Is this a sign of what’s to come or is this because fans will flock to see America’s Quarterback? I hope it’s a little of both. The move to increase ticket prices leaves fans wondering, “Why would they increase the prices when they haven’t won more?” Whatever one’s belief is, the raising of the tickets price shouldn’t come as a shock, as a matter of fact, it’s been a blessing they have not done so, in such a long time.
“After eight years of no ticket price increases, and season ticket prices hovering near the bottom of the NFL-pricing spectrum, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced on Wednesday that the team will be raising ticket prices on all general admission seating. Club seats will not be affected by the approximate 20 percent price increase. Bucs chief operating officer Brain Ford released a statement on Wednesday.” – “We are one of only two (NFL) clubs that have not raised prices over the past eight years, in an effort to offer our fans the greatest possible value,” Ford said in a statement. “As a result, in 2015 our average general ticket price ranked as the second-lowest in the league. In 2016, we will continue to offer some of the NFL’s lowest priced tickets.” – Reported by Mark Cook
