The Green Bay Packers announced their annual increase in ticket prices on Thursday. It is the eighth year in a row they’ve jacked up prices and then spit out some PR garbage as the reason they’ve done so.
The increases are actually modest, but they’re increases nonetheless. Season ticket holders are getting hit with $7 increase per seat, per game. For the Green Package holders, who get six regular season games and one preseason contest, that’s a total increase of $49 per seat. Gold Package ticket holders, who get two regular-season games and one preseason game, will pay a total of $21 more per seat.
Please, make an excuse for your continued greed, Mark Murphy.
“We project this increase will place us just below the NFL average,” Murphy said in a brochure sent to season ticket holders. “This pricing model continues to assure an excellent value for the highly regarded gameday experience at Lambeau Field while also providing a fair visiting team share to our NFL partners.”
What do fans think? Not that old Ginger Gap Tooth gives a shit…
They think the Packers can stuff their price hike.
@packers I have no problem with you raising ticket prices, if needed. But raising them to appease other teams is disgraceful.

Wouldn't be an NFL off-season without the #Packers raising ticket prices!
