The Broncos assured that linebacker Von Miller will be making a lot of money in 2016 on Tuesday by using a franchise tag on the impending free agent that will pay him more than $14 million if the two sides can’t agree to a long-term deal that will guarantee him even more.
They also moved to ensure that the team itself will be taking in even more money in the year to come. For the fifth straight season, the Broncos will be raising season ticket prices. The increase will be $3 per ticket or an average of 3.05 percent, which will bump the average price of a ticket to a Broncos game to $101.49.
“We feel like the value proposition is fair to the fans. We want to continue to drive revenue to compete on the field and enhance the fan experience,” Broncos’ senior vice president of business operations Mac Freeman said, via the Denver Post. “The secondary market continues to give us real clarity into the true value and demand for our tickets. Tickets are sold at an average of two to three times their face value on the secondary market.”
The Broncos will be dropping the prices of preseason games with tickets that used to go for $50-180 going for $27-$93 as they join other teams in charging less for tickets to games populated by the soon to be unemployed.
