M’s say they won’t raise ticket prices next year … sort of
From Hickey in today’s PI. Kind of a no-brainer considering the team’s performance and the state of the economy.Â However…
One area where the Mariners thought their 2008 ticket plans did well were the seven games (against the Red Sox and Yankees) designated as “premium games.” The tickets for those games cost more and still sold well despite the premium price tag.
“The seven premium games worked well,” Armstrong said. “We’re thinking of expanding that.”
Any bets on what other teams will be considered premium competition next year? Angels? The arch-nemesis Padres? Rays?!?!
FWIW, here’s how the M’s stacked up against all other teams in terms of ticket prices in 2008.
