price, which is our goal," Murphy said in the letter. "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.

"This year, with the opening of the South End, we also wanted to ensure that the pricing for seats in the bowl was coordinated with the pricing for the new seating. We strive to provide value to all our ticket holders and are proud of the fact our gameday experience is consistently ranked first in the NFL. Ticket revenue also is an important resource in our effort to remain competitive in the NFL."

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, according to the Packers.

Additionally, Lambeau Field suite tickets in 2013 will increase $5 to $97. Lease rates for suites and club-seat ticket prices are set per client contracts, with invoices also mailed this week.

In 2012, tickets in the end-zone seats (sections 100-108, 131-138, 303-312 and 340-354) increased $3 to $72, tickets from the 20-yard line to the end zone (sections 109-114, 125-130, 314-320 and 332-338) increased $4 to $80, and tickets between the 20-yard lines (sections 115-124 and 322-330) increased $5 to $92.

In 2011, end-zone seats (sections 100-108, 131-138, 303-312 and 340-354) increased $2 to $69, tickets from the 20-yard line to the end zone (sections 109-114, 125-130, 314-320 and 332-338) increased $3 to $76, and tickets between the 20-yard lines (sections 115-124 and 322-330) increased $4 to $87.

In 2010, end-zone seats (sections 100-108, 131-138, 303-312 and 340-354) went up $8 to $67, tickets from the 20-yard line to the end zones (sections 109-114, 125-130, 314-320 and 332-338) went up $9 to $73 and tickets between the 20-yard lines (sections 115-124 and 322-330) went up $11 to $83.

The team held the line on ticket prices in 2008 and 2009, with those costing $59, $64 and $72. Those have gone up $13, $16 and $20, respectively.

Payment for 2013 tickets is due in the Packers' ticket office March 28.
