Packers raise ticket prices again

Getty Images

The Packers haven’t been to the playoffs lately, but they still have bills to pay.

Via Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, the Packers announced their regular price increase Tuesday.

As increases go, it’s a small one, with more than half the tickets going up by $2 or less per seat per game. The average increase is between $1 and $6 per seat per game.

“This pricing increase continues our practice of keeping our prices just below the middle of NFL pricing, while recognizing the value of the gameday experience at Lambeau Field and providing shared revenue to our fellow NFL teams,” Packers president Mark Murphy said in a release.

The Packers haven’t finished over .500 or been to the playoffs the last two seasons, a rare slump for a team which has enjoyed consistent quarterback play and success.

  1. Supply, meet demand.

    I am more than happy to pay the extra $2 per game per seat. Just drink 1 less beer in the stadium per year.

    Who am I kidding? Bottoms up!

  2. The packers oughta be ashamed of themselves by raising prices for their inferior product. They supposedly have the GOAT as QB. Given that this is the most important position in the NFL, how do you miss the playoffs two years in a row? If I was a fan looking to buy tickets, I would refuse to fork over extra cash to watch this floundering franchise. Or should I say “LaFluerdering” franchise.

  3. “Just below the middle of the NFL in pricing”

    The bargain of all of sports! The destination that is on the bucket list of every NFL fan in the world is still one of the best value tickets in the NFL. Outstanding!

  4. Ticket sales are a shared revenue with the visiting team IIRC. given GB has one of the largest attendance figures of the league, the league puts pressure on teams to increase ticket prices so be equitable to visitors and the rest of the league.

    It’s why Falcons cut food, not ticket prices.

  5. At least they just don’t go the route of diluting their shareholder base further by selling more of the team’s “stock.”

  6. The Packers are raising the ticket costs because Aaron Rodgers is stealing all their money. There’s plenty of greed to go around for both sides.

  7. Sure there are a few teams in the NFL that can raise ticket prices and still pack the house, but there are twice that number that sit 20-50% empty or more for every home game, GOOD LUCK to those teams trying to raise prices, then there are a few teams that can’t even give tickets away!

    I remember watching the Chargers vs Ravens Wild-card playoff game and the mid-tier was about 40-50% empty, the upper deck was >90% empty……….AT A PLAYOFF GAME!!!!! So sure the NFL says these games are all sell-outs but the shots of the stands tell us a completely different story. And then there’s the fact that the cameras won’t even show the stands at a lot of games. With $100+ tickets, $50 parking, $10 hot dogs and beer, I think people are deciding they have a lot better things to do with that $300-$600/week! Football has become a rich mans sport, at least for those that want to watch it live.

  8. Anyone displeased can bypass buying…and there are several reasons why a team with a HOF QB doesn’t make the playoffs ONE year. The first year they didn’t make it is obvious…the 2nd year because there wasn’t a defense left,

    To those unhappy fans…or… Packer trolls posting, don’t go. No one will notice.

    If you were a fan looking to buy tickets, you couldn’t.
    Not without paying broker prices on the 2nd hand market.

    Oh sure, you could put your name on the season ticket waiting list and perhaps get the chance to buy your tickets at face value in about 25 to 30 years from now like most of us had to. (29 years for me)

    Yes, the Packers have the ability to gouge their fans like most of the NFL does, but still keep their ticket prices in the median range, and for that, I’m thankful.

    After missing the playoffs for a 5th straight year i would ask for a refund!
    —————————————————————————-
    Yes, Im sure the Packers would be financially and devastated if a Viking troll with season tickets decided to sell their game tickets for the year (ie obtain a refund) and then not renew their season tickets. Of course, if they then changed their mind and decided to put their name back on the list to pick up new season tickets, they might become available through the waiting list some time around 2050.

  13. Packer fans are blessed to have this team, and the means to afford this modest increase.

    Some poor fans of lesser teams can’t even afford local ownership.

