The Lions made the playoffs this season for the first time since 1999 and they are using that success as a way to raise a little more revenue.
Lions president Tom Lewand announced Friday that the team will be raising ticket prices at Ford Field for the 2012 season. It’s the first hike in prices in five years for the Lions and that increase was followed by a winless season. No one’s expecting that this time around.
Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports that the team will be raising prices an average of eight percent. The most expensive non-premium seats will go from $90 to $99 a game while the cheapest seats will see a bump from $30 to $35 per game. According to Lewand, the Lions will rank either 23rd or 24th in the league when it comes to prices after the increases are put in place.
