Packers raising ticket prices in 2012

71841327_crop_650x440 Getty Images

Apparently, selling worthless shares of stock for $250 only gets an NFL franchise so far.

The Packers have announced that ticket prices will increase in 2012, with the bumps ranging from $3 to $5 per seat.

“For the Packers, ticket revenue continues be an important component of our ability to remain financially competitive with the other 31 NFL teams,” Packers CEO Mark Murphy said in a letter to season-ticket holders.  “Our goal each year is to be at the league average in terms of our ticket prices.  This increase maintains our position near the league average.”

Murphy needs to make no excuses.  The truth is that the Packers could jack the prices up even higher and still sell out Lambeau Field.  It’s basic economics.  Demand currently far outweighs the supply, which would allow the Packers to set an even higher price before exhausting a waiting list that stretches on for decades.

At a time when plenty of teams are struggling to sell out their stadiums, Packers fans have no qualms about doing whatever it takes to be part of the game day experience.  That’s the kind of passion that the NFL needs in every city, because it prompts fans to be willing to open their wallets for whatever it takes to feel like they’re part of a broader community experience.

    15-1 Win some games first!

    Looks like buying those imaginary shares of the team did you all a lot of good. Have fun in fantasy land where things you pay for have no real value. I guess that’s one less bratwurst, huh? Tough break, cheeseheads.

  3. tjacks7 says: Feb 9, 2012 5:04 PM

    And with your ticket purchase, we’ll give you the opportunity to give us $250 extra bucks and we’ll give you a worthless piece of paper.

  4. clayjayhawk says: Feb 9, 2012 5:06 PM

    Thats why the cheese stands alone!

    Roll out the (cash) barrel!

  6. iamthorny says: Feb 9, 2012 5:09 PM

    You neglected to mention the one instance in which they’ve decreased prices:

    “If we get a home playoff game vs. the New York Giants, we’ll discount the ticket 50% because there’s at least that good of a chance our team will let you down with a poor performance.”

  7. fu7ur3pr00f says: Feb 9, 2012 5:10 PM

    Kinda amazing how certain larger markets can’t seem to get asses in seats, but the Packers constantly sell-out, even during their bad years.

    Just goes to show you that certain cities are more football cities than others (San Diego, Tampa, and Jacksonville – I’m looking at you).

    The Packers organization should just fold. What they won ONE championship? Still. Put that entire state out its misery. Wisconsin doesn’t exist outside of football season. Seriously, how many people, that aren’t football fans, know Green Bay is in Wisconsin?

    Just end it.

    It is the accepted reality for a city smaller than most other franchises’ suburbs to maintain and keep and NFL team. A Pack fan living in MN, this news is pale in comparison to this Vikings stadium debacle.

  12. mikeeg says: Feb 9, 2012 5:16 PM

    Packer stock must still be down?

  13. granadafan says: Feb 9, 2012 5:16 PM

    So 1 stock is the same value as 50 games.

    “Our goal each year is to be at the league average in terms of our ticket prices”.

    Good thing they haven’t set too difficult of a goal – like winning a title more than once every 15 to 30 years.

    youre exactly right, no qualms here or in GB. GB’s front office runs a great operation from admin, stadium ops, player personnel and on the field. I love being a Packer fan.

  24. worldwidebleater says: Feb 9, 2012 5:31 PM

    You stole my line….Perhaps they can get more people to buy toilet paper for $250.
    Yeah I know I know…GB fans love to buy memorabilia to support their team…shouldn’t complain about rising prices of other things, if you do buy that stock…

  26. bmue42 says: Feb 9, 2012 5:34 PM

    id pay an extra $100 each year each game each ticket to be a season ticket holder or get near the top of “the list” #truefans

    cue the stock holder bashing

  27. dvdman123 says: Feb 9, 2012 5:35 PM

    I love the NFL but let’s be honest it’s an overpriced product especially when the owners are making a killing from the TV contracts,merchance,parking and concessions alone. There is a reason why places like Jacksonville and San Diego have to literally beg people to come to their games.

  28. bigred12 says: Feb 9, 2012 5:36 PM

    I’m assuming this means the range of increase is between $3 and $5 per ticket? This makes it sound like tickets were $3 and will be $5. Funny.

  29. thom4msu says: Feb 9, 2012 5:38 PM

    I wish they would just sell me some more stock. I have 1000 shares already, but my broker says it’s a buy.