  14. Sure, Packers fans will pay whatever lol. But Lambeau tickets are by no means cheap, and those college-level bleacher seats aren’t exactly reflecting “the value of the gameday experience”.

    Also:
    per·va·sive Dictionary result for pervasive
    /pərˈvāsiv/Submit
    adjective
    (especially of an unwelcome influence or physical effect) spreading widely throughout an area or a group of people.

    So…widely spreading inferior team? Inferior but rising in popularity? Mmkay. Good ol’ Wisconsin high school education.

    It takes a lot of stones to raise the prices on that product, but I guess the clientele will gladly give them what they want.
    ———————-
    If the clientele will gladly give it to them, then why does it take stones to raise prices? You make no sense. Supply/demand.

  21. They have a captive audience and they know it. I mean it’s not like Packer fans are in a metropolitan city with a wealth of options of things to do to choose from.

  22. The ticket price increase must be from giving Aaron just under $67 million in cash last year and also having to put another $36 million in escrow to cover the remaining balance of his guaranteed money $103 million. That was probably all of their cash so now they can’t sign any decent free agents, well at least any who want some guaranteed money. So all those stock holder/ticket holder have to pay out of their pockets to watch Aaron miss a 5 yard out on a play to make the playoffs.

  23. This sounds like sour grapes from a guy who likely is a fan of a pervasively inferior team that hasn’t ever won a Super Bowl.

    What’s actually amazing is that one guy got suspended for something that still has yet to be proven yet the other guy with the supposedly “exemplary sportsmanship” is on record stating he attempts to over-inflate footballs pass the legal limit and sneak them by the refs in order to gain a competitive advantage.

    Really a Detroit fan trying to talk bad about a city??? Worst city in America by far. Bunch of crack dens and homeless and that’s the nice part of Detroit.

  37. Why would anyone want to pay more for a declining team. 2017 all the whiners said it was because Erin was hurt. 2018 they were worse with him. What will the excuse be in 2019 when they finish fourth in the division?

  38. You’re aware this proves nothing at all right? it’s just an arbitrary fact that has no relation to the argument, and there’s relatively almost no monetary difference.

    Oh, really?

    I thought Rodgers was greedy and bleeding the team dry.

    .. yet he’s made less than a guy who everyone says plays for the “hometown discount”. The poster child of that “theory”.

  39. Lots of talk about the Packers declining because we had one bad year under AR. Most of the people talking come from one place and completely ignore the fact that their own team went from 13-3 to 8-7-1 and spent $84 million to do it. Awareness folks. Have some.

    A trip to Lambeau Field is annually ranked as one of the best sports related game day experiences across several media platforms.
    Unlike most teams, it transcends the team’s current record or condition, especially if that record isn’t more than a blip in what has been an ocean of success.
    I honestly don’t see why it’s so hard for you to understand this.

    Just please stop with this nonsense. In 19 seasons, Brady has made $217M in career earnings, good for #4 on the all-time earnings list. In 14 seasons, Rodgers has made $204M in career earnings, good for #5 on the all-time list. So in 5 more seasons, Brady has only made $13M more than Rodgers. As I said previously, sometimes you get what you paid for and sometimes you don’t.

  44. As I said previously, sometimes you get what you paid for and sometimes you don’t.
    =====

    I agree.

    They got what they paid for in Rodgers = a guy who has been one of the highest paid QBs in relation to his value

    And they got what they paid for = overpaid scrubs like Matthews and Perry, bad FA signings in Graham and Bennett, and a bunch of bargain basement FA signings that never contributed

    .. the Pats are champs for a reason. The Packers aren’t champs, for a reason.

  45. .. the Pats are recent champs for a reason. The Packers aren’t recent champs, for a reason.

  46. People talking about how they would never go to Lambeau. Why? There is something about being in that stadium on game day. I have brought friends who weren’t Packer fans to games. They were amazed at how much fun the experience was. Everyone should try and get to Green Bay at least once for a game. It is a great time and I have never seen any opposing fan be abused.
