The Seahawks on Tuesday announced a four percent rise in season ticket prices for the 2016 season while also announcing other information, including dates of single-game ticket sales.
The Seahawks on Tuesday announced that season ticket prices for the 2016 season will increase by a blended average rate of four percent and that variable pricing will also continue.
The Seahawks also announced that season ticket holders will begin to receive renewal information in the coming days and also said that the team will “continue to price 10 percent of all tickets at or below the average lowest ticket price in the NFL.’’
The Seahawks introduced variable pricing in 2015 and said that will continue this season. That means that the prices will reflect “the value and demand’’ for each game. Final pricing, the team said, will be set once the NFL schedule is released, which is expected in late April.
The team also stated that for the second straight year it has “recaptured’’ tickets from ticket brokers to distribute to fans. The team announced that 1,350 tickets previously given to brokers will instead go to fans through “season ticket upgrades, Blue Pride wait list and single-game tickets’’ and that the team has recaptured 5,300 tickets since the end of the 2014 season.
