Missing the playoffs won’t stop the Packers from raising their ticket prices.

The Packers informed season ticket holders on Wednesday that the prices of of tickets will be going up from 2.4 percent to 5.8 percent for regular-season games, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

“Our overall average ticket price, which includes general bowl and premium seating components, will be just below the NFL’s average,” Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy said in a letter to season ticket holders. “We try to keep our tickets as affordable as possible. Additionally, as a business partner to the other 31 NFL clubs, we also want to include an appropriate visiting team share when arriving at our pricing each season.”

The Packers say they have a waiting list of more than 140,000 for season tickets and a renewal rate of more than 99 percent, so it’s safe to say they could easily charge more and still sell out every game.

    Downstream of Aaron Rodgers’ contract, etc. 😉

    AR’s contract has nothing to do with ticket prices. Neither does any other player salary. There is a thing known as the salary cap that has been around for a long time.

  2. Selling tickets, no problem. The Packers have a massive fanbase, we are not exactly talking about the Charger fanbase which could fit in a phone booth with plenty of room to spare for Clark Kent to do his thing.

  3. So Packer fans will pay more next year or they could purchase a copy of the movie, Titanic; both have the same ending.

  4. When the NFL and teams pay 50 to 60 million a year for ONE player SOMEONES GOTTA PAY the bill …

  5. On a more important subject has Aaron Rogers made a decision to play for the Packers next year? LOL

  6. If the Packers had an additional 140,000 REAL people willing to actually buy season tickets to their games, they’d add more seats.

    Packer fans refuse to believe it, but no Packer game has ever been sold out. Just check the NFL’s official paid attendance numbers…

    This past season, the Packers averaged 76,180 fans that purchased tickets to their home games. Lambeau Field has 81,441 seats. That’s almost 5,000 unsold tickets per game.

    That’s why Lambeau Field isn’t the stadium with the largest capacity, in spite of a ‘waiting’ list of 140,000 supposed people that would buy season tickets today if available.

    13 NFL teams actually sold 100% or more of their capacity to their games last year.

    That puts the Packers with the 18 other teams that can’t sell out their stadiums.

  7. The NFL has priced people out, unless you give up your monthly mortgage to go to a game. I haven’t been since 2001, 2 games, free tickets. I’d love to go back to Arrowhead for the game experience, to pricey for me.

  8. It never ends. I live here. Occasionally see a game. They are a money making machine. It’s never enough. So far, the people here accept continually getting bled.

  9. My fans don’t mind. They’ll do whatever it takes to get me back, so show me the money.

    They can raise them 20% and people would buy.There’s nothing else to do in? Green. Bay.

    Season ticket holders live across the state of Wisconsin, and in fact all across this country. I know of a season ticket holder who lives in Florida and flies into GB the day before the game and goes home the day after.

  11. And still below the NFL average. This is what you can do when you’re the 13-time world champion franchise in the smallest market in the NFL. What an impressive organization. Happy to be a season ticket holder of this historic franchise.

  12. I may be an opposing fan, but its a great stadium to visit. The only real negatives are getting to Green Bay and the lame bench seats.

  13. Its only fair.luckily the Packers offer a very good team year after year to make the game worth watching for the price of admission unlike most NFL home teams do.we can all identify the teams worth the high price of tickets to watch and those that aren’t.

  14. Yeah, because the TV and sponsorship money just isn’t enough. Looking forward to the annual financial statement the Packers release. I’m sure their bank balance is fat and happy.

    Why worry about seats? All the people in front of you do is stand up…….

  16. Its capacity is 81,441–second only to MetLife Stadium (by about 1,000). Since it has been sold out since 1960, their announcement of attendance is actually “butts in seats”–not tickets sold. So not only doe GB have a backlog, they are filling a higher capacity regularly than any NFL market but NY.

  17. They don’t have seats. They did not raise the price of a seat. They are now charging more to crambed into a row of bleachers. They are raising the bleacher price. Horrible stadium, but bleachers are the only way they can stay warm.

  18. So wait, Rodgers comes out of his darkness retreat and ticket prices raise the same day? If he didn’t some out would they still raise the prices?

  19. OK, so I have talked to Mark Murphy, Packers CEO about this in person in the past–true story. Green Bay strives to be in the top 10 revenue teams in the NFL in the area of revenue shared with the league. They have the second biggest stadium, so they don’t have to push ticket prices to the stratosphere to accomplish this–they can hang around the average ticket price (so long as they sell out).

    The reason for this goal may surprise you. GB does not want to get into a position in which it is considered a financial drag on the league. There have been multiple instances in which the franchise was at risk of losing its NFL charter in the past. (They needed to build Lambeau in 1957, and they needed to expand it and refurbish it in 2003). Were they to fall far behind the rest of the league, their continuance in GB would not be a sure thing. “Stockholders” or not.

  20. The NFL loves the share of ticket money they get from Green Bay. I have been to games there and it is too expensive to make it a regular thing.

    The cost of living in Green Bay is dirt cheap. This won’t matter.

    Actually about the same as Dallas and Houston.
