Jets' ticket prices during the 2010-11 season were the second most expensive of any team, averaging $114.64 each (per Team Marketing Report). The high ticket prices further reinforce that blue-collar fans are continuing to get priced out of attending NFL games.
But don't worry, ticket prices will be increasing in the 2011-12 season, by an average of 2.3 percent.
This news comes just two weeks before the Collective Bargaining Agreement is set to expire, which could very well mark the beginning of a lockout.
The Jets revealed ticket pricing and policy modifications Tuesday, according to NYDN's Manish Mehta. The result is that upper level seat prices will remain unchanged, and the cost of all seats with a personal seat license will increase by $5.
The adjustments do help season-ticket holders who are without a guarantee of football in 2011. While they will be required to pay 50 percent of their total package by April 1, the remaining portion won't be due until the league announces the date that training camps will open.
In the event of a lockout, the Jets would refund a proportional amount of money to season-ticket holders. PSL money would still be due, though ... no refunds come with this purchase!
The Jets also reduced orange level parking prices for season-ticket holders from $25 to $15, and will build more restrooms on the upper level of New Meadowlands Stadium
