Browns Ticket Prices To Increase

           Cleveland Browns Stadium 

I guess it is the price of doing business – and being successful, as well.  The Cleveland Browns are expected to announce Friday an increase in 2008 ticket prices for the vast majority of the 72,300-seat Cleveland Browns Stadium.  While not all seating will be affected, those that are will see an increase of about 10%, increasing the average cost of a seat to about $66.  Most Browns fans will see their tickets increase to either $5, $8 or $10 per seat.

Team senior vice president of business operations Mike Keenan said that ticket prices are assessed every year; the decision to raise prices, added Keenan, was based on several factors – including higher labor costs, other league economics, the need to remain competitive within their division and overall team performance.  Specific price increases will be explained to Browns’ season ticketholders when they receive their mailed information about renewing their seats.

Specifically, fans who sit in the lower Dawg Pound will see the largest increase, from $40 to $50; seats in the upper section of the Dawg Pound will rise from $40 to $45.  Prime seating, including club seats and suite tickets, will climb from $77 to $85; however, 20% of the seats will not see a bump in ticket prices; those tickets – mainly along the corners of the upper bowl – will stay at $32 per seat.  The last ticket price increase was in 2005, when tickets were raised about $3-4 per seat.