  30. skittlesareyum says: Feb 9, 2012 5:38 PM

    Here comes the ignorant comments regarding Packers owners.

  31. buckybadger says: Feb 9, 2012 5:42 PM

    I bet they are still one of the 10 cheapest tickets to own in all the NFL. 3 to 5 dollars is nothing. So at most they will pay an extra $50. Here in Denver the tickets at face value sell for what the jacked up price on stub hub is in Green Bay. Was at the Tampa game this year for $80.

  32. chowface86 says: Feb 9, 2012 5:47 PM

  37. 319hike says: Feb 9, 2012 5:59 PM

    First hike in prices since when? 2008? $3-5 isn’t really news worthy is it? Oh it’s Feb….

  38. briang123 says: Feb 9, 2012 6:14 PM

    I wonder what the breaking point would be for Packers’ fans? I have a feeling even with this increase, the Packers are nowhere near it.

  39. mattolikesthevikes says: Feb 9, 2012 6:14 PM

    Did the “shareholders” approve this?

  40. emoney826 says: Feb 9, 2012 6:15 PM

    $3-$5 increase is nothing. That’s less than the cost of one beer while you’re at the game. Who cares!

    Why do ignorant jagoffs continue to act like Packer fans actually think that the stock the purchased really is “stock?” EVERY person who bought it is WELL aware that they essentially donated $250 to the Packers organization.

    It’s the same as paying X amount of dollars to have your name etched into a brick outside a stadium, like several other teams have done.

  43. hard2getausername says: Feb 9, 2012 6:46 PM

    Packers could raise their ticket prices $50 and still sell out every week. How would your fanbase react?

  44. The Prophet says: Feb 9, 2012 6:51 PM

    The Packers situation is different from basically anywhere else in the world. The people of Green Bay, WI are completely dependent on the Packers to feed their lives (because there is literally nothing else), and in return the Packers continue to suck every penny from them while they line up like gerbils getting their food pellets. It’s quite fascinating the symbiotic and parasitic relationship between Packers and their fans.

    Some university should study these people and put it on TLC or National Geographic.

    Sounds like a couple of witless wonders taking some extremely low-brow cheap shots at a team that left them blubbering, snot-blowing whiners at the end of last season. Kudos to you both, sirs. I applaud you for showing that there is no ground floor for the average NFL fans IQ.

    Refresh my memory: Bears were 1985, right? First time in 24 years they won a title, and first Super Bowl? Get a clue, and show a modicum of class.

    stairwayto7 is simply, a lost cause. I envision someone similar to Gollum living in a basement in Pennsylvania, hiding out until the Steelers may eventually hit the 7 mark someday, yet irreversibly bitter because their undefeated cherry was busted by my team in the big show. I guess thine mouth should not have been biting off more than thou can chew during media week prior to SB XLV. How about making Little Timmy Tebow look like a big boy in the playoffs? That was truly special.

    Also, I think the Packers got dominated by the best team in football, If I can remember as far back as last Sunday. Good work, troglodytes.

    “yet irreversibly bitter because their undefeated cherry was busted by my team in the big show.”

    My mistake. I did forget (as most fans probably did as well) their horrific 1995 Super Bowl in which Neil O’Donnell made Larry Brown look like Deion Sanders. Ahh, memories. I guess I can take satisfaction in “piling on” with last year’s loss.

    bearsrule I know it is hard for you but you can leave 1985 anytime now. how sweet for the pack to win the halas trophy at the toilet bowl last year on the way to the 4th SB and 13th title overall. bears tickets probably still cost more to watch a game in a stadium that looks like something i take a dump in. pack tix have always been in the middle of the league or lower. most of the people that bought stock are not ticket holders nor do people that actually live here in green bay wear cheeseheads anymore. and if everything about Wisconsin sucks why did the cubs hire a brewers coach and why did the bears want one of our front office people for the GM job. anyway stay classy and feel free to come here like all the other FIBS and spend your money up north or Door County aka Illinois’ vacation getaway.

    Most everyone here knows me as a Viking fan but I must agree with the statement that the Packers do in fact put on a pretty good team on the field. However – its the intolerable Packer fanbase that makes other fanbases look down on them.

  67. dempsey63 says: Feb 9, 2012 9:32 PM

    A couple of years ago, Green Bay radio station WIXX (the flagship Packers broadcaster) emailed listeners a survey that asked them to select from several options the one change they would make to the station to make it more “workplace-friendly.”

