Some New York Jets Tickets To Increase For First Time Since 2011
February 12, 2014
Even though the New York Jets went 8-8 in 2013 it was still a successful season for them as head coach Rex Ryan was able to get the most out of his players and rookie quarterback who were not shy about their love and respect for him. Due to that Ryan received a contract extension this past offseason as the Jets appear to be trending upwards.
This positive momentum has prompted the organization to increase their season ticket prices for the first time in three years when they were coming off of back-to-back AFC Championship Games under Ryan. The Jets now have a different quarterback former West Virginia University quarterback Geno Smith starting every game for them last year and showing promise as the season went progressed, despite playing with a depleted receiving corps which should be revamped this offseason through free agency and the NFL Draft. A season ago the Jets had the an average ticket price of $174 for their home games on the secondary market ranking them in the top half of the league.
After carefully studying the market the Jets opted not to implement a standard increase across all season ticket holders but rather to look at each individual section and change prices accordingly based on the demographics of the people in each section. This has led to the New York Jets actually decreasing season ticket prices in the Upper Level of MetLife Stadium and increasing season tickets in the Lower Level with Mezzanine tickets remaining unchanged. In the Upper Level, where there are no Personal Seat Licenses (PSL), season tickets have dropped by a whopping 10% for 2014.
As for the Lower Level the Jets decided to apply an increase of 3% for those seats which are closer to the field and do require a PSL to own. Altogether the Jets average price of a ticket at MetLife Stadium for the 2014 season should end up falling by a total of 1% - 2% overall. These moves were made in the hopes of maximizing the number season ticket holders at MetLife according to Jets President Neil Glat.
