Broncos raise ticket prices

The Broncos made the playoffs for the third straight year last season. Not coincidentally, they’re raising ticket prices for the third straight year this offseason.

The Denver Post reports that the Broncos are raising ticket prices from an average of $84.51 per ticket in 2013 to $89.91 for 2014. That’s a 6.4 percent increase, significantly higher than America’s overall inflation rate of 1.1 percent.

Although most ticket prices are going up, some seats at Mile High will remain the same price as last year, and the Broncos say their tickets are still a good deal compared to the league average.

“We understand there is a perception that tickets to sporting events are expensive, and we continue to look to add value for our fans while keeping prices competitive around the league,” Broncos Senior V.P. of Business Development Mac Freeman told the Post. “The reality is the Broncos’ average ticket price in 2013 was 14th in the NFL, so we’re really in the middle of the pack.”

Rising ticket prices make it increasingly difficult for some fans to get to see an NFL game in person. But the Broncos keep selling out their stadium every Sunday, even as prices keep going up.

    A “perception” that prices are too high. Its reality for the average fan…not perception. Total disconnect with the fan base.

    Tickets should cost $8 for any seat.

    That’s a buck for every point your mighty offense scored when it was all on the line.

    And the packer fans raise their blood pressure.

    And the Seattle Seahawks will raise a Super Bowl banner at the loudest stadium on earth in front of the worlds greatest fans! Go Hawks!

    It’s called the Manning Show.

    As ticket prices rise and big screen tvs become very affordable attendance will continue to drop.. Yes they are “sell outs” but owners buying up empty seats for blackout and tv rev… Did they say they weren’t making money???

    Corporations are the ones buying up Most of the tickets now. The regular fan is being priced out of the stadium and into their living room. Just wait and see what happens to ticket prices once the government revokes their Non Profit status!

    Raising ticket prices by nearly 10% is the first thing that comes to mind when looking for new ideas to increase value for fans. Oh, wait, it isn’t.

    somebody’s gotta pay for that $20 million+ manning salary.

    When will teams learn? We don’t want a “better experience”, we just want affordable tickets.

    September. 5th, my son and I attended our first Broncos game. Thursday night. Seven touchdowns. Worth it!

  15. jjackwagon says: Feb 20, 2014 10:49 PM

    Donkey fans get to pay more to watch the regular season champ choke away another playoff game. Yeaaa!!!

    Here’s a hint, NFL execs: “Keeping prices competitive around the league” does you no good when every team charges way too much for tickets, as you jack up the prices every year, concessions and parking get more and more expensive, and you wonder why people watch the games at home.

  17. vikings1packers0 says: Feb 21, 2014 12:14 AM

    Does Payton know about this?

  18. broncosaddict says: Feb 21, 2014 1:19 AM

    I think this gets way overblown.
    I may be wrong, but the majority of people going to the games are getting their tickets via a second party (ie. stubhub) and aren’t paying face value anyways. So the original buyer ends up making $95 instead of $100, can’t imagine them being that upset.
    It does always tick me off that I end up paying around a lot more then the ticket is stamped…that being said, if I could get a ticket for $80 and sell it for $200, I probably would as well.

    We want to offer you value, but not really.

    Let’s see how many tix they sell at that rate (or higher) once Manning retires. I’m thinking they will lose at least a quarter of their season ticket holders.

  21. tjacks7 says: Feb 21, 2014 8:12 AM

    There’s plenty of value. They’re exciting to watch in the regular season and if you go to a meaningful game you have the chance to watch them get slaughtered by 35 points.

  22. joetoronto says: Feb 21, 2014 8:23 AM

    That Peyton Manning, he’s like a money vacuum.

  23. clubcolo says: Feb 21, 2014 8:24 AM

    Lay an egg in the playoffs two years in a row……….raise ticket prices two years in a row…..nice job Pat B…

  24. somethingsmellsrotten says: Feb 21, 2014 10:44 AM

    Gotta pay MegaHead that mega salary. And that stadium is only sold out every Sunday because of corporate purchases of unsold tickets…don’t fool yourself.

  25. coreyengelen says: Feb 22, 2014 7:20 PM

    Maybe Peyton will throw in a free Large Papa John’s Pizza with every ticket…now that he owns all of them in Denver…lol