    I wrote back that it was a loaded question because 100% of the respondents would choose one particular answer. One member of the morning on-air team derided my attitude and claimed it was impossible to devise a question whereby ALL of the survey takers would give the same answer.

    So I emailed them back during a commercial break and said, “Okay, here goes: Ask all of the 74,000+ fans packed tightly into the bench-type bleachers what one change they would make to Jennifer Lopez to make her more ‘Lambeau-friendly.'”

    “Murphy & Maino” of the morning team were laughing so hard when they returned from the break that they couldn’t speak for perhaps three minutes while a confused intern attempted to fill the dead air with her patter.

    Yours truly blew the smoke off of his righthand index finger and went back to playing pocket pool.

    last time I checked the Packers have a league leading 13 NFL championships, which includes 5 trips to the superbowl with 4 wins and 1 loss…. next time do some research before opening your FIB mouth and quit talking about your 1 superbowl win as if it just happened. Us real football fans are sick of hearing about the ’85 bears every single year!

    The cheapest Packer ticket is now $72, the most expensive is $92 (not including the club seats). Even at a higher price, these tickets will still be hard to get hold of. Unlike other teams that have to resort to blackouts. The Packers have a good product on the field.

    last time I checked the Packers have a league leading 13 NFL championships, which includes 5 trips to the superbowl with 4 wins and 1 loss…. next time do some research before opening your FIB mouth and quit talking about your 1 superbowl win as if it just happened. Us real football fans are sick of hearing about the ’85 bears every single year!

    ——————

    If I hear “13 world championships” one more time, I’m going to puke. The Packers have 4 Super Bowl wins, which they should be proud of, but the other 9 “championships” are like dreaming that you dated a supermodel. It seems nice, but it doesn’ count.

    The champion was the team with the best record during the season, determined by winning percentage, with ties omitted. This sometimes led to very odd results, as teams played anywhere from six to twenty league games in a season, and not all teams played the same number of games or against league talent. Teams would play against college teams or amateur teams instead of professional teams.

    I hate to correct you, but the other 9 count, by your own standards they count. the years they won the 9 championships, they had the best record. Please dont open your mouth unless you know what your talking about…. silly peoples from illinois…

    Apparently, selling worthless shares of stock for $250 only gets an NFL franchise so far.

    OK we get it.
    How many more times are we going to see this crap about the Packers and their fans?

    I have no problem with the Packers raising ticket prices. I’ve thought for awhile the tickets are too cheap. There are folks who have huge blocks of tickets, 10 tickets…20 tickets. They keep a few for themselves and then dump the rest to brokers or on the ticket broker sites. I’d rather the ticket money go to the Packers than go to Marge from Appleton. Each year there are more and more opposing fans in the stadium from people dumping their tickets. There were at least a ton Giant fans there for the playoff game.

    There are thousands of people still on the season ticket waiting list. If a few people get disgusted at the increased ticket prices there are a whole bunch of peopl who would be glad to pay the extra money.

    Most everyone here knows me as a Viking fan but I must agree with the statement that the Packers do in fact put on a pretty good team on the field. However – its the intolerable Packer fanbase that makes other fanbases look down on them. If only the fanbase were just as classy as the organization then maybe, just maybe, i could fully respect the group as a whole.

    Whenever I read stuff like this I just shrug my shoulders knowing full-well that jealousy breeds contempt. Good luck with that.

    In 2007, what turned out to be Brett Favre’s last season as a Packer, I was able to buy a season ticket for $500. I went to every game and enjoyed a 13-3 season. I didn’t get tickets to the playoffs, but I was quite happy with going to every home game. $500 was face-value of the tickets, in the bowl, on the Packer sideline, around the 20 yard line, about half-way up. Y’all can make fun of our stock, our team, and our cheesehead hats. But we’ve got a good team that will be making the playoffs for years to come.

    I believe the prices are still lower than comparable seats in Chicago, Detroit, and East Dakota. And you get to see a better product.
    Waggs12, sorry but you can’t just erase the early Lombardi Packer championships or any of the others just because you want to. They’re in the record book and are legitimate. And Rodgers and company will probably be adding one or two more before we get to 2020. Unless the Mayans were right, of course – in which case, we’ll have bigger things (or nothing) to worry about.
