The Eagles still have the cheapest seats of any NFC East team. The team hasn’t raised ticket prices since 2009. And they even have the 11th best ticket prices in the NFL despite being in one of the game’s largest markets and having a mile-long ticket waiting list. But, you know, the team was a disastrous 4-12 last year and they were an underwhelming 8-8 the year prior.
The increase is relatively modest as the team plans to raise each ticket by a $8 dollars in 2013.
The cheapest tickets rose from $70 to $75 dollars, while the most expensive will jump from $95 to $105 dollars.
Eagles president Don Smolenski explained the pricing increase in a letter sent a long with next season’s invoices.
“We have made some dramatic changes this offseason, including the hiring of Coach Chip Kelly,” he wrote. “But one thing that hasn’t changed – and Coach Kelly appreciates this – is that the passion [the fans] display and the support [the fans] provide with [their] loyalty to [the] Eagles makes this a special place to play football.”
While the news hasn’t been met with a great deal of excitement, something tells me people will still show up. Just a hunch.
