Eagles raise ticket prices for 2013 season

Al Bello

The Eagles have announced their first ticket price hike since 2009.

After not raising prices last year, the Eagles have announced that they will indeed hike ticket prices for the 2013 season. Here are the exact prices from the Eagles, but overall it's about a 9.5% increase.

Lower Level Sideline seats and Upper Level Loge seats have increased from $95 to $105.
Lower Level Endzone seats have increased from $85 to $95.
General Upper Level seats have increased from $70 to $75.

It's a pretty marginal increase overall and likely just in line with the gradual inflation of ticket prices in general. This is actually the first time since 2009 the team has hiked its prices, which still remain the lowest in the NFC East. Overall, Eagles tickets are the 11th most expensive in the NFL.

"We have made some dramatic changes this offseason, including the hiring of Coach Chip Kelly," wrote Eagles president Don Smolenski in a letter season ticket holders. "But one thing that hasn't changed - and Coach Kelly appreciates this - is that the passion [the fans] display and the support [the fans] provide with [their] loyalty to [the] Eagles makes this a special place to play football."

"We are also embarking on a two-year stadium improvement plan at Lincoln Financial Field focused on enhancing the game day experience."

Now, the obvious reaction will be "how could they raise prices after such a crappy season?" The answer is, because you'll pay it.

Let's face it, the Eagles season ticket waiting list is years long and their renewal rate is something like 98% per year. When single game tickets go on sale before the year, the entire season sells out in a couple of minutes. There's an incredible demand for these seats that doesn't show any signs of slowing down.

While a long and extended period of losing could change that, the Eagles will obviously feel that they've put themselves on the right track with the Chip Kelly hire. Certainly his arrival along with the franchise's highest draft pick in 14 years will bring some renewed excitement to the Linc in September... and I'm sure the ticket sales will reflect that.
