GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- If your name has finally come up on the waiting list for Green Bay Packers season tickets, they will cost more this year.

Lambeau Field's landlord, the Stadium District Board, has raised the seat license fee for new ticket holders. The "green" package of seven games goes up $700 to $2,100. The "gold" or three-game package will go up $300 to $900.

WLUK-TV says the change in user fees also affects the seats created by the expansion of Lambeau Field. The Packers are adding about 6,700 seats in the south end zone. The seat user fees could generate up to $20 million, which would be directly applied to the $143 million expansion.
