    Pats tickets see price hike: Top seats will cost $125
    By Michael Felger
    Friday, February 18, 2005

    The Patriots remain one of the few teams in NFL history to build their own stadium with private dollars and not charge their fans personal seat licenses, but that won't take the sting out of the news season ticket-holders will be receiving in the mail starting next week.
    The most expensive ticket prices in the league are about to get even more expensive.
    The Pats announced yesterday that they will increase their ticket prices at Gillette Stadium for the first time since moving into the building to start the 2002 season.
    The prices will range from $125 for 100-level sideline seats, to $59 for 300-level end zone seats.
    The Pats will charge $89 for 100-level corner/end zone seats and 200-level corner/end zone seats, and $75 for 300-level sideline seats.
    Last year, the Pats had an average ticket price of $75.33, which put them well ahead of the team with the second-highest priced tickets, the Washington Redskins ($68.12). The average NFL ticket in 2004 cost $54.75.
    However, most of the NFL's ticket price numbers are skewed by the fact that many teams charge personal seat licenses for the season ticket-holders. PSLs are one-time surcharges - usually in the thousands of dollars - on top of the cost of the individual tickets.
    With the success the Pats have enjoyed in recent years, winning three Super Bowls in the past four years to become the next NFL dynasty, it was probably expected by many for ticket prices to increase.
    The Kraft family built $325 million Gillette Stadium totally with private dollars. They were loaned $57 million in infrastructure money by the state, which they must pay back.
    A limited number of tickets for each game will be put on sale sometime in June.
    The Pats' home schedule this year features their three division opponents - the Jets, Dolphins and Bills - the AFC South champion Colts and the AFC West champion Chargers, as well as the Buccaneers, Raiders and Saints.


    Highest average price in the league from Mr. Kraft

    Woody should take a page out of Kraft's book instead of trying to gouge the taxpayers in the state of New York.

    Don't think many of these Midwest Pats fans will be affected much. If you can't make it to Jacksonville, why bother with M*******?

    Right, and that is the way it should be. The people who go to the stadium for whatever reason, football, concerts faires or what ever event are the ones who should pay for it. You dont ask the taxpayers to pay millions of dollars so that Billionaires can pay millionaires to play a game.

    I was against Kraft getting any money from the state, the team is making money, he wanted to make more, that is his right and bless him for it, just dont ask for my tax money to do so.

    You dont want to pay the price of tickets dont go to the game.

    A lot of owners in professional sports don't understand one very simple concept- A winning franchise fills the stadium and, in turn, increases revenues. You don't need gimmicks, big-name players, etc. All the fans want is to watch a winning team.
