Texans to Raise Tickets Prices in 2009

From: Houston Chronicle

The Texans are increasing ticket prices by 3.7 percent next season, meaning the average price will be $67.37 a ticket compared to $64.94 last season when they finished with their second consecutive 8-8 record.

The Texans, who have sold out all 70 games in their seven-year history, also announced Friday that parking will increase by $3 a car in every lot.

“We’re sensitive to the economic challenges that our fans are facing,” Texans president Jamey Rootes said. “We have worked diligently to implement a pricing structure for 2009 that keeps our prices in the lower half of the NFL but is adequate to continue our progress both on the field and off. Fielding a competitive team and delivering a world-class experience for our fans demands that our revenues keep pace with our costs.”

The Texans are not increasing the price of 5,500 of their least expensive seats.

The average ticket price in the NFL last season was $72.20. Even though the Texans are one of the league’s high-revenue teams, their average ticket price will rank in the bottom half of the NFL.

Next season, the Texans home schedule includes: Indianapolis, Tennessee, Jacksonville, New England, the New York Jets, Oakland, San Francisco and Seattle.
