Jets lowering price on some seats, raising none

Good news has been in short supply around the Jets this offseason.

Players are jumping to other clubs in droves, Darrelle Revis appears headed out in a trade and the team doesn’t have much money to spend on replacements. It’s shaping up to be a rough year, but more than 5,000 fans can take solace in the fact that it will cost them less to watch the team play in 2013.

The Jets announced Friday that 3,000 seats in the upper deck and more than 2,000 club seats will have a lower price tag than they did last year. The remainder of the seats will be unchanged.

“Our pricing is remaining unchanged for the coming season, with a few exceptions,” team president Neil Glat said in a release from the team. “After taking a look at the entire bowl, we decided to adjust certain prices to improve the value for fans, especially for season ticket holders.”

The Jets are also offering 2,013 prizes to season ticket holders who renew for the 2013 season, including tickets to the Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium. The winner of that prize isn’t likely to see the Jets play, but we’re guessing that eight games will be plenty to get their fill.

    You gotta give the fans something for the season. This many be one of the only victories for the team.

    I still rather watch them at my home and not spend over $300 just to see them lose in person.

    They can give them away and it won’t help the issues with this pathetic franchise.

    1969 was a looooong time ago folks.

    There’s good and bad about being in NY. The bad is that there is ~20 million people living in the NYC metropolitan area plus many big business’s. So while I refuse to spend money on this team, there’s plenty of other idiots who will.

    Can you beat about 250 games for $200 or $300, because that’s what DirecTV has it for.

    A franchise finally lowers seat prices there is nothing but negative comments. This country is chronically negative.

    I’m sure you personally have won a Super Bowl in the meantime.

    They lowered prices for the crappiest locations that still are not worth it. The rest of that monstrosity of a stadium is still way overpriced. Going to be a ghost town in there this year.

    That’s pretty expensive for a USFL team.

  12. rcali says: Mar 15, 2013 3:21 PM

    Bad product that is still too expensive.

    The jets suck.

    That picture is pure gold, lol.

    If the Jets want to sell more tickets, look at the picture of the guy on the left, that would certainly be a big factor. The Jets have to keep Sanchez for the coming season, but he’d be the highest paid back-up or No.3 QB in the NFL. If they can land a good QB, ticket sales would soar.
