Green Bay Packers will not use variable ticket pricing


First it was the Detroit Lions who made a decision on whether they would use variable ticket pricing, which they have announced will be coming into effect next season.

Up next, the Green Bay Packers, who said earlier today that unlike the Lions, they will not be using variable ticket pricing.

From ESPN,

Last season, the NFL began discussing the idea that ticket prices could be adjusted essentially by the importance of the game, meaning the cost of preseason games could be lowered while prices for certain regular-season games could be raised.

“We won’t be using variable pricing this year but will monitor such programs as they’re used for the 2014 season,” Packers director of public affairs Aaron Popkey said Monday.

The Packers typically keep their ticket prices at around the league average.

While this is good news for fans of a team who has been dominant year after year, it doesn’t mean the prices will necessarily stay where they were last year.

It is possible that the organization can make the decision to raise each section’s ticket prices, like they’ve done in the past.
