GREEN BAY, Wis. (WKBT) - The Green Bay Packers announced plans today for a price increase on stadium bowl tickets for the 2018 season. The price of each preseason ticket will increase by $2 and each regular season ticket will increase by $7.
Invoices sent to season ticket holders this week included a brochure which outlined the new pricing and previewed next season’s home opponents and related events. The brochure also mentions, in order to reduce counterfeit tickets, that PDF (or “Print at Home”) tickets will no longer be offered. With this change, tickets forwarded electronically to others or sold via Ticketmaster will now be scanned on smartphones as the only mode for stadium entry.
“Pay as we Play”, a method to pay for playoff tickets, is recommended for purchasing tickets this season mow that Gold package holders are included in the early entry program. By registering online for the early entry Pay as we Play option, both Green and Gold package ticket holders can lock in special pricing for a possible Wild Card home game.
“We expect this will place us just below the overall NFL average, the figure we use each year to set our prices,” Murphy said in a letter sent with the brochure. “This structure continues to allow us to provide appropriate revenue to our partners in the NFL and also recognizes the great value our ticket holders receive for a top notch game day experience at Lambeau Field.”
The Packers will again be using variable pricing for the preseason and regular season games. With the $2 and $7 increases, tickets in respective areas in 2018 will cost:
· End zone seats – $54 for preseason, $109 for regular season
· South end zone, 700 Level – $59 for preseason, $119 for regular season
· End zone to the 20‐yard line – $62 for preseason, $122 for regular season
· South end zone, 600 Level – $66 for preseason, $126 for regular season
· Between the 20-yard lines – $71 for preseason, $136 for regular season
Payment is due in the Packers’ ticket office by March 30.
Additional information regarding ticket prices, as well as invoices, will be sent to premium seat ticket holders this week.
