Packers fans’ reactions to ticket price increases come from every direction | Green Bay Press Gazzette

GREEN BAY – It’s easier to raise season-ticket prices when your team is successful, but Green Bay Packers fans’ reactions to this year’s increases were not much different than in winning years.

Some say they understand the increases, others point out the already high cost of attending games, and, relatively new in Packers world, some say that back-to-back losing seasons should at least mean a freeze in prices, if not a reduction.

“Of course I don’t want anything to go up, but that’s not realistic, so I expect it. I usually go. I don’t have these to sell them. Unless there’s a reason I can’t go, I’m going,” said Troy Pflum of North Fond du Lac, who has the Green package of one preseason and six regular-season games.

ast week, the Packers said they raised ticket prices between $1 and $6 per game for 2019, with the cost of more than half of Lambeau Field’s seats increasing $1 or $2. The average 3.1 percent increase was the smallest in 10 years of consecutive increases.

“As a season ticket holder, I get that the Packers need to reach the midpoint,” Tweeted @titletownmike. “I think they are doing small increases annually instead of one big increase. I appreciate that approach.”

Twitter user @spinnow said price increases are infuriating after two bad seasons — the Packers were 7-9 in 2017 and 6-9-1 in 2018 — but with so many people willing to buy tickets, he understands business factors prevail.
