Jets Raise Ticket Prices For Lower Level

by Phil Sullivan on February 10, 2014

Metlife StadiumThe NY Jets sent out their season ticket invoices today.  They are still offering the multiple payment option, which starts on March 17.  They did raise the lower level prices (PSL).  From Bloomberg.com:

The New York Jets raised season ticket prices in the lower bowl of the National Football League team’s MetLife Stadium for the first time in three years, while lowering prices in the upper decks.

The team raised the cost of tickets in the lowest level by an average of 3 percent, with every seat seeing some increase, team President Neil Glat said. Upper deck tickets in the 82,500-seat stadium were lowered by an average of 10 percent, including the addition of more seats at the $50 level, the team’s cheapest.

The price increase isn’t very large but it is more the principal that has some fans upset.  Erik Manassy from Jets Twit summed up the situation well.

Team President Neil Glat also added:

The cost to our fans is something that we take pretty seriously,” Glat said. He said the changes were made after a look at the team’s ticket data, their value on the secondary market, pricing from around the NFL and pricing for other sports and entertainment in the New York area.

The bottom line is this, the lower level tickets all require a PSL. So the Jets don’t run a huge risk of fans walking away over a modest price increase. The mezzanine prices are already out of control, so the Jets left these intact. And the upper deck has room for more season ticket holders, so those prices were reduced.

Here is a thread from the JN Forums on New York Jets season ticket prices.

I started JetNation in 2005 and have been a New York Jets season ticket holder since graduating from high school. My dream is to see the New York Jets win the Super Bowl. Until then, I will be right here on JetNation writing, dreaming and talking NY Jets football.
