There has been plenty of discussion recently over the past few years about the price tag for the NFL’s preseason games. Teams around the league charge full price for the preseason games, which hasn’t been well-received by fans because of the little time that the starters spend playing.
One of the ways to resolve the issue that has been discussed is lowering ticket prices for the exhibition games, and it appears as though the Pittsburgh Steelers could be one of the teams to start a trend by lowering the price of their preseason outings.
“I can’t tell you that any decisions have been made yet, but we are looking at possibly having a different price on preseason tickets versus other games,” Rooney said, via Alan Robinson of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “Whether that goes into effect for 2014 or not, I can’t promise you, but I can promise you it’s something we are looking at.
“We understand the fans’ perception of the value of the preseason games.”
The Pittsburgh Steelers already have seen their tickets demand some of the highest secondary market prices in the league, so their fans are shelling out plenty of money to get to the regular season games.
For those fans who cannot afford to attend a regular season game, lowering the preseason ticket prices could open the door for more fans to attend games and get the NFL in-stadium experience.
