Dolphins raise ticket prices

Fresh off a 7-9 season in 2009, the Miami Dolphins are raising ticket prices.

The Miami Herald has the full breakdown of the Dolphins’ ticket pricing plans for 2010, which include charging about $5 more per ticket for seats in the shade than for seats in the sun.

The Dolphins hired experts from Harvard and MIT to help them figure out how to squeeze every possible penny out of their fans, and after studying the pricing, the team gave season-ticket buyers an average increase of 5.8 percent.

The average individual game ticket will cost $92.69 a game and the average season ticket will cost $70.54 a game.
