Patriots win Super Bowl, keep season ticket prices flat

Getty Images

If any team had the right to raise ticket prices, it’s the team that just won the Super Bowl.

The Patriots just won the Super Bowl. Theirs season ticket renewals went out last week, however, and they reflect no increases for 2017.

As one source explained it to PFT, the Patriots are one of only two teams since 2003 to win the Super Bowl and not raise prices. The Patriots did it three times, after winning Super Bowl XXXVIII, Super Bowl XLIX, and Super Bowl LI. (The Patriots raised ticket prices after winning Super Bowl XXXIX.)

The only other team since then to win the Super Bowl and not increase ticket prices were the Giants, after winning Super Bowl XLVI.

    Alright haters, spin this in a negative light…

    No doubt some of the cacophony of fools will find a way to cast this in a negative light.

    Not a pats fan, but I have to say this made me smile. It is nice to see them not take the opportunity to gouge their fans more. Much respect. Hopefully other teams will follow their lead on this in the future.

    Class act of the league.

  6. maust1013 says: Mar 7, 2017 5:53 PM

    In the interest of full disclosure the story should have mentioned the Patriots already represent among the most expensive game day experiences in the league. But with no PSL’s in a privately built stadium that’s to be expected for the quality of football we get to see. Unlike many NFL consumers Patriots fans get plenty of what we pay for.

    And now for the expected whiny trollathon…

    they can’t hold back all the time, otherwise, they would not even be able to keep up with inflation.

    Thanks Mr Kraft, very expensive indeed especially where we sit but well worth the joy our legendary hero’s deliver year in and year out. 🙂

    Props to the patriots. But it’s not as if I would’ve been able to afford it either way..

  11. tylawspick6 says: Mar 7, 2017 6:03 PM

    good. it is already the most expensive ticket in the afc.

    good move by the krafts

    no need to gouge

  12. weepingjebus says: Mar 7, 2017 6:03 PM

    They’ve probably made $50 million off the pro shop in the last month alone.

  13. pastabelly says: Mar 7, 2017 6:09 PM

    The game day experience at Gillette Stadium is pretty good too. If you don’t want to tailgate, Patriot Place restaurants are a great option. We’re there more for movies and going out than games (maybe one game a year). The Krafts have done well by their fans and those of us who live within 15 minutes of Patriot Place.

    if you’re not tailgating at gillette, you are sort of a dork
    and missing out.

    easily a top 5 tailgate in the country

    lambeau is there, kc, buffalo is fun, but foxborough’s
    lots are all connected, so it is one big party

    In fairness, it’s not like they were cheap to start with,trust me. Even in comparison with the rest of the league. But, with 50,000 people on the waiting list, they could probably charge whatever they want. So, good for them.

    ————————————————————-

    Actually the Patriots inflate the footballs to 12.50 PSI to comply with the NFL rules. Then cold weather & rain drops the PSI numbers.

    If you were not too busy attempting to be funny, you could have watched the video that was posted online by a Steelers fan. The video can be found by searching for the following title: “DEFLATE GATE & WHY SCIENCE SAYS THE PATRIOTS DID NOT TAMPER WITH FOOTBALLS”

    You would have had lots of data to show the PSI numbers dropping during NFL games but Roger Goodell decided to keep the PSI information from the 2015 season secret. The data confirmed what the scientists all told the court while making all the people who believed Roger Goodell look like the fools that they are.

  22. droppedinagreasefire says: Mar 7, 2017 6:26 PM

    Hardly a surprise. The Pats could have tripled the tix prices and the arrogant fans would have gladly paid because that is all they truly have in their non self-esteemless lives. GOD BLESS TOM BRADY ON 3!

    The only delusional posts on here come from the pathetic willfully ignorant science denying dupes who still believe that someone deflated footballs.

    Any idea when the NFL plans on issuing a press release containing the PSI information from the 2015 season?

  24. maust1013 says: Mar 7, 2017 6:30 PM

    Drool is so obsessed with getting his cheap shot in that he couldn’t wait 4 minutes to make sure his whine got posted before quoting himself. Ice up son, the beatings will continue until morale improves.

  25. mackcarrington says: Mar 7, 2017 6:31 PM

    All New Englanders are flush with money because of the fishing industry. They wouldn’t have a problem if Kraft decided to raise prices.

  26. elrock7 says: Mar 7, 2017 6:35 PM

    Big deal! Kazillionaire owner not raises prices after SB win. Should he punish the fans for team success? Salary cap world, not like his payroll is going to go up.

    Why doesn’t he cut the prices?

    Note to self…..
    Under no circumstance will you ever allow yourself to spend even a single minute of golden years when you are in your 70’s looking online for articles pertaining to a team that you don’t root for so you can troll the fans of that team. What ever you do…….Please do not ever become that pathetic. Understand that you will only appear to be ealous and foolish when you post nonsense in a futile effort to try to discredit that team.

When the Pats were smoking them by the start of the 4th qtr, most of the steeler fans were home in their onesies. Guess they had to get up early for the mill.

    “Why doesn’t he cut the prices?”

    How about because he paid for his own stadium instead of moving the team someplace stupid enough to let him extort a billion dollar palace from the taxpayers? And that he will have no doubt large payments on his loans for years to come? And hasn’t gouged the fans with PSLs on top of that?

  41. beachsidejames says: Mar 7, 2017 7:16 PM

    Going to the games is crazy expensive these days. Two beers at the game is north of $20 and the vender is still looking for a tip. Spending 500.00 for two people is not hard to do. I hate most Patriot fans but I hate game day prices way more…. Happy to see Pats fans catching a break on this one.

  44. itsfootballfolks says: Mar 7, 2017 7:24 PM

    This is typical of Mr. Kraft and his family. Imagine that, only two franchises didn’t raise prices after winning a Super Bowl.

    They have brought thousands of jobs to the area, they demand volunteerism from their players, they help out the poorest of the poor and the most unfortunate of those among us.

    Bob and Myra Kraft (God rest her soul) and their children are the epitome of class.

    If you leave out ancient history the Patriots have owned the Steelers for a long time. They did get one superbowl during the Brady era so kudos to them for that much at least. But other than that the Steelers havent just been owned by the Patriots, they have only been so-so against the rest of the league. I understand your anger and frustration, its mostly from convincing yourself each year that they are something they arent only to have reality crash back in. I know the Patriots have been the team that delivered that reality a few more times than most, but a bunch of other teams have done it too. That emotional roller coaster is obviosly all you have ever known and its gotten to you.

    Let me help you. I know you can’t count to forty so let me help you. There has been a waiting list for forty years for season tickets Rug so what the owners of those tickets do is their business. Keep trying Teddy…….baited ….hooked…and flipping on the bottom of the boat…here fishy…fishy.

    Agreed. Especially if you know guys that work in the fishing industry. Fishing has got to be one of the harshest ways to earn whats not all that much money. Im sometimes in awe of their toughness to take it.
