Detroit Lions raise ticket prices for 2017 regular season

Last spring, Detroit Lions president Rod Wood said that the team would be raising ticket prices again for the 2017 season. On Saturday, the Lions sent invoices to their season-ticket holders and for the fourth consecutive season, they will see an increase in prices.

Ticket prices will go up an average of 2.8% for the 2017 regular season, that equates to an average of $99 per ticket. That average places the Lions in the bottom half of the NFL.

“I chose to recommend the ticket price increase that we put through,” Wood said last spring. “It still keeps us as only the 24th most expensive average ticket price in the NFL. I would like to get to the point where we’re at least average, because unless we’re average we’re going to be struggling to compete nationally with other teams that have more resources from investing in things that help the football team.”

The Lions 2017 home games will be against Chicago, Green Bay, Minnesota, Arizona, Atlanta, Carolina, Cleveland, and Pittsburgh.
