The 2012 Eagles season was not a good one.
They struggled all year, firing assistant coaches on defense and turning the ball over too often on offense on their way to a 4-12 season. That led to the firing of coach Andy Reid after 14 seasons and plenty of fan discontent with the state of the franchise.
If those fans want to come out to Lincoln Financial Field to see how new coach Chip Kelly fares in 2013, it will cost them more money. The Eagles announced that they will be raising ticket prices for the first time since 2009. Tickets ranged from $70 to $95 in the 2012 season and will go up to $75-$105 next season.
“We have made some dramatic changes this offseason, including the hiring of Coach Chip Kelly. But one thing that hasn’t changed – and Coach Kelly appreciates this – is that the passion [the fans] display and the support [the fans] provide with [their] loyalty to [the] Eagles makes this a special place to play football,” Eagles president Don Smolenski wrote in a statement from the team “We are also embarking on a two-year stadium improvement plan at Lincoln Financial Field focused on enhancing the game day experience.”
The average ticket price will be around $93, which leaves the Eagles with the 11th highest average ticket price in the NFL and the lowest average ticket price in the NFC East.
