After barely missing out on a Super Bowl appearance, the Green Bay Packers will be raising ticket prices for the 2015 regular season. The Packers are one of the few NFL teams that sell out every year with season tickets only. Packers tickets are so popular in Green Bay that there is a waiting list of name for season tickets that is over 81,000 people long. That’s just over the capacity at Lambeau Field of 80,978.
With so much demand, the Packers could set the pricing at almost anything they wanted and still have enough people to sell out the stadium. However, the franchise tends to keep ticket prices relatively affordable for the fans in Green Bay. For 2015, the Packers will raise prices between $3 to $5 depending on the seat.
Packers ticket prices will be as follows:
End zone seats – $80 (increase of $3)
South end zone, 700 Level – $89 (increase of $4)
End zone to the 20‐yard line – $92 (increase of $4)
South end zone, 600 Level – $96 (increase of $4)
Between the 20-yard lines – $105 (increase of $5)
Suite tickets – $105 (increase of $5)
In a letter to season ticket holders, Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy stated the price increase is projected to place the Packers 18th in average ticket price, which would still be below the overall league average.
On the secondary market, Packers tickets had an average price of $221.66 for the 2014 season. That placed them ninth in the league, showing the high demand for tickets whenever they hit the market.
Adding intrigue to Packers tickets this year will be the jersey retirement ceremony for Brett Favre. The Packers announced there will be a ceremony at one of the home games this year, though since the 2015 schedule has yet to be released, there is no official date.
Packers home opponents for the upcoming 2015 season include NFC North rivals the Chicago Bears, Minnesota Vikings and Detroit Lions, along with the Dallas Cowboys, Kansas City Chiefs, St. Louis Rams, San Diego Chargers and Seattle Seahawks.
