Browns season ticket prices will not increase for 2010 and the cost for select seats will be reduced, the team announced Friday.
In the past seven years, the Browns have raised prices only twice and their prices remain among the lowest in the NFL. In a 2009 study by Team Marketing Report, the Browns' average ticket price was $54.65 and its average for a premium ticket was $198.47, below the NFL averages of $74.99 and $226.23, respectively.
Seats with prices reduced are the last five rows in sections I and J and the last 15 rows in section F, which went down $5 per game.
Two changes have been instituted under new president Mike Holmgren. Season tickets will be available in the Family Zone, an alcohol-free area, at $32 per game if purchased for the season. Also, each season ticket account holder will have a personal representative and will receive in-stadium discounts on concessions, team merchandise and season parking.
''Having faced the Browns several times in Cleveland as a head coach, I know what a home field advantage our stadium can provide,'' Holmgren said in a statement. ''We're excited about continuing to build the type of team that our fans can be proud of. I know that they will be an integral part of any success that we have and that is why we are pleased to keep our ticket prices as affordable as possible for our fans.''
Renewal information will be mailed later this month, but can also be done online at ClevelandBrowns.com. Flexible payment options and renewal prizes will again be offered there.
